Texas Instruments introduced in 1989 with the TI-5332 and its sibbling TI-5322 two heavy-duty desktop printer / display calculators. Main differences between the two calculators is the 12-digit display. While the TI-5322 sports a traditional design, introduced the TI-5332 a novel, tiltable display for a more convenient reading position in POS applications.

Dismantling the TI-5322 reveals no big surprises, the printed circuit board (PCB) is centered around a NEC uPD7519G 4-bit single-chip microcomputer. We know this device already from the TI-5310 introduced in 1983. The uPD7519G is a member of the uPD7500 series and matches perfect the requirements of a printing desktop calculator:
