A battery operated printer made for the TI-74, TI-74S and TI-95 products.

Dismantling the PC-324 reveals a clean design centered around a TMC70016 microcontroller. The TMC70016 is a member of the TMS7000 family that was introduced in 1981 as an extension of the TMS1000 to compete with the successful Intel i8051, Motorola M6801, and Zilog Z8 microcontrollers.
