The Datamath Calculator Museum received this PLT WC1 Wireless Card together with some unique graphing calculators as a loan from Texas Instruments in February 2008 to photograph and document it.

The Dallas, TX based team nicknamed it PET Project including three advanced graphing calculators:

PLT SHH1: Spot Hand Held, first generation PET device with smaller, portrait oriented screen.
PLT FHH1: Fido Hand Held, first generation PET device with larger, landscape oriented screen
PLT SU1: Toto Hand Held, second generation PET device with large, color screen.

This PLT WC Wireless Card was developed for the PLT SU1 to establish a wireless connection to the outside world according to the IEEE 802.11b standard.

The PLT VIEW Presentation Adapter accommodates the PLT-WC Wireless Card, too.
