Instruments entered already in 1991 with the PS-6200
the market of Personal Organizers. The design of the PS-6200 was changed in 1992
slightly, please focus on the position of the Texas Instruments logo above the
Dismantling this PS-6200 manufactured in 1993 by Inventec Corporation in Malaysia reveals no surprises.
The printed circuit board (PCB) sports a very clean layout and we identify the major components immediately.
The hardware of this OEM product - an identical product was sold as Canon DM-4000 - is centered around a Toshiba TMP0210F Application Specific CPU based on the 8-bit Z80 core.
The data memory of the PS-6200 is specified with 32k Bytes and we located in this PS-6200 manufactured in May 1993 a Sharp LH52250 chip.
The display of the PS-6200 sports 3 lines with 18 characters, each (using a very compact 5*5 pixel font) plus some fifteen discrete indicators. The driver electronics for the display is based on a Toshiba T6A21 single-chip solution.
The direct successor of the PS-6200 could be found with the PS-6300.
