Texas Instruments entered already in 1991 with the PS-6200 Organiser the market of Personal Organizers in Europe. In the United States an almost identical product was sold as PS-6200 Organizer.

Dismantling this PS-6200 manufactured in 1992 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 July 1992 a Suwa Seikosha SRM20256 chip. 

PS-6200UK_DISP.jpg (80681 Byte)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 identicators. 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.
