black colored TI-30 Galaxy was manufactured
in Italy and followed the off-white design introduced one year earlier.
Dismantling this TI-30 Galaxy manufactured in September 1989 reveals no surprises, it is identical with its predecessor.
The two-sided flexible printed circuit board (PCB) of the featured calculator is assembled with a Texas Instruments CD4808 calculator chip, a step backwards compared with the original design of the TI-30 Galaxy introduced in 1984.
A similar coloring scheme could be found on the TI-52.
