Production of the BA-35 Student Business Analyst shifted in 1985 from Taiwan to both the US and Italy. The featured BA-35 Student Business Analyst was manufactured in August 1988 in Italy, just a few month before the redesigned BA-35 Business Analyst was introduced.

The picture on the right gives you an idea about the internal construction of the calculator. The flexible printed circuit board (PCB) forms one half of the keys, holds the calculator chip and connects to the LCD. Even the two coin batteries are connected directly with two small PCB parts. Find a similar construction with the TI-52. The BA-35 was manufactured both in Italy and the USA, we noticed no differences between them.
The TP0456 / CD4571 calculator circuit is encapsulated in a traditional Dual-Inline Plastic package and soldered with bented pins on the PCB.
