Within the Majestic series Texas Instruments started with the Business Analyst to introduce always a financial counterpart to the scientific calculator. The BA-35 Student Business Analyst is similar to the Business Analyst-II but removes some Capital Budgeting and Bonds functions.

TI-StudentBA_PCB.jpg (63720 Byte)Dismantling the BA-35 Student Business Analyst reveals a printed circuit board (PCB) known from e.g. the TI-35 but sports the CD4571 C-MOS single-chip calculator circuit. The TP0456 architecture succeeds the TP0320 family and is still based on the famous TMS1000 Microcomputer family

In 1984 the era of the slimline calculators was over and Texas Instruments introduced a family of four calculators manufactured in Taiwan:

TI-30 III
TI-35 II
BA-II
BA-35



The BA-35 Student Business Analyst is featured in the Texas Instruments Incorporated leaflet CL-199M dated 1983.
