DATAMATH CALCULATOR MUSEUM
With the TMS0102 Texas Instruments introduced end of the year 1971 the first available standard calculator building block on a chip. The chip containes 3520-bit read-only program memory, a 182-bit random-access memory and a decimal arithmetic logic unit as well as control, timing, and output decoders but no drivers for the display. This gives an overall complexity of roughly 5000 transistors.
Due to a flexible design concept with both programmable PLA and ROM techniques a lot of design variations appeared. These include two different types of the key-matrix, 8 or 10 digits of 7- or 8-segmented outputs. Even the style of the numbers 4,6 and 9 varied among the family members.
A typical calculator built around the TMS0102 family performs the four basic functions +,-,*,: with either Constant or Chain operation. The calculations are done on a floating decimal-point operation but the display of the results could be selected between the floating-point or a fixed-point format. The keyboard scanning, debouncing and encoding in performed inside the chip. The display outputs are fully decoded with a leading zero suppresion and multiplexed.
The family was later expanded with the TMS0123 design.
It took about a year till the first copy of the original design appeared. US based company Mostek introduced the MK5020P December, 1972.
The TMS0112 was produced in Japan by Toshiba, too.

|The Segment drivers A-H and the Decimal point are connected to a display in the pictured way.|
The keyboards of all calculators based on the TMS0102 family consist of a x/y-matrix connected to the digit driver outputs D1-D11 and the keymatrix inputs KN and KO. In the fixed-point output format mode the position of the decimal point is selcted with the KP input. The Constant/Chain switch is connected between D10-KQ.
Calculators based on the TMS0102 use all kinds of displays. Texas Instruments introduced together with the calculator chip two pre-configured LED-moduled (DIS40, DIS95) based on the TIL360 arrays ,the corresponding segment drivers (SN75491) and digit drivers (SN75492). Most designs make use of these parts.
