The TI-5032 was the first battery operated printing desktop calculators introduced by Texas Instruments.
The design fits neatly to the other desktop calculators of the time:
|• TI-5008 Pocket-sized, thermal printing
• TI-5010 Small-sized, standard paper
• TI-5032 Desktop-sized, battery option
• TI-5130 10-digits, standard paper
• TI-5142-III 12-digits, standard paper
• TI-5020 Non-printing, solar powered
The housing and internal construction of the original TI-5032 was used with a complete line of very similar calculators:
|1983||Mitsubishi M58349P||10 digits|
|TI-5030 II||1984||Mitsubishi M58345AP||12 digits|
|TI-5035||1985||Mitsubishi M58347P||12 digits|
The successful TI-5032 line was manufactured from 1983 till 1988 when the TI-5029
and TI-5033 were introduced.
In the year 1991 the design was changed but the idea kept. View the later TI-5032 here.
