This huge desktop printing calculator is a sibbling of the neat TI-5220 based one the earlier TI-5040.
the TI-5225 reveals some known components and a typical Texas Instruments
construction. The keyboard module is similiar to the TI-3500
introduced already in 1972 and the printer is borrowed from the PC-100
printing cradle sold together with the SR-52.
The printed circuit board (PCB) makes use of two enhanced devices of the famous TMS1000 Microcomputer family. We know similiar chips already from the related TI-5220, a sibbling of the TI-5040. PC-100 printing cradle sold together with the SR-52 and the TMC0261 of the TI-5040.
An enhanced version of the TI-5225 was introduced with the odd TI-5230.
The thermal paper used with this printer (TP-30250 2-1/2" wide and 14 Feet length) was discontinued long time ago. In 2008 Appleton (Appleton, WI) manufactured with the Alpha 800-2.4 paper still a compatible paper.
