six years after introduction of the original TI-82
the calculator received a restyling to match with the current design line. The TI-82 offers a basic set of graphing tools for
mathematics and science coursework. The TI-82 is together with the TI-83
the predecessor of the upgradeable
From a technical point of view resembles this TI-82 manufactured in 2000 more or less the original design introduced in 1993. The printed circuit board (PCB) looks very similiar to the first design and makes use of the same components:
|• Z-80 microprocessor
• Toshiba TC14L010 ASIC with glue logic
• Sharp LH531©1995 - ROM for internal program storage
• Samsung KM62256 - 32k Bytes S-RAM for user program and data
Toshiba T6A04A - display driver
glue logic of the TI-82 is integrated into a Toshiba TC14L010 ASIC, known
the first edition of the TI-82.
A deeper exploration of the display board shows the unbelievable high density of electrical connections between the Toshiba T6A04A display controller and the graphics screen.
A serial port of the calculators allows the connection to the Calculator-Based Laboratory system CBL, its successor CBL 2, the Calculator-Based Ranger CBR and its successor CBR 2.
In 2001 another styling variation appeared, don't miss the TI-82 Parcus.
