Canon introduced with the FP-11P already in 1983 a compact and powerful combination of a Scientific Statistical calculator, some programmability and a small printer. A close relative to the FP-11P was introduced with the Financial Printer using almost identical electronics. 

From the technical view the FP-11P is very similar to the TI-45 Micro Scientific Printer and BA-45 Micro Business Manager. They use identical printers manufactured by Shinshu Seiki Co, Ltd. - better know under the EPSON brand - and the same printer driver electronics developed by Toshiba. The calculator circuit is very similar to the one found in the TI-66 Programmable.

The paper used with this printer (PMF05228 1-1/2" wide and 14 Feet  length) is still available here.
