TI-30X IIS was manufactured by
Kinpo Electronics, Inc. for the retailer Target. It was released for the
Back-to-School 2011 campaign together
with its maroon,
blue siblings and the TI-84 Plus Silver
Edition in the colors of pink, blue and black.
Disassembling this model of the TI-30X IIS manufactured in March 2011 reveals a well known internal construction. We discovered already in 2004 with Inventec Shanghai, Kinpo Electronics, Inc. and Nam Tai Electronics, Inc. three different contract manufacturers for the TI-30X IIS.
This design was used in Summer 2011 by two retailers: Target and Fred Meyer. In Summer 2012 both Meijer and Shopko added this design to their selection.
In Summer 2013 four retailers used the design: Fred Meyer, Meijer, Shopko and Target (in alphabetical order) and Underwood Distributing Co. featured both an orange and lime-green TI-30X IIS it in Summer 2023.
