The TI-30Xa SOLAR added to the earlier TI-30X SOLAR a Constant-key (above the HYP-key). Within two years the housing got a smoother design. View the new TI-30Xa Solar here.
The internal construction of the TI-30Xa SOLAR is identical with the original TI-30X SOLAR but instead of a Toshiba T6M38 single-chip calculator circuit it makes use of the T6M79.

A more robust version was introduced with the TI-30Xa SE (School Edition).
