The SR-11 calculator added a constant-switch and PI to the wedge shaped predecessor SR-10. More notable was the new layout of the keyboard, with the SR-11 Texas Instruments introduced the smaller keys known from todays calculators. Compared to later models the keyboard was colorful arranged, the last calculator with blue and orange keys was the SR-50.
inside view of the SR-10 and its successor SR-11 look very similar, compare them
The display of this early SR-11 makes use of two LED-modules (Light Emitting Devices) known already from the Datamath calculator, the later SR-11 changed the construction to 12 discrete LED-modules.
Recently a SR-11 manufactured in Spain was discovered.
It took 12 years and a similar scientific calculator with just the 1/x, x2, sqr(x) and PI keys appeared, don't miss the rare TI-18 SLR.
