Info: Texas Instruments introduced in 1976 with the SR-60 their first high-end programmable desktop calculator. Priced at $1695 and with a footprint of roughly 17" by 14.5" (430 mm * 370 mm) the SR-60 resembled more a computer than a programmable calculator.
Based on the SR-52 and SR-56 series of programmable calculators, the SR-60 integrated a full-sized keyboard with 95 keys, a large alphanumeric display with 20 characters, a thermal dot-matrix printer with 20 characters and a magnetic card reader for saving and loading both programs and data.
One of the main advantages of the SR-60 is the huge memory for data and program, already the base model could hold 480 program steps and 40 memory registers. Two memory expansion modules were available, one implemented with just two small daughter boards holding 5 resp. 3 TMC0599 RAM chips accessible through a bottom panel in the housing. The second memory expansion, a huge printed circuit board (PCB) with a total of 27 TMC0599 RAM chips, was mounted below the keyboard next to the Main PCB.
A fully-optioned SR-60 could hold programs with a maximum of 5760 steps and 430 memory registers.
