Founded in 1951, Texas Instruments engineered the world’s first transistor radio in 1954 and the first integrated circuit in 1958. This Dallas, Texas-based company went on to introduce the handheld calculator in 1967 and followed with several innovative scientific models. Their TI-30 scientific calculator has been a high school classroom fixture for more than four decades.
