|Below are the specifications for the TI-86 Graphing Calculator.|
The TI-86 is the successor to the TI-85, gaining native assembly execution, a stylish casing, and more advanced options. It also has over 90kb of RAM to play with, really helping with the TI-85's limitation.
Checking ROM Version
If you would like to see which ROM chip your calculator came with, press the following key sequence:
[MODE] [Alpha] [S]
There are several different ROM versions for the TI-86, below is a list of them:
1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6
The TI-86 supports TI-BASIC, though before execution, it compiles the code, and checks for errors, as long as the code has been edited. Otherwise it goes right into running the program. Assembly can be programmed with out the use of hacks, like on previous versions of calcultors. Execute an assembly program by using the asm( command from the catalog.
