TI Solid State
Thermal Printer

The Texas Instruments Solid State Thermal Printer was a 32 character thermal paper printer (which of course, matched the screen output. These are a bit rare and I am pleased to have one in such good shape. This printer plugged straight into the the expansion slot of the console. It's print speed is about 30 characters per second and it does run very quiet.

This shot shows the thermal paper loaded and ready to go.

Here is roll of the special thermal paper, PHA1950.
