The IME 26 was a lower-cost follow-on
to the IME 84 and
first-generation electronic calculators from the Italian calculator
manufacturer IME (Industria Macchine Elettroniche). The 26 utilizes
the same transistorized logic and magnetic core memory architecture as its predecessors. The machine
has twelve digits of capacity, with adjustable fixed decimal point logic.
It provides the four basic math functions, and a single accumulating memory
register. The machine appears to have been introduced sometime in the
1967 to 1968 timeframe, though at this time the timing is unsure.
