FC-43_IC.jpg (46583 Byte)The Canon FC-43 continued a long line of Metric Converter calculators based on Integrated Circuits (IC's) developed by Toshiba. The first known product with a LC-display is the Toshiba LC-838. Canon introduced already in 1974 with the FC-80 their first metric conversion calculator using a LED display before introducing the FC-42 with a LC-display, too.

The solar powered FC-43S seems to use a calculator chip from a different supplier.
