LC-34_PCB.jpg (37857 Byte)This Canon LC-34 looks different to its predecessor LC-33 and makes use of a novel manufacturing technology. Dismantling the calculator reveals once again a clever usage of flexible circuit boards. The LC-display and the keyboard are attached direct to a very thin and flexible foil with printed traces. 

The sibling LC-44 changed the design slightly but sports another calculator brain, the LC-34T added both a watch and alarm clock into a very similar housing.
