Canon entered with the Palmtronic LC already in 1976 the market of LCD calculators and was about 6 month ahead the first Texas Instruments TI-1750.
beautiful Palmtronic LC-6 gives once again easy access to the coin shaped
battery through a front door. In a direct comparison with the earlier LC-5
the screws were avoided and the cover opens by turning it some degrees counter
The printed circuit board (PCB) of the Palmtronic LC-6 makes still use of the Toshiba T3707 single-chip calculator circuit. Don't miss the Toshiba LC-851 introducing the COB (chip-on-board) technology in a credit card sized calculator.
Don't miss its sibling card quartz LC-61T with integrated alarm clock and the LC-61.
The next step in miniaturization could be found with the wonderful Palmtronic LC-7.
