The Canon Canola MD 810 was introduced already in 1977 together with its pocket sized sibling MULTI 8 and features a two-line display, too.
The lower display is the usual working display while the upper line shows the
memory content or intermediate results.
The innovative electronics inside the MD 810 is based on the TMS1070, a member of the TMS1000 Microcomputer family designed to directly interface with low-voltage VFDs up to 35 Volts. The TMC1079 found inside the MD 810 traces back to the chip used with the TI-2550-II.
