Corvus, the consumer division of the famous IC manufacturer MOSTEK, introduced with the Model 804 a basic four-function calculator with Memory, square-root and percent keys in a bright orange.

Dismantling this calculator manufactured in March 1975 reveals a simple construction based on the Mostek MK50112N calculator circuit and an additional driver for the red LED display.
