IC-2006_PCB.jpg (86785 Byte)Compared with the IC-2009 introduced few month earlier this calculator is much smaller. It is based on an earlier MOSTEK calculator device instead the chips manufactured by Texas Instruments found in the other kit calculators. Instead of the usual magnifier lenses found on other battery operated calculators the IC-2006 uses three 3-digit modules with 1/8 inch of height.

The calculator was available till May 1974, the priced dropped already down to $59.95.
