EL-8153_PCB.jpg (49084 Byte)The Sharp EL-8153 combines a basic four-banger calculator with a sleek design and a modern membrane keyboard. The keyboard is made of a sandwich of a printed circuit board (PCB), a thin foil as spacer and metal traces. Touching one of the membrane keys pushes a metal trace against the PCB and creates a conductive connection.

Don't miss the EL-8152 in housing of only 0.06" or 1.6mm thickness.
