Toshiba introduced with the BC-8016 one of the first calculators operating from only one AA-sized battery.
the BC-8016 reveals a typical Toshiba design centered around the T3332
singe-chip calculator circuit. It is obvious that power supply issues were not
easy with this calculator, we notice a lot of huge capacitors on the printed
circuit board (PCB).
An identical PCB was later used with both the Homeland 8006 and the MBO Conti 10.
