Tokyo Shibaura Electric Co., Ltd., better known as Toshiba - the official name since 1978 - introduced early in their history the Homeland brand. 

This Homeland 8102 is a typical Japanese calculator using a green VF-Display (Vacuum Fluorescent Display), a solid keyboard and a somewhat boring styling.

Dismantling the featured Homeland 8102 reveals a clean design centered around a Sharp LI2003 single-chip calculator circuit.
