This Toshiba LC-838 started a long line of Metric Converter calculators based on Integrated Circuits (IC's) developed by Toshiba.
You are familiar with this calculator? The housing seems to be identical with the TI-1750 and was used once again with the LC-844WA.
we discover the internal construction of the LC-838 we feel immediately
familiar with it. The printed circuit board is once again manufactured by Sansuy
and even the battery holder is well known. Radio Shack sold an identical
calculator as statesman EC-9800.
In 1981 Toshiba introduced with the LC-848 the successor of this LC-838 in the sleeker housing of the LC-825.
Don't miss the some other Metric Converters like the Canon FC-42, FC-43, FC-52, the TI-1889 and the Converter.
