The Toshiba LC-838 started a long line of Metric Converter calculators based on Integrated Circuits (IC's) developed by Toshiba. This LC-848 introduced in 1981 uses almost identical electronic in the sleeker housing of the LC-825. Please notice the yellow filter of the LC-848 while e.g. the LC-825 II introduced in the same year sports already the transparent polarizing filter resulting in a silver shining display.

Dismantling the LC-848 reveals a well common PCB (printed circuit board) technology with a well known single-chip calculator circuit T3808 manufactured by Toshiba.
