Toshiba introduced in 1979 with the LC-854WA a tiny combination of a basic calculator, stop watch and clock with alarm-time. It seems to be the successor of the Toshiba LC-834WA.
the LC-854WA reveals a conventional construction with a Toshiba T3821 integrated
circuit soldered on a flexible printed circuit board (PCB). We know the T3821
from the Canon LC-61T introduced in 1979, too.
The LC-854WA was soon replaced with the LC-859WA sporting a traditional (portrait) housing.
Don't miss the LC-840WA introducing
a full calendar function in a small calculator housing and the similar
LC-853WA and LC-855W.
