This Toshiba SC-7500 added some statistical functions to Toshiba's first scientific calculator, the SC-7100 introduced already in 1975.
The SC-7500 is based on a Mitsubishi M58628-001 single-chip calculator circuit, known e.g. from the Radio Shack EC-495, in place of the Toshiba T3327 chip found in the SC-7100. Running Mike Sebastian's "Calculator forensics" gives for the SC-7500 with 9.003347136 a much better result than the SC-7100 with 9.148251 instead of the expected value close to 9.0000.
