This Toshiba SLC-8200 was introduced together with the SLC-8100 and followed the legendary SLC-8300. It was introduced in the year 1978 and predates even the TI-25.

The calculator chip located with the SLC-8200 was manufactured by NEC in Japan and running Mike Sebastian's calculator forensics reveals with 8.99844408 a rather disappointing result. Nevertheless a huge improvement compared to the result of 8.9789682 calculated by Toshiba's T3636 design located in the SLC-8300.
