This Radio Shack EC-496 is an OEM product of the APF Mark 8501 and uses the first single-chip scientifical calculator IC developed by Toshiba. The orginal design with this chip was introduced already in 1977 with the Toshiba SLC-8300.
Don't miss the Canon F-62, probably a sibbling of the APF Mark 8601.
