Canon FC-42 started with its "sibbling" Toshiba LC-838 started a long line of Metric Converter calculators based on
Integrated Circuits (IC's) developed by Toshiba. Canon
introduced already in 1974 with the FC-80 their first
metric conversion product with a LED display based on a calculator chip
developed by Hitachi.
This unique FC-82 shares its novel two-line display with the MD-82 introduced in the same time frame. The second line displays either the contents of the memory or the converted value.
