The Canon Canola L1210 followed the L121F and added just the square-root function.
From the technical view the L1210 is from almost identical with the L121F, it uses again the TMS0201 Data Chip but combines it with the TMS0321 ROM Chip instead a TMS0302 ROM Chip to include the square-root function.
The Hitachi display module is very similar to the Panaplex™ manufactured by
Burroughs found in the TI desktop calculators.
The next desktop calculator in Canon's line was the L800 sporting the TMS0105 single-chip calculator chip.
The beautiful styling of the housing was continued with the Canola F-11 statistical desktop calculator and the Canola L1632.
