Canon entered with the Palmtronic LC already in 1976 the market of LCD calculators and was about 6 month ahead the first Texas Instruments TI-1750

This solar-cell powered LS-6 followed the LC-6 and uses the same calculator chip as the second design of the TI-1766. The similar LS-10 sports a display with 10 digits capability.
