keyboard design of the original Corvus 400 was
changed within a few months from white to brown function keys. We are not sure
if the changes of the LED display discovered with this Corvus 400 calculator
manufactured in December 1974 correlate to the keyboard colors. Everything else
seems to be identical to the first edition of the calculator, we still located a MK50280A single-chip calculator circuit and one digit driver circuit.

The later Corvus 400 makes use of the MK50282A calculator circuit instead the MK50280A chip. The differences are not yet discovered. Within some month the four unusual N-batteries were replaced with a standard 9V battery. Don't miss the Corvus 406.
