You are familiar with this MR411 produced by the former GDR based company RFT ? You are right, this is a perfect copy of the early Texas Instruments Datachron aka TI-1790 or the Toshiba LC-833WA. Read more about their calculator exports here.
|Compare the perfection of the copy of the internals with the attached pictures. You'll find the MR411 always on the left side of the pictures.|
|The MR411 uses the original Toshiba T3566 calculator chip found in the TI-1790 design|
|Later even this chip was a target of the eastern "copy cats" and the MR413 appeared.|
