This Toshiba BC-0811B combined the keyboard technology of the BC-0808B with the housing of the BC-0804B and started the era of basic calculators with a fully independant memory.
The BC-0811B seems to be one of the first portable calculators with an integrated memory, Texas Instruments followed in 1974 with the TI-2550. Inside the BC-0811B we discovered a Rockwell R15330PB calculator circuit manufactured in October, 1973.
