This Toshiba BC-8018 carries a famous name but is otherwise not very exciting.
Dismantling the BC-8018 reveals a printed circuit board (PCB)
borrowed from the BC-8111 but populated with a
NEC uPD1802C calculator chip. The more obvious difference between the
calculators is the missing 4-key memory in the upper row of the keyboard.
The later BC-8018B uses the TMS1045 single-chip calculator circuit manufactured by Texas Instruments.
