BC-8018_PCB.jpg (38345 Byte)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.
