This Toshiba BC-8111B followed the BC-8111 and carries a famous name but is otherwise not very exciting. The only link to the wonderful BC-0802 is the usage of a calculator chip manufactured by Texas Instruments. The TMS1045 found inside this BC-8111B is based on the TMS1000 Microcomputer family.
We know the chip already from the Canon Canola L813 sporting less functions and the Toshiba BC-8112SL wiring more keys.
A similar calculator was sold with the BC-8018B.
The design of the BC-8111B with its black, blue and red keys traces back to the BC-819 introduced already in 1976.
