The Toshiba T3189 calculator circuit known from the BC-8012 appeared with the BC-815 in the year 1975 again. 

Dismantling the BC-815 reveals indeed a printed circuit board named "BC-8012". 

Fellow collectors: If you know why the Toshiba T3189 seems to sport in 1975 a 3-key memory, drop me a line.
