Tokyo Shibaura Electric Co., Ltd., better known as Toshiba - the official name since 1978 - introduced early in their history the Homeland brand.
This Homeland 8011 is a basic but very stylish calculator using a
green VF-Display (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) and a solid keyboard.
Unfortunately it lacks the memory known from the earlier Homeland 810.
Dismantling the Homeland 8011 reveals a TMS0855 single-chip calculator circuit similar to the one found in the rare TI-150. With the basic four functions, a [%] key and the sqr-function it found its way into most calculators of the Canon Palmtronic LD-80 series.
Later Homeland calculators switched to the TMS1000 Microcomputer family, don't miss the Homeland 8105 and 8109.
