Toshiba LC-838 started a long line of Metric Converter calculators based on
Integrated Circuits (IC's) developed by Toshiba. This LC-848 introduced in
1981 uses almost identical electronic in the sleeker housing of the LC-825.
Please notice the yellow filter of the LC-848 while e.g. the LC-825
II introduced in the same year sports already the transparent polarizing
filter resulting in a silver shining display.
Dismantling the LC-848 reveals a well common PCB (printed circuit board) technology with a well known single-chip calculator circuit T3808 manufactured by Toshiba.
