Toshiba introduced in 1979 with the LC-854WA a tiny combination of a basic calculator, stop watch and clock with alarm-time. It seems to be the successor of the Toshiba LC-834WA

LC-854WA_PCB.jpg (95064 Byte)Dismantling the LC-854WA reveals a conventional construction with a Toshiba T3821 integrated circuit soldered on a flexible printed circuit board (PCB). We know the T3821 from the Canon LC-61T introduced in 1979, too.

The LC-854WA was soon replaced with the LC-859WA sporting a traditional (portrait) housing.

Don't miss the LC-840WA introducing a full calendar function in a small calculator housing and the similar LC-853WA and LC-855W.
