The Omron 12SR inside


I opened this Omron 12SR just out of curiosity. The calculator is fully functional and needed no repair or cleaning.

The calculator can easily be opened by removing three screws.

The picture on the left shows the main board of the Omron 12SR calculator. The big chip together with the two smaller chips below is a three chipset calculator from MOSTEK.
The three identical lined up chips in the middle are vacuum fluorescent display drivers. The discrete components above these display drivers form a buck converter to generate the high voltage needed for the fluorescent display tube.

On the picture below the IC type numbers are readable.
