I received today a box from Gemany with some interesting calculators sold in Germany. One of them might interest you:

1) It uses RPN

2) It is Scientific

3) It has a wonderful RED LED display

4) It was made in Germany

Who is the first one to identify this cutie?


Is it one of the two RPN Privileg models? Those things are sleek and solid. They have the worlds best battery doors too.

If not; we have to talk. I have a first-born child to trade you for that calc.

No, it is NOT from Privileg.

The SR54NC was to my knowledge manufactured Overseas.


Not from Privileg...

Later more!

Cheers, Joerg

Is it a German brand ?


What chipset does it use ?

Not Mostek, not National ;-))


MOS MPS7561 ?

Does East Germany count?

How about the Konkret 600 manufactured in Thüringen.

Not Commodore - Russian chips ;-))


Sure - the label reads:

Made in GDR, abbreviation for German Democratic Republic!



Robotron brand, perhaps? I've seen that brand name on some DDR home computers, read somewhere they made calculators too.

konkret 600 = VEB Roehrenwerk Muehlhausen, Kombinat Mikroelektronik,

Viele Gruesse,

Looks a lot like the Elektronika B3-19M

Looks a lot like the Elektronika B3-19M

Because it is the same calculator, just with different markings.
Designed in Kiev, USSR, produced in Thuringen, DDR.

Designed in Kiev, USSR, produced in Thuringen, DDR.

Almost ;-)

Either designed in Kiev, USSR, produced in Mühlhausen, GDR,

or designed in Kiev, CCCP, produced in Mühlhausen, DDR,

or designed in the Ukraine, USSR, produced in Thüringen, GDR,

or one more (trivial) permutation.
