The ICC-141 utilizes small-scale integrated circuits, and a rather unique display system that looks like a LED (Light Emitting Diode)-based segmented- style display, but actually uses small incandescent lamps to light the segments. The machine is a general four-function machine, with a single memory register, that has various accumulation modes. The machine operates in fixed decimal point mode, with the decimal point location set by a slider switch that spans the length of the display. Positioning the decimal point is simply a matter of moving the slider to the desired position. This is similar to the decimal point selection method of early Sony calculators. This machine, and a two-memory register version, were sold in North America by Dictaphone under an OEM relationship with Sanyo.
