Brand: CASIO
Model: fx-3600PV
Type: Programmable scientific calculator
Picture: CASIO fx-3600P
Batteries: Colar cell & GR927
Lifetime: Introduced: 1989
Terminated: unknown
Notes: Successor of the CASIO fx-3600P. It is solar powered but also has a battery, handy if you want to keep your programs in the dark. Does not need a lot of light though, it even powered on under the scanner as seen on the picture above.

Quite a capable little machine, but don't expect a lot on its programmability. It is keystroke programmable with rudimentary flow control (conditionally jump to the start of the program). The maximum lengt of a program is a mere 38 steps.

There is room for two separate programs. Six separate memories accessible using the "Kin" and "Kout" keys, plus normal memory. BASE-n functions, integration and statistical calculations.

Many thanks to Richard Pilkington of the University of Salford for donating this calculator to the museum.
