This is one of a series of machines for different purposes. The journal  "Electronics", for December 6, 1971, on their introduction, said of this  series - 
"Each machine is "microprogramed" with MOS/LSI logic  specifically for each application. ROMs produced by Texas Instruments and AMI  to Compucorp specs control the keyboard functions pre-programed by the  manufacturer. Groups of calculators bearing family names such  as Statistician, Scientist, Accountant, and Treasurer, are thus tailored to  the user."

Inside Sumlock-Compucorp  324G

Here the keyboard and assembly of circuit boards has been removed from the casing. The circuit boards plug into the assembly of sockets, which acts as a backplane and also mounts the display.

The circuit boards have been unplugged from the socket assembly to reveal the number of large integrated circuits required at this time to produce a scientific programmable calculator.
