K1-K4: Keyboard Matrix
SA-SG and SDP - display segments
COMMA1/2: display control (for thousands indication)
L1 - rounding/constant/sigma switch
SYN/R: looks like on-board oscillator
CP: unknown

Voltages are given for this example respective to GND
VDD  -9.5V
VGG -9V
VDISP -30V

Notes: Lacks input overflow suppression but has overflow recovery
Looks like it may be capable of driving 12+1 digits? (or D12 does not drive the display and D13 only drives a minus sign)
Any more info would be a help.
