Re: DM42 vs DM43S

As far as I'm concerns DM43 == WP43S. This is at a minimum two years from completion and very likely more than that.

Re: Why was Stainless Steel used for the DM42?

Why then do the stainless steel screws I use break far more readily that the plain steel ones? Stainless steel ones seem to break as easily as brass or even more easily. Stainless has other properties that make it difficult. It work hardens quickly and my previous employer had to press enclosures mu...

Re: 43S News

Re: Troubled waters

AFAIK (I'm no SW person) we will handle the 43S as far as possible like we handled the WP 34S . I.e. our code would be as public as the WP 34S code is. I'm not aware of any code from anybody else needed for the 43S yet. We'll need hardware support code and this would likely have come from DM. I dou...

Re: 43S News

... and it's even viable. :) Just for logarithmic fits you loose a digit more, meaning output of fit parameters will have a somewhat limited precision but sufficient for the real world by far. Is a size reduction possible for the fit equation? Split it over two lines? Rename a0 and a1 as a and b? O...

One small suggestion: show the equation underneath where it says "Power*", if there is room.
I like this suggestion.

Re: DM42 wins over WP34S in accuracy..

I willing to go way out on a limb here and state that if the Intel decimal library is more accurate than the 34S for any built in function, I'll attempt to fix the latter.
