Re: Running an HP 50g program on the DM42

Many, many years ago while at university, I made extra money as a machinist creating custom parts for hydraulic presses that made synthetic diamonds. Precision was everything, so all calibrations were made using Gauge Blocks . The key to a precise measurement was to use the fewest number of gauge st...

Re: DM42 can FW not be updated from built-in memory? (kann kein FW-Update vom eingebauten Datenträger durchführen)

Godwin,

There might be a real issue here. I had the exact same "freezing" problem updating my production DM42 from 3.11 to 3.12. I thought nothing of it and used dm_tool to manually flash the combined binary. I did not have any issues updating my two beta units from flash.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

See this message above (https://forum.swissmicros.com/viewtopic.php?p=9071#p9049) However, there are multiple benchmarks available so we need to get clarification from Mark regarding which benchmark it is that he used. Sorry not to be more specific about which BENCH I was using. Here's the code I'm...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

I believe the compiler optimizations are still causing problems. After upgrading one of my beta DM42s (00043) and my production DM42 (00357), my first thought was to compare them to the remaining beta unit (00065) to verify the predicted 5% speed improvement. I ran 1000 BENCH side-by-side with a 3.9...

Now for a few quick benchmarks between beta 00065 and 00043.
Running 10,000 iterations of BENCH takes an identical 1'49" between 3.5 and 3.7.1.

Excellent!

Re: DM42 License Statement

Thanks for this update Michael, good news that the refactoring/redesign is completed! I suspect the instructions you posted will work as stated once the DMCP layer has been installed, but with the prior style f/w, nothing is automatically detected, at least on my machine (production unit with v3.5 ...

Re: Free42 POSA issue

I already saw the update in the Apple store. That’s a quick turnaround time. I was under the impression that it took months to get updates released with Apple. No, it was never *that* bad. When I first released Free42 for iOS, in 2009, it took two weeks. Then they got it down to one week, and latel...
