(https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-14270-post-126292.html#pid126292) This inspired me to recreate it by using the DM-42P (bet...

Re: DM1X/DM1XL Introduction Dates & Board Revisions

Hi, got curious and took a closer look at the mainboard rev. 8 of the DM1XL ;) . The additional chip for the real-time-clock ( RTC ) is IC3 near the buzzer / above the MCU. It is a PCF8563 (https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/data-sheet/PCF8563.pdf), supports timer + clock functions, even a countdown timer ...

Re: [DM10L] The wait is over!

Addendum: the key combinations for showing firmware, date&time, toggling fonts or between 12 /48 MHz are the same as with other DM1xL (https://www.swissmicros.com/instructions.php section "Key Combinations"). Since the DM10L's layout hosts no keys A to E one has to use the keys at the ...
