"Empty" DM42 units

Post by Vitasam » Mon Oct 05, 2020 10:29 am

Hello,
as far as I remember some time ago there was a discussion about a kind of "empty" DM42 HW - without bootloader, firmware and keypad engraving, so one can buy for cheaper price for DIY purpose.

Did I miss something?

This has never been offered, and likely would not be unless you plan to order a large number of them. These devices do not come from the mfg. firm as generic and then outfitted with cosmetics for each model, they are built in each model configuration. It's possible you saw a post from someone asking if such a model is available and mis-remembered it as something that may be offered.

Thanks for clarifications! It is possible that I did remember it wrong.

Even I could imaging an emulator of famous Soviet RPN calculator MK61 to be running on an amazing HW as DM42 :)
