DM41X Firmware V2.0

Post by grsbanks » Wed Oct 14, 2020 9:16 pm

The DM41X firmware is no longer in Beta!

Production units shipped as of September 28th had firmware V2.0 and this is now being released to the general public.

There are in fact very few changes compared to the final V1.15 beta firmware, and they are related to the help system.

Firstly, while the beta firmware looks for a file called 41.html in the HELP/ directory, version 2.0 onwards looks for a file called 41x.html.

Secondly, as was stated in the latest DM42 and DMCP firmware update announcement, DMCP now supports multiple, linked help files. Taking advantage of this, there is now a new set of help files available at:

https://technical.swissmicros.com/dm41x ... 201014.zip

The firmware file is available in the new location for DM41X firmware: https://technical.swissmicros.com/dm41x/firmware/

The manual for the DM41X including update instructions can be found here: https://technical.swissmicros.com/dm41x ... er_manual/

SHA1 checksum:

Thanks for the updated help !

A minor comment related to the manual, in the section 6.2.3. Load RAW Program, it says "ENTER to load the selected state file"instead of "ENTER to load the selected program file"

Well.
My DM41X has DMCP 3.20 and DM41X v2.0, so no need to flash again. Isn't it?

Thank you for the new firmware.

Good catch, thanks for that. I've passed it on.

Latest update installed into my beta unit - just as smooth as ever. Working fine for me.

Thanks a million, SM, for this excellent machine, and this tremendous support!

The manual for the DM41X including update instructions can be found here: https://technical.swissmicros.com/dm41x ... er_manual/
About keyboard overlays, the manual says
2.4. Keyboard Overlays
Extruded rim of the DM41X allows the use of keyboard overlays.

Template for the keyboard overlay with dimensions can be found at http://technical.swissmicros.com/files/ ... y_DM42.PDF
but the link says "404". Typo?

Mind you, I don't have a 41X yet - still getting stuff for it together. Old habit - wrote my first 41C user code program from scraps of pre-release info but waited weeks to transit Singapore airport and get one duty-free to key it into. So for the moment just sayin'. Chinese guy sitting next to me on flight out of Singapore asked if he could have a look at it. Played with it for a while and then handed it back saying, "This calculator is going to go a long way." Yep, including a stopover in Switzerland for a change of clothes 40 years later.

Etc: If a calculator has equals, why buy one unless it's the cheapest?

Yup, a typo on the page. The actual link you want is https://technical.swissmicros.com/graph ... y_DM42.PDF

I'll get David to fix the manual page.
