Hardware spec for DM-16L?

Post by cappy » Mon Oct 12, 2020 12:45 pm

I’m considering replacing my HP-16C with a 16L
but can’t find the hardware spec on the SM site, after the reorg.
How much memory does it have? Does it also have USB connectivity like the DM-42?

Would someone post side-by side pictures with a 16C, I eoukd like to see the size comparisons and keyboard layout?

Thanks

All the SwissMicros Voyager units have USB connectivity but not the same as the DM41X/DM42.

They have a Silicon Labs USB to serial converter built in so you'll need the Silicon Labs drivers for most operating systems.

More info here: https://technical.swissmicros.com/manua ... _v1.63.pdf

The hardware is almost identical in size to the original HP-16C.

The key layout and specs of the DM16L are identical to the HP-16C (it's running the HP ROM in an emulator) so the DM16L behaves exactly like the HP-16C, except much faster!
