Table of HP48 serial numbers and ROM versions

Posted by megarat on 13 Apr 2010, 12:22 p.m.

I'm compiling serial number and ROM information of HP48 calculators with the intent of determining their relationship. The table is below, and the relationship is pretty apparent.

I've also parsed the information from the serial number (country, week, year) to make it slightly more human-readable. And heck, it might come in handy if you want to load this into your favorite data-mining program or something.

Thanks to all who have submitted their information. Additional contributions would be appreciated, so feel free to join in by contacting me through the web site, especially if your calculator helps define the boundary conditions (i.e., where the ROM versions change).

For convenience, here's a quick primer on checking your version number (the process is model-dependent):

-- 48g family: type the command 'VERSION'

-- 48s family: hold ON and D simultaneously; release D; then release ON; then hit backspace, then hit EVAL.

Behold, the table:
