RE: SwissMicros: it's time for the DM16L
The DMxxL display seems to feature only 110 pixels horizontally. Can anybody confirm or deny?

It looks more like 96 pixels (DM-41L, 12 Characters in alpha register, each (5+3) pixels wide.)

RE: SwissMicros: it's time for the DM16L
Hmmh. My DM16L displays up to 10 digits plus a sign. Each digit takes 5 horizontal pixels. The inter-digit interval looks like 7 pixels. I can't see the left and right edges of the dot matrix. Assuming constant intervals, this would result in 5 7 + 11 *, i.e. 132 pixels maximum. If the dot matrix would end with the rightmost digit, it would be 125 pixels wide. The 110 pixels I claimed earlier were determined by analysing the aspect ratio of the DM41L display on Swissmicros' photograph. I doubt, however, they use different LCDs in their larger calculators. Strange.

RE: SwissMicros: it's time for the DM16L
Just received my DM16L.

Build quality is OK (actually better than OK!).
Well, somewhat stiff keyboard and slightly thin blue printing, but that's nothing to worry about.

A nice piece to play with during my christmas days off from work.
It's going to be fun!!!

Thanks, SwissMicros!
