Preface

Introduction

The goal of this document, is to assemble all the information related to the Hewlett-Packard 71B handheld computer, including, computer, peripherals, modules, manuals, pamphlets, accessories, cases or any other product. Due to system limitations, this web article has been divided into four parts.

Disclaimer

It is my understanding that due to their age, the documents, softwares, ROM images, etc. referenced in this document may be shared for personal and non-commercial use, however, please contact me immediately if you are a copyright holder and my understanding is incorrect.

Acknowledgments
  • To Hewlett-Packard and the calculator development team for having created the HP-71B Hand Held Computer.
  • To Richard J. Nelson for his lifetime achievement in the calculator world, for creating calculator member clubs, journals (65 Notes, PPC/PPC-CA, PPC-CO, CHUU) and a place to share ideas & knowledge.
  • To Joseph K. Horn for his pioneering efforts, for sharing his knowledge in the 1980s Journals (PPC, CHHU & HPX) and for his recent works on the LEX files.
  • To Jakes Schwartz for his pioneering efforts and more importantly for his historian role by recording on tapes all HP events since its beginning.
  • To David G. Hicks for creating the hpmuseum.org site and in doing so, following in spirit what was started by Richard J. Nelson, a place to share ideas & knowledge.
  • To Jean-François Garnier for his Saturn processor emulator, his HP-71B emulator, his fantastic USB-to-HPIL PIL-Box, his extraction of the HP-71B Diagnostic ROM content and for putting together a new and updated version of the JPC-ROM.
  • To Christoph Gießelink for his HP-71B emulator, his suite of HP-IL device emulators and for integrating the PIL-Box into his emulators.
  • To Hans Brueggemann for his dedication to create the FRAM71 module and in doing so, pushing the HP-71B to it's extreme limits.
  • To Robert Prosperi and Dave Frederickson for their continued support, their dedication to the HP-71B and more importantly, for their friendship.
  • To all unnamed peoples who contribute in keeping the HP-71B alive ...
    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
