Sparcom Cards
Message #1 Posted by Abraham L on 8 Feb 2008, 3:49 a.m.

Searched over the forums and internet but I couldn't find much so decided to ask here.

Can anyone give an overview of what the old Sparcom cards contained? Particularly the "EE REF Pac" and "EE Application Pac" cards. Are these related to the EEPro card/software?

And out of sheer curiosity, what's on the Games48 card?

From the back of a Sparcom box:

Electrical Engineering Pac "Over 300 equations in circuit elements, DC circuits, RL and RC circuits, RLC circuits, OpAmp circuits, solid state devices and more. Analysis sections include simple AC circuits, Fourier and Laplace transforms, ladder network analysis, and two-port networks."

Electrical Engineering Reference Pac "Turn your HP48GX/SX into an EE reference manual. Over 3000 entries from seven subject areas. Resistor color chart."

I don't have these cards and am not an EE, but I hope this helps a little.

Games48 "Tests of reflexes, thinking power and casino skills is all included in the Games48 Pac. Eleven games including: Blackjack, Diamonds, Keno, Poker, Reversi, Roulette, Slots, Skunk, and Sokoban."

I did recently obtain the General Chemistry Application Pack, and although I have only "played with it" a little so far, it seems pretty useful.

TI still distributes DaVinci EE*Pro (and ME*Pro) software for the TI-89; the EE*Pro guidebook can be downloaded from:

I may be wrong, but I think that Sparcom was related to DaVinci, and that EE*Pro was related to the old Sparcom EE cards
