41 voltage divider calculation
I made a small program for calculating voltage dividers. It allows the calculation of both resistors and the input and output voltage.
Code:
U_in --+        |        R1        |        +--- U_out        |        R2        | GND ---+--- GND

The program works similar to the TVM program on the advantage module: It starts with displaying a menu
Code:
R1 R2  UI UO
which is mapped to the top row of keys (A/B/D/E). To enter a value for one of the four variables, simply type in the value and press the corresponding button. To calculate one of the four variables after entering values for the others, press the corresponding button without entering a value before. To show the menu again, press J. This will not work if any of the keys A,B,D,E or J has assigned functions, as the program uses the user mode for the "softkeys".
If any of the values should be changed, you do not need to re-enter all values - simply enter the new value followed by the appropriate softkey and then press the key for the desired variable again.

Please note that this program is made for ease of use and is certainly not the smallest possible.

Example 1: Calculate R1 if U_in is 10V, U_out should be 3V, and R2 is 5kOhm
Code:
Input       Output XEQ RDIV    R1 R2  UI UO (Menu) 10 D        U.IN=10.000 (Set U_in to 10V) 3 E         U.OUT=3.000 (Set U_out to 3V) 5 EEX 3 B   R2=5,000.000 (Set R2 to 5kOhm) J           R1 R2  UI UO (Menu, optional) A           R1=11,666.667 (Calculated optimal value for R1)

Example 2: Calculate U_out if U_in is 5V, R1 is 5kOhm and R2 is 10 kOhm. Same if input voltage is 10V.
Code:
Input       Output XEQ RDIV    R1 R2  UI UO (Menu) 5 D         U.IN=5.000 (Set U_in to 5V) 5 EEX 3 A   R1=5,000.000 (Set R1 to 5kOhm) 10 EEX 3 B  R2=10,000.000 (Set R2 to 10kOhm) J           R1 R2  UI UO (Menu, optional) E           U.OUT=3.333 (Calculated output voltage) 10 D        U.IN=10.000 (Set U_in to 10V) E           U.OUT=6.667 (new output voltage)

Example 3: Find a good resistor pair to divide 5V to 3.3V
Code:
Input       Output XEQ RDIV    R1 R2  UI UO (Menu) 5 D         U.IN=5.000 (Set U_in to 5V) 10 EEX 3 B  R2=10,000.000 (Set R2 to 10kOhm as a guess) 3.3 E       U.OUT=3.300 (Set U_out to 3.3V) A           R1=5,151.151 (Calculated optimal value for R1) 5.1 EEX 3 A R1=5,100.000 (as 5.1kOhm is the next standard value, select this as R1) E           U.OUT=3.311 (If the standard valued resistor is used, the voltage will be 3.311V which should be ok for most uses)

Here is the program. It has 77 steps in 22 registers and fits on one magnetic card, using both sides. It uses storage registers 01 to 04.
