RE: [FRAM71] Pre-Production Batch
ow. good catch. manual changed accordingly by yours truly, see post #1.

it requires at least 30 or more seriously(!) interested pre-orders to economically justify another production run. so, there are no plans to do that until there are enough people banging at my door.

one more firmware spin is in planning to add a feature that i personally would really like to have on my FRAM71. however, i want to analyze the feasibility first before i disclose anything about that V600.

i'm not planning to do a hardware re-spin, as this would imply a somehow evolutionary step in terms of new features and consequently require specialized driver-support on the HP-71B side of things. take as an example the (still) experimental UART in FRAM71, where the response to my support request for writing a suitable driver in assembly was zilch- so, my understanding from that response (or the lack thereof) is that the assembly language legacy for a vintage platform like the HP-71B is practically no longer existent and hence renders such project ideas basically stillborn, imho.

as for the design files, let me meditate a little longer about this. i have a bit of a hard time (call me sentimental, if you wish) to "simply let go" the fruits of 5 years effort that brought quite an amount of b,s&t besides the obvious(!) fun.
so, bear with me for now.
