Swiss Micros and WP34s...

RE: Swiss Micros and WP34s...
Looking a bit closer to my DM16L, I think transfering something near to the WP 34S to SwissMicros' HW platform might be possible.
As always, the LCD is the crucial element. According to SwissMicros it features a dot matrix of 132 pixels horizontally times 16 pixels vertically. If we'd keep the numeric output at the bottom like in the WP 34S, and use a 5x9 pixel matrix for a digit in the mantissa and 4x7 for a digit in the exponent, then a 12digit signed mantissa plus a 3digit signed exponent are easily displayable with nice group spacing. The annunciators necessary take up to 45x5 pixels top right. That leaves 86x6 pixels for alphanumeric output top left  twice the space available on the HP30b. The Voyager keyboard offers two keys more than the HP30b, so there will be no major problem with the WP 34S keys. What do you think? d:)
