Woodstock Low Power Connectivity Kit
Much time has passed since the "Woodstock Low Power" has become available. Many of you were waiting for the PC application for saving user programs and data and making firmware updates. Now this goal is nearly accomplished. I worked many hours and days for getting a simple but useful user interface:

"The Woodstock LP Connectivity Kit"

Here a first view:

The "Woodstock LP Connectivity kit" is not only an application for a once in a lifetime firmware update, but organizes all your user programs. You can write programs with a text editor and download it to the LP calculator or reverse. You also can remote control the calculator. If you press a button on the PC screen it will be executed on the real calculator and vice versa, the real calculator display will be shown on the PC screen.

There is also an "In Circuit Emulator" for all calculators, including Woodstock, Spice and the Classics (except HP-65) . Here you can do research and try to understand how the calculator works and how it calcualates. The ingenious code of the HP engineers of the golden calculator era will be executed in real time or in single steps in the LP hardware.

During HP calculator code research the actual disassembled codes and also the RAM registers can be shown in separate Windows.

I hope the work will be finished in a few weeks. Writing the manual will now become the remaining main task.


That's one small step for a man - one giant leap for mankind.
