Has there been any more development towards a "phoenix 35sx" replacement board for the hp35s?


Re: phoenix 35sx happenings? - Walter B - 10-31-2011

Any *more* ??


Re: phoenix 35sx happenings? - Martin Pinckney - 10-31-2011

I completely missed this. And maybe this.

Long time no see. All quiet at the western front AFAIK.

This raises an interesting question. *If* such a kit were to be created to, say, add IR or a hard connection port (at minimum), would NCEES still allow the calculator on the FE and PE exams?

It seems that if you get a bunch of engineers together with a common goal of removing the entire set of test questions, it would be a practice that would surely get the calculator banned. It is my understanding that is the sole reason there does not exist such a port on this model.

Only if the proctors did not notice the calculator had been modified.

You made me just recall my proposal for the PHOENIX name, which, written backwards, is "XI neo HP"; meaning "new generation HP 11".

Such a calculator would already be banned, i.e., the 35s is allowed, not some modified device. Attempting to use such a device would violate their rules and subject you to their penalties.

I don't really agree with the NCEES calculator policy. Someone could do just as you postulate, and get away with it, but I could not use a real 15c (or 15c LE) because it is not on their list.
