Thanks! I really loved my Tandy PC-1 (Sharp PC 1211) way back when. Although its BASIC was slow and did not have full string processing it had a really useful feature of overlapping arrays much like the HP-32s series does. That is A(x+1) = B(x) = C(x-1), etc.

Katie,

I share your love for the Sharp PC-1211. I remember the first time I saw it was at the home of Jack Stout in a PPC conference in Chicago. Over the years I bought and sold a few units. Recently, I got a few units from TAS.

I posted on a separate message a request for the pdf file for the manual. I DO have a printed manual, but would like to find a pdf version.

I also loved my Sharp PC-1211 and wrote more than a hundred novel, quality programs for it in its time.

I guess you've already seen it but for those people who don't and might be interested, here is the link to a full-fledged 12-page article I wrote a few years ago extensively reviewing the Sharp PC-1211, including five of my own programs, photographs, and also a detailed comparison vs. its great contemporary, the HP-41C, featuring several equivalent sample programs in both RPN and Sharp-1211's own BASIC programming language:

Sharp produced a number of remarkable models. Later models such as PC-1251 and PC-1500 can be programmed in machine language. They were very popular in Hong Kong.


#38

And don't forget the last of the series, PC-1600, had dual processors (the pc-1500 processor and a Z-80 processor), had two memory slots, RS-232 interface, and an analog port.

The one I have on my desk is fully fitted with a 32K and 256K memory cards giving 77K for programs and 220K ram disk file space. Pretty amazing for a handheld computer of that day.

Hi Bill

Do you know if it is possible to use both processors at the same time?

This would make the PC1600 probably the first dual-processor handheld.

#41

That's the first I've heard of it having a third processor. I wonder what the LU57813P does? Assuming that it's really a processor, maybe it manages the display or something.

#42

Hi Peter,

I don't think you can use both processors at the same time. You can switch back and forth between them.

Bill


#43

One of the CPUs is supposed to provide backward compatibility with PC-1500. Both CPUs don't work in tandem with each other.

#44

Thanks.

It would have been interesting to use both at the same time, placing a worker thread in the background for one processor and the other still being available for foreground processing.

The third processor is - as far as I know - only there to manage the other two.

Regards
Peter

Yes, PC-1600 is a great machine in terms of functionality and expandability. Unfortunately, it never arrived in Hong Kong. I had to buy one from TAS!

Another nice model that was once available in Hong Kong is PC-E500S. It has a lot of built-in BASIC programs categorised as "engineering software". I think it's still available somewhere (except auction sites) on earth.

Of course, machine language programming is possible on PC-E500S. You can easily find related information on the web.

The link to the 1211's manual is broken!!!

I tried the site for Sharp manual , but they did not have documentation for the PC-1211.

:-(


#51

How about here.


#52

Very impressive Katie! I sent them a request for a permission to download the file via FaceBook.

happy Thanksgiving!

For everyone here that likes these sharp pocket computers, there is a nice emulator for a lot of the models:

POCKEMUL

The latest version 0.93 includes a Beta version of the PC-1600 plus you can emulate a lot of the accessories such as printers, tape recorders, memory modules. Please note that it's not a 1.0 product level, so be prepared for some quirks along the way. But still fun to play with.

Bill


#54

Thanks for the link Bill. It's nice to have access to newer versions of these emulators.

#55

And what about these models:

Sharp PC-G850
Sharp PC-G830

Does someone have information (brochure, manual) about this C pocket computers?

Thanks,

Miguel

Thanks a lot, Gene, much appreciated. I own all three items in mint condition, as well as the PC-1211 brochure in Spanish language.

Great to see them, if you've got more please share.

Best regards from V.

That was all, sad to say.


But, what do you think of the EL-5100 ?

I know it is special based upon its age / position, but function wise, it has seemed a bit lacking in capabilities to me ?

Well, I didn't get it at the time it was released but actually a few years ago as a birthday present from a friend so I haven't used it at all, I'm just collecting it. That said, I think it's absolutely awesome for its time and further I'll state that from a purely aesthetic point of view it's one of the most beautiful calculators in history.

No pictures can make it justice no matter how good, you just have to hold it in your hands to be enthralled by its sheer beauty and luxury feel. Absolutely gorgeous !

Best regards from V.

These were beautiful designs - in an age before plastic was king ...

Indeed, timeless beauties, and they even had an ENTER key! :-)

I've just added a Sharp set to my museum: SHARPs I have quite a few more - will have to upload them. Keith
