wp34s crystal kits -- don't worry


For those of you who requested crystal and cap kits from me for your wp34s calculators, don't worry. I have your requests. I'm waiting for crystals to arrive from China and it seems like they're taking their dear sweet time about it.

If you're going to do that, perhaps spending some time with the question of how to fasten down the board after swapping it would be a good idea. Would substituting the LCD for something more dotmatrixy be possible?

I'm afraid it would not. The processor can drive the number of graphic elements as given on the present LCD, definitively not a single pixel more. For more, another architecture is required ... -> 43S.

I'm not thinking of a complete board swap, just an add-on board with a few components. Walter has already explained that we will not be able to add a substantially better display without an embedded controller which would demand a larger battery which ...
