Anyone have info on this company? Makes one of the 32K RAMs in my 71B service machine.

Thanks.

If interested, I have started an HP71 group on FB here:

HHPC had its offices in Charlotte, NC, for many years. I am not sure if they still do. Jim De Arras, who is the genius behind HHPC products, lives in Richmond, VA. We were friends since we were PPC members. He was my best man in my first wedding. I had the privilege of buying his house in 1989 and inheriting the workshop & benches where he invented some of the cool early HHPC products. I used these benches to write many programming books!! :-)

In the middle 90s, HHPC underwent some big restructuring (brought on by the company's partners who also ran the Food Lion grocery stores), reducing Jim's role in the company. Due to my divorce in these same years, I lost contact with him. I did contact him in 1999 for a possible job with his small consulting firm. He was not into calculators anymore (at least that was the impression I got). I ended up working for Cisco who bought a company in town.

You can find Jim on Facebook.

No info, regrettably, but a comment: great company. I do have one of their 128 Kb RAM modules on my physical HP-71B and it runs perfectly so far, after nearly 30 years.

This is it:


It feels great to have some 160 Kb available for big matrices and lots of large programs. You just never run out of memory anymore ! ... :D

HPPC and CMT are different companies I think.


#6

YES ! And using HPTOUSCHSCREEN II to surf the web in mono. I need the RAM.

Valenetin,

CMT is not HHPC. HHPC also made memory modules and other 71B accessories.

Yes, yes, both of you are completely right, my bad, thanks for pointing it out. Sorry. :)

Anyway, a 128 Kb RAM module is a great addition to any physical HP-71B system, it largely dispenses with the need to use any mass storage device (disk, tape, cards), except for backup purposes, as your essential programs all fit in memory at once.

Thanks and best regards from V.

Speaking of CMT products, do you have a CMT EPROM programmer for the CMT HP-41C EPROMs????
