Languages

The very first pocket computers (PC-1200/PC-1201) just memorized key presses and stored the sequence in memory. See Sample PC-1201 program.

Next (EL-5100) came the Algebraic Expression Reserve (AER) mode which allowed you to enter an expression and the calculator would evaluate it.  The result could be stored in a memory and recalled.

With the PC-1210/11, Sharp introduced a simplified BASIC language (known as S-BASIC) to their pocket computers.  There were many variations of the S'-BASIC and S-BASIC versions, with later versions being supersets of the early ones.

S'-BASIC (S-prime) was the initial BASIC. It appeared first in the PC-1210/PC-1211 machines.  It uses a very efficient single-byte tokenizing system which was able to put every BASIC statement into a single byte.  There was no ability for upper/lower case letters.

S-BASIC appeared in the PC-1260, PC-1350 and PC-1401 (EL-5500II) machines.  It uses a two-byte tokenizing system and has quite a few more statements than S'-BASIC.  Programs written in S'-BASIC can generally (but not always) be transferred to machines that use S-BASIC although some minor tweaking of the program might be required.

The PC-1500/PC-1600 are Z80-based machines and used a different version of BASIC.

Level Converters

Level Converters change the 5 volt TTL logic levels to a RS-232 +/- 12v or RS-422 standard.  They are used to connect the calculators to a standard ports.

To upload a BASIC program from the PC-1360 or other calculator with a 15-pin SIO connector to a PC, you need a level converter and this Upload program.  Run the program with no arguments (i.e., just type Upload.exe) to get a help screen.

This is a DOS program and can be run from a DOS prompt in Win98 or earlier.  It also works in a command window with Windows 2000/SP5, but has not been tested with other versions of the NT/2K/XP family.

15-Pin SIO Connector

The 15-pin SIO (serial input-output) connector is a standard one Sharp that has used for some time--most of their pocket computers use this connector for serial input/output.

It provides TTL-level serial data to/from the pocket computer. A Level Converter is required to interface with standard RS-232 serial communications.  (The new "mini" version of this connector is much smaller, but has the same pin out.)

Desktop Calculators

Sharp produced a number of programmable desktop calculators in the early 1970s prior to the handheld devices. These machines were programmed by hand, with some having a magnetic card system which could store programs and data.

The Cartridge Calculator Series (introduced in 1975) was the first programmable product in which the program could be permanently stored on ROM chips. The program was written in a micro-code similar to the code used in the early desktop calculators and the first programmable handheld calculator. PC-1201 Pocket Computer. The EPROM chips were installed in an interchangeable cartridge. "RAM" (which was a series of numbered memories) was in the calculator and protected by a backup battery.
