Processors and Chips	Notes

Capricorn		8 bit CMOS processor used by the -75* and -85*

Nut			-41C custom processor

Sacajawea (1LE2)	Used in the Voyager series (this may be
			a mistake).

-----

Saturn			4 bit CMOS processor used by the -71B
			also, the family name for all the rest

levels:

	0 original
	1 -18C, -28C, few extra instructions
	2 48SX and later, yet more instructions
	3 48G, 48GX, 48G+, yet more instructions

used in: -71B -18C -28C -17B -19B -27S -28S -22S -32S 14B -42S -10B
	-20S -21S 17BII 19BII 48SX 32SII 48S 48G 48GX 48G+ 38G 38G+

Lewis			Processor for the the (-)17B*, (-)19B*, -27S,
			and -28S (1LT8, CMOSG 3V, 1 MHz, 64K ROM,
			-28S uses two of these, one with CPU disabled),
			-42S

	Used in the High end Pioneer family HP17B/17BII/27S/42S.

	The MMU of the Lewis chip is n-island programmable, and every
	model use the same MMU programming. The chips differ only in
	the 64KB ROM content.

	The Lewis chip needs an external RAM (8KB). The international
	versions of the HP17B and HP17BII use an additional 32KB ROM
	chip.

	The HP19B/19BII/28S use two Lewis chips with one external RAM
	chip (8KB on 19B / 32KB on 28S).

Clarke			Processor for the 48SX and 48S (2 MHz),
			1LT8 improved with LCD driver, memory
			controller, UART and IR control, 170 pin TAB
			package

Yorke			Processor for the 48GX and 48G (4 MHz) (Yorke
			was the black member of the Lewis and Clarke
			expedition), 160-ping quad flatpack.  Also used
			in the 38G, 38G+, 39G, 40G, and 49G.

Saca			14B, -22S, -32S, 32SII (640 KHz)

Bert			-10B, -20S, -21S (640 KHz, 10K ROM, 256 RAM,
			display driver), named 1LU7.

	Refering to the 1LU7 BERT External reference specification:

		"... It's design is highly leveraged from the 1LR3
		Sacajawea and 1LR2 Lewis IC. ..."

	The 1LR3 Sacajawea and 1LR2 Lewis CPU are indeed very similar
	(from the CPU core / IO register / display driver aspect).

Children of the original Saturn chip serve as the processor for all
current HP calculators.  These processors are often custom designed
for the calculator they are used in, but it is common to refer to them
all as "having the Saturn architecture."

Marc Staps (marc@knot.nl) reports the following:

	Dr. Van Allen (1914-) relied on a HP-9100A and its optional
	plotter to study the feasability of using a gravity slingshot
	around Jupiter to allow Pioneer 11 to intercept Saturn.
	Pioneer 11 was retasked and arrived at Saturn before Voyager 1.

	A very nice example of how a codename is created.

				it kept getting cut to bare essentials)
82160A		Grapenuts	-41C* HP-IL interface
82161A		Filbert		IL digital cassette drive ("filbert" is a local
				to Oregon name for walnuts or hazelnuts)

82169A		Nutshell	IL HP-IB interface
82182A		Phineas		-41C* time module (assumed that the timer
				came out with the IL module; also, the
				name really is phineas, although I
				assume it's named after Phileas Fogg
				-- strange, huh? -- Dan Allen)
82183A		Wombat		extended I/O ROM
82210A		Hoover		HP-41CV emulator card for the 48SX
82211A		Flamberge	48SX equation library card

82240B		Visine		infrared printer, replaces Redeye
				("gets the red out")
82242A		Blinky		-41C* infrared adapter
82713A		Faline		(PMS)
82718A		Pod		-75* expansion pod

?		Firefly		cancelled successor to the Cricket
?		Eagle		calculator of some kind - never produced
?		Zipper		     "     "    "    "      "       "

The HP-41 HP-IL Development Module came to be known as the "Devil"
module in the user clubs, for self-evident reasons.
