Its specialty: It is easy to program based on algebraic notation. Functions and programming-features are completely simulated.
As oppose to the original device the default programming memory of FX-602P Sim is not limited to 512 steps. It has been extended to 999 steps. The default number of registers has been increased from 22 to 110.
In addition the upper registers can be switched to special readonly-registers to read particular values like date, time, timezone and GPS-information.
The iPad offers the special feature of the simulated printer FP-10 for printing listings and memory content as well as data and numbers out of program executions. You can also use it just simply for printing your calculations.
All officially documented functions of the original device are simulated. Undocumented functions, as they are known for synthetic programming are not part of the simulation. The option to play music in connection with an interface-adapter is not simulated either.
If this calculator is new to you, then just have a look at this video. It shows a user typing in a program to solve quadratic equations and testing it.
Looking for FX-602P Simulation for a different platform?
Owners of an Android phone or Symbian device can get an FX-602P Simulation app from an external developer: Martin Krischik released his simulation on various platforms. Also checkit out at the Google Store.
