Sharp programmable family & other oldies
*my collection*

            

illustration photo ill.photo

All of these 8 bit computers are basic programmable, most of them have 11-pin printer port for printer output and cassette input-output, some of them have 15-pin RS232 serial interface. We see these on left-right photos. These ports enable them to be programmed for external communications.

Especially the PC1600 with 8 bit AD converter and enhanced basic instructions set. But addressing particular pins for 11-pin printer-cassette tape interface is slitly different for various types of these pretty Sharp pocket computers.

Powered are most of them with two CR2032 3V button cells.
PC-1500, PC-1600 and PC-E220 are powered with 4 AA cells and PC-E500(S) with 4 AAA cells.
As memory safety batery serves one of the CR20XX cells.
