hello everyone and congratulations for the great information,
especially from the GURU !
I'm looking for someone who has put the TM990 / 189 microcomputer into
operation with the FW university basic.

You may want to talk to Urbite, as I think he has one. I haven't had the time to set mine up to test it yet (I bought a NOS unit early last year), so I can't help too much.

ok thanks, I followed the instructions of the databook, with the original or copied eprom works, with the dedicated fw the micro remains locked.

updating
in internet the FWs are the correct checksum for U32 = 7546 (tms2716) and U33 = D806 (tms2532).
for programming the U33 (tms2532) with willem or tl866 like (tms2732), an adapter must be used to make the pins compatible, in this way.
 
u33 adapter
 
tms 2532       tms 2732
21       vpp     20
20       cs       18
19       a10     19
18       a11     21
 
for the U32  attention because it has three power supplies (+5, -5, +12) you can use a D2716 (5 volt power supply) by modifying the PCB or using an adapter
 
u32 adapter
 
tms2716 (-5 volt)      D2716 ( 5 volt )
19  vdd                      19  n.c.
21  vbb                      21 connect +5
20  a10                      19
                                  20 connect gnd

I like the idea of using the housing of the TI-59 calculator as a terminal to the board.

I'm glad you found the eprom files, I'm watching tonight and I have these eproms with my card.

a real ti59 is not used, but it is the tms9901 outputs that drive the display and manage the keyboard in multiplex...

Yes, I know, but it's the housing of the calculator.
