HP-32S[edit]

The HP-32S was a programmable RPN scientific calculator introduced by Hewlett-Packard in 1988 and discontinued in 1991. It continued the tradition of the HP-11C calculator, as it lacked the higher functions such as matrix calculations and reduced functionality in complex calculations of the highest end HP-15C "Voyager" line. It supported limited complex math, statistics, probability, etc.

In 1989, Hewlett-Packard offered a HP-32S 50th Anniversary Limited Edition to employees and shareholders for HP's 50th anniversary.

HP-32SII[edit]

The HP-32SII (F1891A) (with prototypes still named HP-32S+) added algebraic math, fractions and a second shift key. This was introduced in 1991 and discontinued in 2002. Two different model variants of the HP-32SII exist.

Sample Program[edit]

This is an HP-32SII version of the Euclidean algorithm to find the greatest common divisor. It is run by entering the two numbers for which the GCD is wanted, and pressing XEQ E.
