Don't know. I bet it emits RF, and the tablet probably has a circuit board with
traces running horizontally on one side an vertically on the other. My Dauphin
detects the pen in this manner.

Power? Maybe the circuit board even has silk-screened notations about what
voltages go where, if you're lucky.

I doubt it; I think it was a serial device. You just need a puck. Hang on to
it and you'll probably find one some day, if you're the scrounging type (is
anyone on this list not... :-))
