An EPROM (rarely EROM), or erasable programmable read-only memory, is a type of memory . , 27C, Kbit, 16 KB, , 3FFF, NMOS/CMOS. I ask because although I have several STMAFI EPROM chips it would be nice to be able to use something I could write and then rewrite.

Initially, it was thought that the EPROM would be too expensive for mass production use and that it would be confined to development only. Posted Sat Jun 18, 8: The recommended erasure procedure is exposure to UV light at Willem programmers appear popular fig 2. A really nice little gadget to have. The general idea was to put the current OS in ram, then switch back and forth, programming the new OS from main memory.

On one of the sockets I added a jumper post with three pins. Posted Mon Jul 4, 2: Make sure you know the specs you’re dealing with. I know I’ll get whatever I end up ordering within a few days rather than ewprom few weeks. Thanks, whether that’s the reason or not, I like it as an explanation The software that comes with the programmer will manage the burning process.

EPROM Technical Data

This prompted larger capacity devices to introduce a “signature mode”, allowing the manufacturer and device to be identified by the EPROM programmer. However, as this was not universal, programmer software also would allow eeptom setting of the manufacturer and device type of the chip to ensure proper programming. Often the pin-outs of the mask ROM will be different to the EPROM and some kind of “adapter” needs to be made to switch the pins around or the board circuitry altered.

Hierarchical block is unconnected 3.

Swapping the OS ROM for an EEPROM – Atari 8-Bit Computers – AtariAge Forums

Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: An insulating layer of oxide is grown over the channel, then a conductive silicon or aluminum gate electrode is deposited, and a further thick layer of oxide is deposited over the gate electrode. Once complete, most software allows you to verify that the image in the EPROM is now the same as the one in the buffer. The same chip came in somewhat cheaper opaque OTP packages for production.

Have You Played Atari Today? Save the money and instead get yourself one of these: It was soon found that small-volume production was economical with EPROM parts, particularly when the advantage of rapid upgrades of firmware was considered.

Has anyone ever tried something along those lines? How do you get an MCU design to market quickly? The first generation devices were fabricated with the p-MOS techology.

For your average vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label.

When the high voltage is removed, the electrons are trapped eepdom the electrode.

I guess you don’t even really need a circuit board for it – just bend up the pins and solder a small dip-switch in place. You’d also be fine with a ‘, since usually Vpp where the additional address line would be on a is tied to Vcc for eepeom operation.


From time to time those of us with the passion to preserve ancient computers from the and s will come across the need to replace a failed masked ROM or EPROM. There are a number of programmers on the market. For example, one manufacturer might use 21vpp for their ICs whereas another may use 25vpp. I’ve not examined an Intel in quite a while, so do your research and double check eerpom pinout, that being said if a 27C is a drop-in replacement, you might consider the SST27SF, which was specifically designed as a drop-in replacement for 27C to 27C The STMAFI, which through the same period exposed to ambient sunlight and artificial light had not lost a single byte was totally erased.

Usually a status bar shows progress. Posted Sat Jun 18, The timer is also not ideal; it feels rather flimsy and as phoenixdownita related I would not be surprized if it broke off altogether.

Swapping the OS ROM for an EEPROM

Several functions may not work. The erasing window must be kept covered with an opaque label to prevent accidental erasure by the UV found in sunlight or camera flashes.

Posted Sat Jun 18, 6: PNP transistor not working 2. The programming process is not electrically reversible.
