Willem programmers appear eproom fig 2. It is not the harmless UV found in disco lights. Once reprogrammed or “burned”they can hold their data for many years.

This is why the ICs have a clear window in them; to allow the UV light to penetrate and erase the data. First rule is to know the kind of EPROMS you want or are likely to want to burn and get a programmer that can handle them. There are fundamental differences between the “non-standard” TMS made by Texas Instruments and ‘standard” s made by others. Be sure to check when ordering and make sure you get the UV-erasable version unless you want an OTP of course.

It seems to work well, although at the time of writing the manual for this Chinese device appears to have been written using an early version of Google Translator! 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.

There are 8 kilobits in a kilobyte. One is the READ voltage. These are inexpensive devices that can be found on eBay. Furthermore, the article doesn’t cover all of the theory and physics. Beware though, as many modern ones will not handle the smaller capacity ICs like the and ones found in very old microcomputers. The code needs to be a binary file. The other voltage is the programming voltage Vpp. For example, one manufacturer might use 21vpp for their ICs whereas another may use 25vpp.

Modern programmers use menu-based interfaces that are easy to use. After the prefix is a number such as 16, or 32, 64, etc. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment. Make sure you know the specs dprom dealing with. Try 20 minutes first and if that doesn’t fully erase the chip try again with a longer interval until eporm find a time span that does.

It may even check automatically.

EPROMS: The minimum you need to know to burn your own

Rather it provides enough practical tips and information for readers to attempt an EPROM replacement of failed compatible parts.

What you need to do will differ depending the machine. TOPS software showing a binary loaded into the buffer and ready to go! They are cheap and flexible eprm have a bewildering array of jumpers and switches to set.

There will be an icon or menu selection for this. If things are OK, you’re done.

Here is an important piece of advice. Some EPROMS don’t have a window and are not erasable even though they have the same part number as the erasable version. Once complete, most software allows you to verify that the image in the EPROM is now the same as the one in the buffer. For your average vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label.


The software that comes with the programmer will manage the burning process. Fig 1 shows my eraser. Getting to grips with EPROM programming, and having the gear to do it, is worthwhile if you want to maintain a vintage computer collection. There are a number of programmers on the market.

Mask ROMS have embedded code that can’t be changed. Usually a status bar shows progress. It’s almost completely unreadable. Not all ROM images are available on the Web and it’s a good idea to extract the code for posterity and possible future use! Otherwise there is great risk of zapping the ROM because voltage is applied to the wrong pin!

These have a “C” between the prefix and size number e. 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. I had a Willem but it died so my current programmer is a Top out of China fig 3.

The incorrect voltage can kill it. Usually these ICs 2372 with either a or a prefix but there may be others. Typical values are 25v, 21v or Figure 4 shows a screen shot of my programmer with a 4k System 80 ROM image loaded. This is applied to the Vcc pin and is typically 5 volts. Here is one of my efforts regarding the latter. This article is just a basic primer. The ICs hold code, often an auxiliary program such as an application, utility or game which can be loaded immediately on startup.

A couple of VCF folks helped me refine this article. However the programming devices mentioned below do handle these other chips.
