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! These are inexpensive devices that can be found on eBay. TOPS software showing a binary loaded into the buffer and ready to go! The Willem requires you to set jumpers and dip switches whereas my TOP allows chip selection from software. Don’t look directly at the bulb when the epprom is open. eporm

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. Typical values are 25v, 21v or It may even check automatically. The ICs hold code, often an auxiliary program such as an application, utility or game which wprom be loaded immediately on startup. Be sure to check when ordering and make sure you get the UV-erasable version unless you want an OTP of course.

It is not the epdom UV found in disco lights. Here is one of my efforts regarding the latter. It seems to work well, although at the time of writing the manual for this Chinese device appears to have been written using an 27732 version of Google Translator!


After the prefix is a number such as 16, or 32, 64, etc. For example, one manufacturer might use 21vpp for their ICs eprmo another may use 25vpp. Otherwise there is great risk of zapping the ROM because voltage is applied to the wrong pin!

A couple eprlm VCF folks helped me refine this article. It’s almost completely unreadable. Mask ROMS have embedded code that can’t be changed. With the chip in place, the first step is to load the code into a buffer eporm to burning it into the EPROM. Figure 4 shows a screen shot of my programmer with a 4k System 80 ROM image loaded.

Furthermore, the article doesn’t cover all of the theory and physics. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment. Usually these ICs start with either a or a prefix but there may be others.

EPROM Technical Data

In particular make sure the Vpp is correct and that the IC is oriented correctly and in erpom right position on the IC holder. Modern programmers use menu-based interfaces that are easy to use. 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.

These are explained in this Erom Groups postingwhich also elaborates on the and series and how they differ from or, in the case of theare the same as 27xx EPROMS of the same size. However the programming devices mentioned below do handle these other chips.


2732 EPROM

Fig 1 shows my eraser. These have a “C” between the prefix and size number e. Try 20 minutes first and if that doesn’t fully erase the chip try again with a longer interval until you find a time span that does.

The code needs to be a binary file. Here is an important piece of advice. If things are OK, you’re done.

There will be an icon or menu selection for this. The other voltage is the programming voltage Vpp. It’s also inexpensive, is completely software driven and can supply all necessary programming voltages from a USB link.

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

Some EPROMS don’t have a window and are not erasable even though they have the same part number as the erasable version. Make sure you know the specs you’re dealing with. This is why the ICs have a clear epro, in them; to allow the UV light to penetrate and erase the data. A can hold 4k and so on. One is the READ voltage. Usually a status bar shows progress. 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.

Getting to grips with EPROM programming, and having the gear to do it, is worthwhile if you want to maintain a vintage computer collection.
