The eproj needs to be a binary file. Usually a status bar shows progress. One is the READ voltage. This article is just a basic primer.
Rather it provides enough practical sprom and information for readers to attempt an EPROM replacement of failed compatible parts. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment.
For your average vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label. Make sure you know the specs you’re dealing with. There will be an icon or menu selection for this. 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.
Don’t look directly at the bulb when the door is open. It’s almost completely unreadable. Otherwise there is great risk of zapping the ROM because voltage is applied to the wrong pin! However the programming devices mentioned below do handle these other chips. They are cheap and flexible but have a bewildering array of jumpers and switches to set. 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!
If things are OK, you’re done. Usually these ICs start with either a or eprm prefix but there may be others. From time to time those of us with the passion to 232 ancient computers from the and s will come across the need to replace a failed masked ROM or EPROM.
Beware though, as many modern ones will not handle the smaller capacity ICs like the and ones found in very old microcomputers. The Willem requires you to set jumpers and dip switches whereas my TOP allows chip selection from software. TOPS software showing a binary loaded into the buffer and ready to go! The ICs hold code, often an auxiliary program such as an application, utility or game which can be loaded immediately on startup.
Here is one of my efforts eprm the latter. These are explained in this Google 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. Typical values are 25v, 21v or These have a “C” between the prefix and size number e. A couple of VCF 27322 helped me refine this article.
Fig 1 shows my eraser. Be sure to check when ordering and make sure you get the UV-erasable version unless you want an OTP of course. A can hold 4k and so on. It is not the harmless UV found in disco lights. Willem programmers appear popular fig 2.
Not just the size but also the manufacturer. Here is an important piece of advice.
EPROMS: The minimum you need to know to burn your own
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 software that comes with the programmer will manage the burning process.
Furthermore, the article doesn’t cover all of the theory and physics. There are fundamental differences between the “non-standard” TMS made by Texas Instruments and ‘standard” s made by others.
Getting to grips with EPROM programming, and having the gear to do it, is worthwhile if you want to maintain a vintage computer collection. This is why the ICs have a clear window in them; to allow the UV light to penetrate and erase the data.

Mask ROMS have embedded code that can’t be changed. If you know the basics though the software is easy enough to follow. In particular make sure the Vpp is correct and that the IC is oriented correctly and in the right position on the IC holder.
