The ICs hold code, often an auxiliary program such as an application, utility or game which can be loaded immediately on startup.

This is why the ICs have a clear window in them; to allow the UV light 7232 penetrate and erase the data. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment. It’s almost completely unreadable.

Once reprogrammed or “burned”they can hold their data for many years. With the chip in place, the first step is to load the code into a buffer prior to burning it into the EPROM. The Willem requires you to set jumpers and dip switches whereas my TOP allows chip selection from software. Not just the size but also the manufacturer. Otherwise there datasheft great risk of zapping the ROM because voltage is applied to the wrong pin!

Often the pin-outs of the mask ROM will be different to the EPROM and some kind of “adapter” needs e;rom be made to switch the pins around or the board circuitry altered.


It’s also inexpensive, is completely software driven and can supply all necessary programming voltages from a USB link. Modern programmers use menu-based interfaces that are easy to use.

IC Datasheet: 2732 EPROM

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. Here is one of my efforts regarding the latter.

The code needs to be a binary file. These are explained in this Google Groups postingwhich also elaborates on the and series and how they differ from or, in the dataaheet of theare the same as 27xx EPROMS of the same size.

Fig 1 shows my eraser. One is the READ voltage. Here is an important piece of advice. Be sure to check when ordering and make sure you get the UV-erasable version unless you want an OTP of course.

The incorrect voltage fatasheet kill it. The other voltage is the programming voltage Vpp. Furthermore, the article doesn’t cover all of the theory and physics. Once complete, most software allows you to verify that datashet image in the EPROM is now the same as the one in the buffer. It may even check automatically. It is not the harmless UV found in disco lights.

EPROM Technical Data

A can hold 4k and so on. For example, one manufacturer might use 21vpp for their ICs whereas another may use 25vpp. Don’t look directly at the bulb when the door is open. However the programming devices mentioned below do handle these other chips. Willem programmers appear popular fig 2. This article is just a basic primer.


There are a number of programmers eprmo the market. These are inexpensive devices that can be found on eBay. Rather it provides enough practical tips and information for readers to attempt an EPROM replacement of failed compatible parts. These have a “C” between the prefix and size number e.

If things are OK, you’re done. Datasheeet 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.

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. A couple dataasheet VCF folks helped me refine this article. They are cheap and flexible but have a bewildering array of jumpers and switches to set. Usually a status bar shows progress. This is applied to the Vcc pin and is typically 5 volts. For your average vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label.

Usually these ICs start with either a or a prefix but there may be others.
