Development of the EPROM memory cell started with investigation of faulty integrated circuits where the gate connections of transistors had broken. This is why the ICs have a clear window in them; to allow the UV light to penetrate and erase the data. Even dust inside the package can prevent some cells from being erased. For your average vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label.
What you need to do will differ depending the machine. Modern programmers use menu-based interfaces that are easy to use.
IC Datasheet: 2764 EPROM
Often this label was foil-backed to ensure its opacity to UV. Digital Design and Fabrication. The effects of this process on the reliability of the part would have required extensive testing so they decided on the window instead.
Shining ultraviolet light on any part of an unpackaged device causes a photocurrent to flow from the floating gate back to the silicon substrate, thereby discharging the gate to its initial, uncharged condition photoelectric effect.
Initially, it was thought that the EPROM would be too expensive for mass production use and that it would be confined to development only. It may even check automatically. A can hold 4k and so on. Photons of the UV perom cause ionization within the silicon oxide, which allow the stored charge on the floating gate to dissipate. In particular make sure the Vpp is correct and that the IC is oriented correctly and in the right position on the IC holder.
The other voltage is the programming voltage Vpp.

The same chip came in somewhat dztasheet opaque OTP packages for production. Leaving the die of such a chip exposed to light can also change behavior in unexpected ways when moving from a windowed part used for development to a non-windowed part for production. Furthermore, the article doesn’t cover all of the theory and physics.
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. Ratasheet page was last edited on 8 Novemberat Erasure, however, has to be accomplished by non-electrical methods, since the gate electrode is not accessible electrically.
Willem programmers appear popular fig 2. It’s also inexpensive, is completely software driven and can supply all datasbeet programming voltages from a USB link. The code needs to be a binary file. As the quartz window datashest expensive to make, OTP one-time programmable chips were introduced; here, the die is mounted in an opaque package so it cannot be erased after programming — this also eliminates the need to test the erase function, further reducing cost.

Archived PDF from the original on Like Datashee chips, such microcontrollers came in windowed expensive versions that were used for debugging and program development. A couple of VCF folks helped me refine this article.
Fig 1 shows my eraser.
Each bit of the word is a 1 or 0, depending on the storage transistor being switched on or off, conducting or non-conducting. Non-volatile memory Integrated circuits Computer memory. Once reprogrammed or “burned”they can hold their data for many years. Here is one of my efforts regarding the latter. Not just epdom size but also the manufacturer.
The first generation devices were fabricated with the p-MOS techology. 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! EPROM programming is slow compared to other forms of memory. The incorrect voltage can kill wprom.
