One is the READ voltage. Photons of the UV light cause ionization within the silicon oxide, which allow the stored charge on the floating gate to dissipate. 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. International Trade Commission, ed.

A EPROM Datasheet

A couple of VCF folks helped erom refine this article. With the chip in place, the first step is to load the code into a buffer prior to burning it into the EPROM. Usually a status bar shows progress.

Getting to grips with EPROM programming, and having the gear to do it, is worthwhile if you want to maintain a vintage computer collection. In particular make sure the Vpp is correct and that the IC is oriented correctly and in the right position on the IC holder. Typical values are 25v, 21v or Usually these ICs start with either a or a prefix but there may be others. 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 22764 its initial, uncharged condition photoelectric effect.


EPROM programming is slow compared to other forms of memory. Since the datasehet memory array is exposed, all the memory is erased at the same time. In effect, the stored charge on the floating gate allows the threshold voltage of the transistor to be programmed.

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

Development of the EPROM memory cell datazheet with investigation of faulty integrated circuits where the gate connections of transistors had broken.

If you know the basics though the software is easy enough to follow.

The incorrect voltage can kill it. 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.

Digital Design and Fabrication. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment. For example, one manufacturer might use 21vpp for their ICs whereas another may use 25vpp.

The floating-gate electrode has no connections to other parts of the integrated circuit and is completely insulated by the surrounding layers of 274. However the programming devices mentioned below do handle these other chips.

The software that comes with the programmer will manage the burning process. If things are OK, you’re done. Exposure time for sunlight of one week or three years for room fluorescent lighting may cause erasure.


It was soon found that small-volume production was economical with EPROM parts, particularly when the advantage of rapid upgrades of firmware was considered. As the quartz window is 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. 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.

It’s almost completely unreadable.

The recommended erasure procedure is exposure to UV light at Each field-effect transistor consists of a channel in the semiconductor body of the device. It’s also inexpensive, is completely software driven and can supply all necessary programming voltages from a USB link.

Erasure, however, has to be accomplished by non-electrical methods, since the datqsheet electrode is not accessible electrically. While parts of the same size from different manufacturers are compatible in read mode, different manufacturers added different and sometimes multiple programming modes leading to subtle differences in the programming process.
