The Willem requires you to set jumpers and dip switches whereas my TOP allows chip selection from software. There will be an icon or menu selection for this. The other voltage is the programming voltage Vpp. With the chip in place, the first step is to load the code into a buffer prior to burning it into the EPROM.

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

For your sprom vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label. 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.

The ICs hold code, often an auxiliary program such as an application, utility or game which can be loaded immediately on startup. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment. It’s almost completely unreadable. Otherwise there is great risk of zapping the ROM because voltage is applied to the wrong pin! It’s also inexpensive, is completely software driven and can supply all necessary programming voltages from a USB link.


These have a “C” between the prefix and size number e. Willem programmers appear popular fig 2. Not all ROM images are available on the Web and it’s a eproom idea to extract the code for posterity and possible future use!

Typically, my eraser will blank a chip in about 20 minutes. Getting to grips with EPROM programming, and erpom the gear to do it, is eprkm if you want to maintain a vintage computer collection.

2532/2732 EPROM Adapter

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. Fig 7232 shows my eraser.

In particular make sure the Vpp is correct fprom that the IC is oriented correctly and in the right eeprom on the IC holder. It seems to work well, although at the time of writing the manual for this Chinese device appears to have been written using an early version of Google Translator!

Here is one of my efforts regarding the latter. The software that comes with the programmer will manage the burning process.

Don’t look directly at the bulb when the door is open. Beware sprom, as many modern ones will not handle the smaller capacity ICs like the and ones found in very old microcomputers. It is not the harmless UV found in disco lights. This is why the ICs have a clear window in them; to allow the UV light to penetrate and erase the data.


Here is an important piece of advice. It may even check automatically. The incorrect voltage can kill it. Once reprogrammed or “burned”they can hold their data for many years.

2732A 32K (4K x8) UV EPROM

Once complete, most software allows you to verify that the image in the EPROM is now the same as the one in the buffer. After the prefix is a number such as 16, or 32, 64, etc. Rather it provides enough practical tips and information for readers to attempt an EPROM replacement of failed compatible parts. Make sure you know the specs you’re dealing with. Usually these ICs start with either a or a prefix but there may be others.

These are inexpensive devices that can be found on eBay. I had a Willem but it died so my current programmer is a Top out of China fig 3. If things are OK, you’re done. There are a number of programmers on the market.
