It is not the harmless UV found in disco lights. Mask ROMS have embedded code that can’t be changed.
Here is one of my efforts regarding the latter. This article is just a basic primer. There are a number of programmers on the market. Modern programmers use menu-based interfaces that are easy to use. Don’t look directly at the bulb when the door is open. It’s almost completely unreadable.
Getting to grips with EPROM programming, and having the gear to do it, is worthwhile if you want to maintain a vintage computer collection.

Beware though, as many modern ones will not handle the smaller capacity ICs like the and ones found in very epro, microcomputers. From time to time those of us with the passion datashee preserve ancient computers from the and s will come across the need to replace a failed masked ROM or EPROM. Usually a status bar shows progress. For your average vintage microcomputer, EPROMS can be recognised by their clear transparent windows, normally covered by some kind of label.
TOPS software showing a binary loaded into the buffer and ready to go! Be sure to check when ordering and make sure you get the UV-erasable version unless you want an OTP of course. 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.
For example, one manufacturer might use 21vpp for their ICs whereas another may use 25vpp. I had a Willem but it died so my current programmer is a Top out of China fig 3.
This is applied to the Vcc pin and is typically 5 volts. Often the pin-outs of the mask ROM will be different to the EPROM and some kind of “adapter” needs to be made datasheet switch the pins around or the board circuitry altered.
Make sure you know the specs you’re dealing with. The ICs hold code, often an auxiliary program such as an application, utility or game which can be loaded datasehet on startup. One is the READ voltage.
EPROM Technical Data
eprim 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. It may even check automatically. Some EPROMS don’t have a window and are not erasable even though they have the same part number as the erasable version. They are cheap and flexible but have a bewildering array of jumpers and switches to set. If things are OK, you’re done. What you need to do will differ depending the machine.
Not just the size but also the manufacturer. This is why the ICs have a clear window in them; to allow the UV light to penetrate and erase the data. Ddatasheet is an important piece of advice.
There will be an icon or menu selection for eprm. Usually these ICs start with either a or a prefix but there datasyeet be others. Otherwise there is great risk of zapping the ROM because voltage is applied to the wrong pin! The software that comes with the programmer will manage the burning process.
It’s also inexpensive, is completely software driven and can supply all necessary programming voltages from a USB link. A couple of VCF folks helped datasgeet refine this article.
There are fundamental differences between the “non-standard” TMS made by Texas Instruments and ‘standard” s made by others. The UV wavelength used is the same as that used for sterilizing equipment.
With the chip in place, the first step is to load the code into a buffer prior to burning it into the EPROM. In particular make sure the Vpp is correct and that the IC is oriented correctly and in the right position on the IC holder.
Once complete, most software allows you to verify that the image in the EPROM is now the same as the one in the buffer. 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! There are 8 kilobits in a kilobyte.
After the prefix is a number such as 16, or 32, 64, etc. The Willem requires you to set jumpers and dip switches whereas my TOP allows chip selection from software. Figure 4 shows a screen shot of my programmer with a 4k System 80 ROM image loaded.

Typical values are 25v, 21v or Fig 1 shows my eraser. Rather it provides enough practical tips and information for readers to attempt an EPROM replacement of failed compatible parts. Once reprogrammed or “burned”they can hold their data for many years. Adtasheet all ROM images are available on the Web datashedt it’s a good idea to extract the code for posterity and possible future use!
These have a “C” between the prefix and size number e.
Typically, my eraser will blank a chip in about 20 minutes. These are inexpensive devices that can be found on eBay.
