Re: EZOFlash Programmer Assembly kit???

By: koolit - 2007-09-17 23:54:35

Thanks for the input.

I found a PCB5.0 Willem Eprom Programmer which is locally available in US. Do you support this version on this forum? I'll get it together with sivava T01 and T07 if they will do the job for me.

Please advice!

Re: EZOFlash Programmer Assembly kit???

By: EZo - 2007-09-17 17:33:34

You have following choices:
1) ezoflash+, adapter tsop48d2, design DIY,   no kits available, cheapest willem programmer version. Details in ezoflash page, programmer supported on willem and ezoflash(russian) forums. Programmer oriented in flash memory programming, a lot of adapters info available. Similar chips SST39VF160 and SST39VF1602 are verified OK.
2) pcb4.5c and adapters T01/T07 from sivava page, comercially available. No detailed info on hardware available. You can find support here, it is limited by users experience only. pcb45c can be replaced to any other willem programmer, kits are available on version w4.1 from willem shop.
3) epsilon UFP6.03 is clone from willem and ezoflash programmers. It has own 16 bit flash adapter. I do not recomend this programmer, it is available comercially, but not supported here at all.

EZOFlash Programmer Assembly kit???

By: koolit - 2007-09-17 04:05:22

I am planning to read and write info on SST39VF1601 and my researched pointed me in this forum. I looked into the EZO+ website and willing to build the programmer as a hobby.

My question is, are there any assembly kit available to build EZOflash programmer? What version, if any?
Could someone here shed some light to a newbie?

I can probably use a perforated PCB but I would prefer a kit and save all the troubles of sourcing the parts in small qty here and there.

As far as the SST39Vf1601 adapter is concerned, I understand I need T01 and T07 from sivava. Is this correct?
Or is there any kit available for adapter TSOP48_D2?

LH28F160BVHE-TTL90????

By: mbates14 - 2007-09-11 19:13:37

i bought a new board and adapters from sivava i think the place is called.

anyway, im trying to read LH28F160BVHE-TTL90 with the TSOP48 8/16 adapter set to 28Fxxx. and i cant get a good read at all.

it seems like its comming back corrupted or the software just doesnt read that chip properly??

any ideas???

i get hte same read no matter how much i reseat the chip. so it has to be seated right.

Not me from any ids and I don't succeed in programming...
does someone know if I have mistaken the setups?
Help me.....

sivava programmers and 27C801's....

By: toibs - 2007-08-05 01:41:21

Guys,
After a little assistance if anyone could offer it please?

I have one of these : http://www.sivava.com/Product_A03.htm
and i'm trying to program some 27C801's. However they always seem to error whilst programming.

Firstly has anyone got one of those diagrams that tells you which jumpers do what on this board? I remember one coming with it, however it's long gone...

Secondly i see A19 mentioned a lot when programming these. Which is A19, and is it only applicable to the 27c080??

Thanks for your help...

blackbiter,

I used my willem 3.1 and (t01+t07) from sivava to program the sst39vf1601.  I used the same settings as yours.  I can get the manufacturer code:  sst/sanyo.  However, i cannot get the device id (0x234b).  Would you be able to get the 0x234b id?  Thanks in advance.

Re: Winbond W39V040FBPZ

Hi,

Download the FA and FB datasheets from here and look for differences.

I checked the device ID section and it's the same for both devices, so you should be able to get a valid id using W39F040FA.

Contact sivava for questions regarding 0.98* program versions.  They severed ties with Willem several years ago.  0.97ja is end-of-life.

Do you have VCC set to 5.0V?  Unless sivava made some significant changes for FWH/LPC, you set VCC to 5.0V

Re: Problems burning 27c256

By: DL - 2007-06-28 14:09:37

Hi,

With your programmer still set for 27C256, enter the Test H/W tab.   With no device in the socket enable VPP and measure the voltage on pin3 of the socket.

If you don't measure 12.9V, it could be a problem with the DIP12 switch or the A18,19/29x040 jumper setting.

The problem with 0.98D5 may be that your programmer is a PCB3.5 or PCB4 and needs 0.98D2.   Whoever you bought the programmer from might have thought they were doing you a favor by including the latest program version; but D5 is only compatible with PCB4.5.   Check this link for more info.

HTH,
Dennis

Re:  98d6

By: DL - 2007-05-28 17:06:36

Hi,

Your best bet is to go to sivava.com.  Their downloads section lists 0.98d5 as the latest version.  Sivava doesn't have downloads for any other versions.

Re: Motherboard broken

By: DL - 2007-05-18 14:57:46

Hi,

You should be able to connect/disconnect the parallel and USB connections anytime and not have problems.  If you inserted/removed a chip, you could damage the programmer (kill the transistor used to switch either VCC or VPP) or the chip being inserted/removed.  Your USB port might be damaged if you draw too much current (anything more than 100mA needed to be negotiated with the USB controller and Willem programmers don't do that).  Have you tried powering down and then rebooting your computer?

If you make sure the programming sockets aren't powered when you insert/remove devices, nothing will be damaged.  If you insert a DIP device backwards, it will short the switched VCC supply, but that could only damage the programmer and the device you're trying to read/program.  The transistor switch should protect the USB controller.

Check your programmer standalong before connecting to another computer.  Power from the external power supply jack and measure voltages on the emitters of the transistor switches.  I don't think sivava makes schematic/component diagrams available, but you can trace back from the ZIF socket.  If you can run the program on another computer, enter the Test H/W tab to find out how to set switches/jumpers.  Then (with the programmer still not connected to a computer), measure VPP and VCC on the emitter and collector terminals of their transistor switches.  On the emitters, you should get 12.5V for VPP (or whatever voltage you have it set for) and 5V for VCC (or whatever voltage you have it set for); the collector terminal on both transistors should be around 0V.  If those voltages are correct, apply 5V through a 1K resistor to pin1 on the parallel connector and measure the collector of the VPP transistor.  It should be whatever you measured on the emitter.  Apply 5V through the 1K resistor to pin16.  Measure voltage on the collector of the VCC transistor; it should be whatever you measured on the emitter.

If those voltages are correct, your programmer may be okay.  I don't think a programmer can damage a parallel port unless it's defective.

HTH,
Dennis

Motherboard broken

By: paulus1234 - 2007-05-18 12:25:19

I bought last week a PCB4.5C at sivava.com. I tested it. It didn't work. Then i pull out the chip while the programmer was connected to the PC. a bit later I pull out the USB cable. All at once the motherboard get stuck. And I didn't manage to get it on again.   I think it's stuck. I'am new in this things of programming EPROM. What are the thing you musn't do? Is it normal what has happened or not? Before I put the programmer to another computer I would know what was wrong. Is it because of pulling out the USB cable so that the programmer asked to much current or is it because of pulling the EPROM out of the DLCCP so I got a short circuit. Or is it because of another reason probably? Can anyone help me?

Re: Programmer stopped powering on.

By: rada - 2007-05-15 21:47:21

Do you mean splicing the USB cable and soldering it directly to the board?  I think I can find a better quality USB connector somewhere here instead..  

What are the `power issues' with PSB3 relating to?  I mostly program only FLASH and small eeproms and PICs (all 2.7-5.5v).  Also the sivava one I ordered has dual power.

The USB ones are too expensive I think, and I bought a lpt header for my mobo just for this so it isnt problematic.  And I agree with the SMT stuff.  I prefer through-hole on this programmer since it makes performing mods infinitely easier, though SMT isn't so hard to solder.  Thanks.

Re: Programmer stopped powering on.

By: DL - 2007-05-15 21:19:21

Hi,

You could try soldering the connections on the USB connector.   It's strange that this caused the LED to not light when only connected to the parallel port.   My experience is that one or more of the signals are usually HIGH and that drives the power LED through the pull-up resistors.

The sivava PCB4.5C is a decent programmer with all of the power issues associated with PCB3 based designs (VPP is from a step-up regulator subject to coil problems, not enough VCC options, voltage drop with NMOS EPROMs, no "proper" low voltage support).   If you intend to program FLASH devices, it's fine and the fastest parallel interface Willem available.   The software for that programmer is still being maintained, so new device support is likely.

If you're going to be programming EPROMs, I think a modified Willem 4.1 is a better choice.   The modification is to get more VCC options and is pretty easy to do on that programmer.   Others can be modified, but are a little more work.   It supports low voltage correctly (if you ignore the FWH/LPC hack).

If I was in the market for a new Willem based programmer, I'd go for one of the new USB versions (use USB for both power and communication, not the ones that only use USB for power).   From what I've read, the mcumall.com version has a lot of capabilities and good support.   Willem should have one soon.   Programming times are significantly improved and power should also be improved.   Step-up regulators are required for both supplies, but the on-board controller will address the limitations of the current designs.   But they'll cost 2-4x more than the current programmers and will no longer be as easy to modify/repair (surface mount components).

HTH,
Dennis

Re: What are the HW MODS so v4.1 -is- v4.5 board?

By: razor - 2007-04-23 00:59:47

I think I have finally solved the problem, my current board does support PLCC 32 and FHW/ LPC, but the chip has to be a true 32 pin chip,(not just a 28 packaged as a32) for example the w29c512 apparently isn't a true 32 pin package so what I really need is a tsop28 to plcc32 adapter I think.

So is the 4.1 sivava better own over than the 4.5 Sivava?

I'm seeing that the 4.5 has less support for plcc32 and fhw/lpc support on board?

sivava 45C wanna program 8749H

By: ricky_ricardo - 2007-03-26 06:31:31

Hello,

I purchased my first sivava PCB 45C programmer 3 days ago and wanna program an Intel 8749H microcontroller.

Software V 0.98D5

DEVICE --> D8749H
positioned the Jumpers and Dipswitches like on the Picture.

I am using an MCS-48 adapter  purchased from SIVAVA.

Vpp jumper is set to 21 V.

The programmer reads fine  the device but cant program.  Even if I read the device and I try to program the same data an error appears !  

Hardware is connected trough LPT Port and Test Hardware works also fine.
Power comes from USB and I also have tried a 12VDC Powersupply.


Hope anyone could help me in the next hours , Please !!!

how to mod tsop48 we for 16bits only mode?

By: dave50 - 2007-03-20 03:09:07

hi folks,
ihave in my hand a willem 3.1 pcb with a tsop48we adapter from willem shop. the adapter works cool with 29lv160,f400 etc, but with the 39fv160 dont work, not id, i ve read so i need the adapter from sivava tsop48d2 ,(16 bit only)

but if somebody have schematics for built a adapter mod  to plug my  adapter

http://www.willem.org/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=1_21&products_id=68

and convert to 16 bit adapter,
 
plus i buy too this adapter for plcc if work for the cause
16 bit 40/42 pin combi adapter, 27C400..320 and 27C1024..240

well, if the boards were made with a common address/data/control/display connector bus, like a back-plane of a computer main-frame,   upgrades would be modular.!

yeah, the voltage mod could be nice, and keeping the serial programming stuff makes it better than a 'normal' v4.5, it's just jumpered out...
and again ... if the circuitry had a data/address/control/display bus connector, these types of upgrades could be 'dynamic' in nature, putting in what circuitry you'd need for the chips you want to program.

as it is now, each programmer is 'separate' in nature from each others options, but any of them can be built-up or down, to each others options, by just removing, or adding, the associated circuitry.

I'm saying, keep what's on each programmer now, but make a common data/address/control/display bus connector as a 'unified' upgrade, so anyones programmer can be built-up to the current model. ... and jumpers will control the already existing circuitry, to use or not use at the time of programming... to 'emulate' the version of your choice.
I don't see what any problem would be, its a kit, like all the others , or , could be, and I'm sure there are sections of the board where a part's pin could hang from the socket, or as such, to attach a wire to a unified bus upgrade board... without having to make too many, if any, trace cuts on the main original board.

I just took a quick look at the v4.5 schematic, and apart from ONE regulator difference,

I can't see any additions not already on the v4.1 board.
The main difference between the Willem 4.1 and 4.5 is that the 4.5 is intended to be a FLASH programmer.   Support for serial, DIP24, 27SF*, and FWH/LPC devices was removed.   VPP options were reduced to 12.5V only, more VCC options were added.   You can still program DIP24 and FWH/LPC with adapters.   Can also program 27SF* erase, but can't erase.   If you program NMOS devices, you'll have voltage drop problems that the relay on the 4.1 addresses.   The 4.5 has a built-in TSOP48 socket that supports devices that have a byte wide mode.   It has more low voltage options, but may have problems communicating with the printer port when operating at voltages significantly below the 5V that the printer port is operating at.   The 4.1 has a level shifter that addresses most of that.
Quote:
why can't this board work with the newer software?
The newer 0.98* program versions change the way addresses are generated and data is read from the CD4014/4021.   The number of clocks required to set addresses is reduced to 1/3 of the time required by 0.97g.   This gives a significant speed-up.   Later versions of 0.98 started reading all three outputs from the CD4014/4021 which gave another speed-up.   These changes can be made on Willem programmers, but sivava might not like it.

The registry fix is here.   I recommend installing it to avoid random writing to devices when XP decides to poll the printer port.   The patch stopped working for me and I had to disable legacy PNP on the printer port.

I could get a new bios image written to the device.
Of course, I save the orig. image first

It does read for example, a Winbond W49V002A but I cannot write to it.
I think the software will support this type of device i.e. it is listed in the device picker/selector
but the board will not.

The sivava website states these are supported but then goes on to state they have not been tested.
Would I be correct to state, I would require a v4 or v4.5 PCB to write to a Winbond W49V002A?

I bought PCB4.5C from www.sivava.com, and I can't program PIC16F57 chip, too.
Although they named it 4.5C, the programmer is NOT Willem 4.5, but more like
enhanced version of 3.0, and should be able to program PICs - at least, that's what
they claim on their site.

Every time it runs, it fails with first byte of HEX file. Reading back from the chip shows
first byte is written wrongly. I guess the programmer detects this and simply abort
whole process. Have no idea why it writes wrong byte to a chip.

ok im back on this subject again, i have located some M29F102 now can willem read these and the M27C1024 ?
IF so what do i need adapter wise, also is there a database on what chips need what adapters?
I cant seem to find anything??

Just so you know i have this programmer http://www.sivava.com/EPROM_Pro_02.htm and this adpater set http://www.sivava.com/image_T10.htm

Re: Willem pro 2 programming which software to use

Good news...

 Eventually the PIC 18F2550 has been programmed successfully. Both with 0.98D5 downloaded from www.sivava.com (thanks Dennis) and also with winPic800 3.60 (thanks EZo, winpic800 was not working for me, but as you've told me it was for you, I just re-install it, keep the default config and it worked. I guess I've played to much with the Hardware configuration during all my tests...).

 Many thanks for your help!   ;)

Re: Willem pro 2 programming which software to use

Dennis,

 Thanks for your answer. Now I know that the pro2 is a PCB4.5 version. For the moment, sivava's website is not responding. I will try again later.
 I have tried again with TOMSAD Software. One thing I didn't noticed before was that pressing Test H/W makes the software use 100% of the CPU.

EZo,

 Thanks for your answer too. I will try your winPic800 configuration soon.

Anyway many thanks to both of you for not letting me alone in the dark with this PIC programming.

Will keep you informed of any progress...

Can't help with this.  The downloads section for the TOMSAD site isn't available.

Use PCB3 - this only changes the display for the DIP12 switch.  If you pay attention to the graphic, it doesn't matter which you use; but it's easier if you select the "correct" option.

The software for Sivava's PCB4.5 supports 18F2550 and should work for serial devices on Willem-compatible programmers.  Someone posted a link for downloading the software a few months back.  I think I read that sivava was allowing downloads of the software now; previously it was only included with programmers.

Do you apply adapter B13 from Sivava, Adapter TSOP40/32 Firmware HUB/LPC ? There is no reports on this adapter usage, should be common.
Apply Vpp jumper and be sure Vpp on ZIF32 pin 1 (jumper left from 12pos.panel).

Now you can read, erase and write.

Chip ID comes up blank but it seems to read, although I cant be sure what its reading isnt just rubbish as the chip was corrupted. Sometimes I have had some data read from it sometimes nothing. Erraseing the chip stays at 0% but gives no error and exactly the same when trying to programming.
I get the feeling that I have either fried the chip while trying to programme it or i have some settings wrong somewhere.

Re: PCB4.5C + PIC Programming Problem

By: djez - 2006-09-12 16:40:25

Original 4.5 design doesn't support serial programing. I don't know if Sivava's version support it. Check 4.1 and 4.5 schemes, compare it with your board and try if you find serial interface.

Doesn't matter on settings because switches are used only for paralel programing. You have to only set correct VCC (5 V) and VPP (about 13 V). Also serial interface must be present and you have to insert PIC to correct socket.

Hi,

The Willem 4.5 requires an adapter because the on-board PLCC32 socket is for "regular" FLASH/EPROM.  Your device is FWH.

Sivava PCB4.5 has a socket for FWH/LPC.

HTH,
Dennis

Re: Still can't get it to work 2764 errors everywh

By: David Jez - 2006-08-24 12:05:49

I mean voltage regulator on programmer board. I didn't see Sivava's scheme and don't know what he use. Because Willem 4.5 board has 7812 voltage regulator for VPP. Sivava's board is powered from USB or power suply. For this old EPROMs power from USB isn't enought, you need strong external power suply.

BTW Are you sure that you have TMS 2764? Becouse i think that 2764 is VPP=21 V device, 27C64 is VPP=12.5 V. So you if you have VPP=21 V device and try to program with VPP=12.5 V, it doesn't enought.

FYI this kind of chips use "dual power". VCC is operational power and VPP is another power used only for programing. So you can read and verify all with only VCC used. But VPP is needed only for programing. Newer devices such FLASH use only one power VCC for read, erase and programing.

Error message you wrote means that you tried program byte 0x43 but there is 0xFF in chip. Because address is 0000 and 0xFF is erased byte, programing wasn't succesfull. Try higher VPP as device needs and it should work. Don't worry that device wasn't succesfully programed, you can program it again. If you program same buffer it doesn't need erase first. Simple reprogram it :-).

HTH,
  David

In past week I provide here test guide (http://www.willem.org/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1150136514/7#7) for your adapter with 27C400. I update now for 27C322 and your HW.
You can use any programmer, apply SW 0.97ja (http://www.willem.org/ZIP/epr097ja.zip)
Set 2 jumpers in position pcb3.
Set Jp1,Jp2 like you have in your pictures, Jp3 (down,Vpp), Jp6 (down) and Jp7(up) for 12.5V, Jp8 (up) for 5.6V, , dipswitch panel according picture in SW for  27C322 (PCB3 picture selected).
Adapter, set jumper 27C322. Strip connectors on adapter and programmer connected with cable, check direction.
Apply DC power supply +9..12 V, jumper in position Vdc.  
- SW 0.97ja , go Test H/W , jumpers remain as previously selected .
- Activate 32-Vcc. Measure voltage on socket 27C160/322 pin22 (+5.6). Load (~25mA) temporary line (resistor ~200 Ohm between pins 22 and 31), measure pin 22 during load .
- Activate one by one (!) adress signals A1..A21 on/off, measure on socket pins 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,41,40,39,38,37,36,35,34,33,2,1,42,32 according (on >4.0, except pin41 ~3.7 / off <0.6V).
-  Activate 24-OE, measure >4.0 on pin13.
- Activate one by one (!) data signals D0..D7 on/off, measure on socket pins 14,16,18,20,23,25,27,29 according (>4/<0.6).
- Activate 24-OE and 12-A0. Activate one by one (!) data signals D0..D7 on/off, measure on socket pins 15,17,19,21,24,26,28,30 according (>4/<0.6). OE and A0 off.
- Activate 22-CE on/off. Measure >4/<0.6 on pin11.
- Measure pin 13 (<0.6V). Activate 1-Vpp. Measure 12.5V. Load (~25mA) temporary line (resistor ~470..560 Ohm between pins 13 and 12), measure pin 13 during load .
- Tests finished. All signals off.
- Erase chip with UV light. Insert chip in socket 27C160/322 . Run blank check, read. Load file and program.  
Recomended reduce twp from default 140mks to 50..100mks.
- Inform test results and errors.
- Insert adapter with eprom after connections and SW startup only. Otherwise activ programmer signals (before SW startup)can damage chip  or change content  (no more erased-FF all).
- Programmers can work with SW 0.98d2, set jumpers in position pcb35 or pcb4 for other HW. Unfortunately no experience on this.
Programming schould work faster.
You can try, but I do not recomend 0.98d5 (with pcb45c). SW comes faster, and ...unstable (I had programmer in short term for tests and it was unstable with 0.98d5 on range of flash memory).

Quote:
I have no clue which model it is, and it didn't have documentation.

Unfortunately experience and info on 0.98dx and sivava's HW are not sufficient here in forum .

.
Sivava 4.5 board has jumpers pcb3b/pcb45. In pcb3b mode programmer is 0.97ja compatible, in pcb45 mode you can use 0.98d2..d5 only. In pcb45 mode adress load from PC is different, programming works faster. ) 0.98d2..d5 cannot be used for generic pcb3b/willem 3.1/4.x and ezoflash programmers.

This is correct. I indicate equal adapter tsop48b2 for ezoflash.
The same can do your T07 (16bit) and tsop48d2 on ezoflash. For 8/16 bit adapter select 29LVx00 8/16bit > 29LV320, for 16bit adapter select 16bit> 29F320.
Unfortunately SW support max 32Mb, you have to manage highest adress manually for programming and read. Often source file has content less than 32Mb starting from bottom adress and no need on 64Mb management.

What is exact chip type ? No tsop56 adapters available for pcb3/willem, probably you can use ezoflash+/tsop56a1 (only 16Mb SW support, highest adress management included in adapters jumpers).

I just got home, and the full Intel chip is TE28F640.

Give a full chip name. I think you have TE28F640J3 . This chip is supported (with tricks) on tsop56a1, some info in topic too.

Is there a way to still use my programmer and make my own adapter?

Probably you can make a adapter. SW for PCB4.5 0.98d2/d5 have listed 28F320/640J3 support, I am not sure it's working. This option was included in my cooperation with Kitti (SW author) in test SW , but latest version failed and then Kitti quit from project. I am not sure that sivava & partners made some progress here. I am not able to check this SW now, because other changes made this SW uniq for pcb3.5 and pcb4.5.

Hello,

I have the Willem 4.5 from sivava and I'm trying to find the best setting to read the chip 29GL064M90 and it's giving me a chip ID of Manufacture: 0x01 - AMD, Device Code: 0x7E. Currently I am using Adapter TSOP 48 (8/16 Bit) and software 0.97ja. I bought the whole TSOP All-In-One from Sivava. I can read the chip using 29LV100 as my selection, but others within this series will read it too and give me more information. Which is the best to read the whole chip and which is used for programming. I've looked on Ezo's site and his sheet shows a TSOP48b2 and d2 - what are the equivalents for me and my equipment? This chip came from a Linksys RTP300.

Another question is, with the sivava product, his adapters go upto a TSOP 48. I just got another device that uses a TSOP 56. Is there a way to still use my programmer and make my own adapter? I don't have the device with me now, but I think it's a 29F640 by Intel.

Thanks so much!

How about...

By: Tecno - 2006-05-07 16:50:37

... a willem programmer that works with pcmcia to parallel port adapters for once ?! I never got my willem original v4.0 to work with it and also my sivava 4.5 doesn't work either, the adapter that I have emulates a true EPP or SPP port and the computer recognises it, it wasn't made just with printers in mind when the company manufacturer it, only the leds that are suposed to lit when the willem is on, don't, I'm guessing Willem programmers use parallel port not only for data transfer but also for some kind of power needs also ? That's bad, because I wanted to use a small, cheap programmer on the go, with my laptop !

Hope to get some replies from Willem, DL or Ezo on this, since you might be the guys that can inform me better on why this occurs...

~I've wasted a lot of money on this just to work on my laptop with willem programmer and now I can't do it...

The chip is PMC Pm49FL002T-33JC.  Program version: 0.98D5
I can erase, read it. But I can't programming the chip.
Error message is: Error at 0x000000 Chip = 0xFF buffer = 0x94

Please help me, what is the problem.


I have the same problem and no solve it.

I have a LPC/FWH adapter and set the programer in 5V and 12,5 (vpp and vcc, no in this order). I suspect that this chip is protected by software.

How I get the data sheet of this chip?

thanks!

ezoflash+ and pcb3b have equal schematic basis and problems may appear the same.
Exist many ezoflash+ users and no problems in use, no problems with tsop48d2.

Hi, I need to know how to erase the following eprom's:

-> 27E512 ?

-> 27SF512 ?

I have a sivava dual-power willem, last version and I'm using the latest software release also.

I would like to know if the method for erasing both eproms is the same, or are there differences ?

Thanks for the help !

Dennis,

Many thanks for the offer of pics for the mods/adaptor boards....

I've got the sivava board, so dont think you have done amy mods on that one (you didnt mention it...)

However i will do the standard upgrades as mentioned above and at least other than the programming voltages it will stabalise the power a little more

Will get back when done (will probably take a few days....)

But surely, these could be fed direct off the 7805 on the board and powered at 5V tho? if fed directly from the voltage regulator then that would easilly give the 80ma that it requires?? ok the voltages would still be as the are at present, however the proper current would be there, meaning you probably wouldnt get the voltage drop.
If you're going to make any changes to the power supplies, you might as well fix everything.

Add clean support for low voltages by replacing the 7805 with an LM317, fix the voltage drop problem in the transistor used to switch VCC to the programming sockets, fix the problems with unreliable VPP (replace the step-up regulator with another LM317), disable the USB power option (you'll need to provide a higher input voltage and the USB power option never made sense anyway), remove any diodes used to route power (many dual powered boards seem to have them), and replace any logic chips that won't operate from 2.7-6.5V (i.e. 74HCT).

I believe the PCB4 is using some 74*54x type of buffers.   These might not be available in a logic family that will operate at above 6V.   74HC logic is a "better" choice than 74HCT (it will operate from 2-6V).

Fortunately for you, sivava puts the chips in sockets; unlike some other "cheap" clones.   Anyone who has had to replace a DIP12 switch will know what I mean...

Strangely enough there is a pair of jumpers on the board just to the left of the switch. They are labelled normal/29x040 (4Mbit) and 27c080 (8Mbit). Wonder if thats a typo on the muddle one and should be 27x040..... Might have to have a play tonight to see what difference it makes.....

None of my chips are "blank verified" with new s/w

By: toibs - 2006-04-12 23:59:09

At DL's request, thought i'd start a new topic on this one...

I have a sivava willem programmer (http://www.sivava.com/Product_A03.htm) - pcb4c i believe (not sure how to tell the difference, but it's IDENTICAL to the pic, and was bought directly from them). Not used it up until now, despite buying it 6 months ago (i was using an eprommer before).

However i've been trying to program several 27c040's and M27C4001's, however none ever come up as "empty" using 0.98D5 i.e. every single one (including new, unprogrammed ones) come up as "Device is not empty ($000000). However using 0.97ja seems to work ok.

I am using an external psu (12v 1000ma regulated). to power the board, and have the parallel port set as EPP.

Chips will read fine - no problems at all. However will not program. Switch setting set exactly as per the software.

anyone have any ideas why, or alternatively does anyone know what the latest version of software for the board is and where i can get it from please??

Thx
Paul

PS - EDIT : to add to the above, every time i try to program using either software i get the error "0x000000 chip 0xff Buffer 0x20"

VPP voltage drops under load

By: SteveVass - 2006-04-08 04:03:23

I have programmer that is similar to a PCB3B I think, it looks just like the one sold on Sivava.com.

I have previously been able to programme 2716 and 2732 eproms but now I get errors all the time.

When programming the 2732's the VPP voltage is 21v until the programming starts and then under load it drops down to about 5v.

I could replace some components around the step up regulator but I would rather put in a step down power supply, has anyone done this?

Does anyone have any tips on how to do this, I am planning to build the voltage supply on a separate board.

Thanks in advance

Steve

Re: Flashed a bad chip programmer is dead

By: DL - 2006-03-15 07:54:15

Hi Jason,

You need to do more testing to isolate the problem.

If you're not able to get the program to see the programmer, it could be a hardware configuration problem and the programmer might be fine.  Check your documentation to see how the parallel port should be configured.

Even if the programmer fails the simple hardware test, you can still enter the Test H/W tab and check the signals to the ZIF socket to make sure they're switching correctly.

If you can see that the program and computer are switching signals on the parallel port (measure the inputs of the tri-state buffers), you should be able to follow the signals to the ZIF socket.

Schematic and component diagrams should be available for dual powered PCB3 programmers.  The only programmers that don't have schematics available seem to be the enhanced universal (USB only powered, usually with sanded part numbers) or the PCB3.x and PCB4.x from Sivava.

HTH,
Dennis

Re: connecting tsop 48 adaptor to 4.1 board

By: EZo - 2006-03-12 13:47:54

28F160C3T is 16 bit chip and you can use only T01/T07 adapters.
Set jumpers on T07 according 28Fx00 picture. Set jumper Open=3.6V , on programmer set 3.3V voltage.
Set programmer jumper Normal/A18, A19 to Normal > Vpp will be available on ZIF32 pin1.
Don't use cable supplied with sivava adpters on willem, connectors are different. Find A19 on T07 (pin 7), find A19 on willem (pin4) and connect them with wire.
Use 0.97ja, selected device 16bit 28F160C3T. Expect valid get ID response 0x0089 Intel, 0x88C2 28F160C3T.

Yes, chip sectors are protected after power-up. SW commands include unprotect and chip can be erased and programmed.

Re: connecting tsop 48 adaptor to 4.1 board

By: DL - 2006-03-08 19:43:43

Hi,

I don't have any TSOP48 adapters, so I can't tell you for certain how to connect.   Maybe someone with direct experience will chime in...

But, this should work regardless of how the sivava adapters get A19.

On the 4.1:
Set the Normal/A18,19 header to A18,19.

Set the 7 pin header to A19 and the pin below (there are 2 A19 pins, use the one closes to the unmarked pin between A18 and A19).   (This will get A19 to pin 1 on the ZIF socket.)

Connect A19 and A20 from the 7 pin header to your adapter.
Make sure that all other jumpers are in their "normal" positions.

You can check for proper connection to your adapter by checking A18-20 in the Test H/W tab and measuring the voltages on your TSOP adapter.   Set the programmer for your 16Mb device to do this.

If things check out, you could remove the A19 connection to your adapter to see if this was required.

You could also connect A21 to be safe.   It might be used on word wide devices.

HTH,
Dennis
