SST39VF1601 please help a newbie

By: koolit - 2007-09-15 19:18:50

Hello to all.
Obviously, this is my 1st post and I'm so glad I found this forum while researching for SST39VF1601.
I am looking forward to buy a Willem Programmer but I really have no idea which one should work for SST39VF1601.
Had spent my entire life in Electronics but haven't done such a thing.
Would appreciate any recommendations or suggestions.

TIA

If you want to program flash chips try EZO's http://www.ezoflash.com/
adapter for SST39VF1601 is TSOP48d2

Thank you for your input, guys!
I might consider EZO+ programmer.

My plan for now is to duplicate a known good SST39VF1601 by extracting the info from it without causing any harm and burnt it to a blank one. Hope EZO+ programmer will do just that.

I'll be back as soon as I got everything on hand. cheers...

Willem 4.1 or EZO + sivava T01 & T07 will do what you are after !

Greetings and Many thanks to all.

I just received my PCB4.5C, TO7 and TO1 adapters from sivava. However, the package didn't come with enough information for me to flash SST39VF1601. NP reading the chip but always getting error programming it. It just suddenly worked after fiddling with the jumpers and of course with some useful infos here.

Bottom line is, it worked for me and friend is very happy knowing his Extreme is back in business.

I can only post a picture (if allowed) to whoever needs to know the jumper settings of the like. Some of them have no label and I have no idea what are those for.

Neeways, this Site Rocks and once again, thank you all for the help.

I tried but can't do just that or perhaps I don't know how to upload image on this forum.
