If I purchase one of these DIP8 to SOIC 8 24CXXX and others with Wells ZIF. will I be able to program the following chips?S25FL016A0LMFI011

25FL016A0LMFI011

S25FL016A

25FL016A

I am quite new to all this, but I am sure some expert will be able to tell if its possible and if so, how to go about it.

Hi,

Willem 4.5 doesn't support serial devices.  PCB4.5 does, but not sure if support has been added for high capacity devices.

actually I might have pcb4.5, its the circuict board with psu input and 25way connector fitted, is this correct ?

All Willem type programmers would fit this description.

A Willem 4.5 has a TSOP48 socket on the board.  PCB4.5 is an improved PCB3 variant.  Increasing numbers don't mean better (i.e. PCB5.0 isn't necessarily better than PCB4.5).  These variants are being developed independently, but are all based on the original open source "Willem" design.  Some, like Sivava, have made their variants closed (no schematics or component diagrams available).

I checked the most recent 0.98* program I had installed (0.98d6) and it appears to support the devices you mentioned as 25x160.  I don't use serial devices and don't have any 25x160 to test with, so can't help further.

BTW, support for serial devices doesn't use the logic changes Sivava made to improve speed for parallel devices.  So as long as your programmer has a socket for serial devices, you can use Sivava's 0.98* programs which have more support for serial devices.  There are also some other programs for serial devices that are compatible with Willem programmers.

HTH,

Thanks for the valuble information, where can I get hold of 0.98d6 software?
