The standard version of the JED PROM Programmer costs $A300 ($A330 inc GST). This runs under DOS, or under W3.1, W95 and W98 (all versions). (If you run W2000, NT or XP, see below.)
The latest release of the programmer PP.EXE file can be downloaded as an upgrade for all 5.08 or 5.09 user's (DOS/W95/98 or W2000/NT/XP via Direct I/O.) Just copy over the existing 5.08 or 5.09 PP.EXE. The only difference between this and 5.09 is a bug fix for programming 27C512 PROMs where some users have experienced verify errors due to a timing error on fast machines, including some laptops. PP.EXE (5.10)
You can also download the latest complete PROM programmer software suite 5.10: PPv510.ZIP (124KB).
Even if you do not have a JED PROM Programmer, you will find the file format conversion utilities of use. We hope you will buy a PROM programmer to make them even more so!
Note: This release is limited to a printer port address of 378. If this is a limitation to anyone, please contact JED.
PLCC32 to DIP32 adaptors (two styles) available, made in Australia.
These use ejector sockets for easy PLCC insertion and removal.Two varieties are available:
Here's how it works ... an I/O access program called "Direct I/O" has been licensed by JED for distribution to users, which loads into the W2000/NT/XP system and allows specific I/O locations and memory locations to be accessible to pre-setup programs. This program is set up to allow the I/O needed by the JED PROM programmer (the PC printer port) to be accessible without being barred by W2000/NT/XP, and to allow certain BIOS access. A license for this program (and a CD containing an installable copy) is available from JED for $A60. To go with this, a free upgrade to PROM software 5.10 is also supplied. (This is necessary to make it compatible in one minor aspect.)
This whole package can be sent by mail anywhere for $A10, so the total upgrade is thus $A60 for Direct I/O, $A10 post = $70 plus GST $7.00, i.e. a total of $A77. Call/fax/email/post JED a cheque or credit card details for $77 and we will send it out.
We can also supply via email, saving postage, for $A66, inc GST.
PROM Eraser also available from JED
This is a high quality unit from Hi-Lo, the "Chiprase". It has two holding areas for PROMs: one is a pull-out tray, and one is a lift-up lid allowing a further row of PROMs to be loaded up-side-down, making use of the other side of the UV tube. A built-in timer times the erase time.
It is $A275 ($A302.50 inc GST) including an Australian-pinout plug
to power it.
