So, I ordered an EPROM Programmer (Programmer TL866A) that was mentioned on this board and it arrived today.  I've never used an EPROM Programmer, so I'd like to practice burning the EPROM on a spare chip and keep the original as-is until I understand the process better.  Anyone know what I'd need to order (on Amazon preferably, since I have Prime shipping) to have a spare chip (or 5-pack) to practice with?  Also, do I need a UV light to erase them with?

 

TIA!

It depends on what kind of chips you purchased.   EPROM's yes, need a UV eraser, EEPROMS, no.  It's one of the reasons I bought a bunch of UberGROMS and 49F040's from Ksarul.  Life is too short to wait on a UV eraser!  (IMHO).

 

You can also READ the chip and save the data to your hard drive to have a backup in case you FUBAR anything.

 

In the case of the TIPI, yeah, you'll need a UV eraser for that chip.

 

You can get one fairly cheap << HERE >>

Not that you need someone telling you how to spend even more money, but I highly recommend purchasing an IC extractor tool.

It may save you from bending or breaking pins on your IC's.

Thanks Omega, I got out lucky.  Inside the TI866 box was a Chip Extraction tool.  I'm sure it's cheaply made, but it worked perfectly for me.  I haven't used one of these since the early 90's :)

Whatever you do, don't waste time and money on these things…

Those will bend your pins all to hell.  Much better off with a small flat blade screw driver and taking your time.  In fact that's my preferred method, given this thing as the alternative I can afford.  :)
