TI and the MiniPro TL866 EPROM Programmer

Recommended Posts

minipro_setup685 told me my 866A might be a fake (even though it meets none of the visible criteria they show, down to the PCB markings).  It just asked if I'd like to view this info and be reminded about it in the future.

Mine also did that when I made the final update, but it has been working well for me too.

Norton says it is a "safe" website so I don't think that is the issue. I get a "website not responding" (i.e., timing out) message. It is the same whether I go through the main site or the forum.

Me too atrax, I get the same timed out message(and have for awhile now), I've tried IE, Edge and Chrome. On two different machines.

I wonder if they are still in business. I have been getting this for the past several days.

I think your problem is with HTTPS vs. HTTP. Change it to HTTP.

OK, I tried Lee's solution with no success. The link to the forums in post #260 would not work.

So just now I retried and both the forum link and the 'Update on line' menu item both work!

I didn't change anything in the last couple of hours?...and I have not been able to get to the 

site in about 2 weeks. LOL

It appears that the problems with the site has been resolved - at least temporarily. I have been able to get through easily for the past few days.

Rooting through the documentation for the T56 turned up an interesting thing today: it is capable of programming up to 25V parts. This is perfect for older 27-series parts, but unfortunately they still don't support 25-series stuff. . .

 

This programmer will program any EPROM/Flash chip used in the various cartridge boards (even the 27C160 and its flash work-alikes from Macronix) and the ATMEGA 1284P. I may have to add one of these to my Eprommer collection. . .and test it with my MBM27C4000 adapters.

There really aren't a lot of 25-series chips that apply to the TI. While the TMS2532 is nominally a 25V chip, it programs very nicely at 21V which leads me to believe that the TMS2532 (25V) and TMS2532A (21V) are actually the same chip. They both program at 21V as to the Motorola and Hitachi variants.

 

The older 27-series chips are, in the main, programmable at 21V. In fact, some are even 12.5V chips.  I'm quite satisfied with my TL866CS for the present.
