Vintage EPROM 1702 Read Only Memory
My Museum Blog http://www.microcomputermuseum.com
The EPROM was very important in the development of microcomputers because it gave the designer a way to load his custom program into non-volatile memory. LCF School LCFschoolThis program would always be ready to run at start up and not need to be loaded each time the computer was turned on.
An EPROM, or Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory, is a type of memory chip that retains its data when its power supply is switched off. In other words, it is non-volatile. It is an array of floating-gate transistors individually programmed by an electronic device that supplies higher voltages than those normally used in digital circuits. Once programmed, an EPROM can be erased only by exposing it to strong ultraviolet light. That UV light usually has a wavelength of 253.7nm (for optimum erasure time) and belongs to the UVC range of UV light. EPROMs are easily recognizable by the transparent fused quartz window in the top of the package, through which the silicon chip can be seen, and which permits UV light during erasing.(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)-----------------
