I have succesfully programmed some Texas Instruments TMS2532JL eproms but now am trying to do the same with some Hitachi HN462532G's. They appear to write without issue but the verify fails. After all of this the chip verifies as blank. I have tried erasing some and trying again, same result. I have tried different writing speeds too. +2 results in a failure writing at 4%, 0 and below writes succesfully (but is blank afterwords).

I have tried various USB ports, cables, and an external power supply on the programmer with no change in result.

Advice? Thank you.

Writing... Buffer
Elapsed time: 12.90 seconds.
Device write completed OK
ID check skipped
Verifying... Buffer
Verify Failed, Address=0x000000, Device=0xFF, Buffer=0xF5
Verify Failed
Elapsed time: 3.10 seconds.

Yes, mine are from here www.ebay.com/itm/391516360336
If yours too, most likely they are defective eproms. I will buy some HN462532G eproms from another supplier and I'll tell you if they work.




I have buy another HN462532G set from other Chinese provider and this second time I have programmed them with no problem. The first batch was, as anniel said, chinese junk.

Some are more sophisticate and sandblast the chip and engrave the new part # for pricier chips, I have a few rare IDT RISC fakes like this.



Damn chinese fakers!

I bought a vintage EPROM programmer that supports this chip and got the exact same result, won't take new programming. One interesting thing though... the vintage programmer detected some weren't blank after the GQ-4x4 said they were blank. It was able to reliably read data from EPROMs when the GQ found none. The reason for all of this? Who knows, and I don't really care. Moving on...

The software voltage diagnostic check the actual voltage value.

Same GND, isolate the ZIF from the device VPP (paper or Kapton "V"), use only the write command.

Yes the software voltage diagnostic gives the actual voltage values but borderline chips can draw more current than can be supplied by the GQ-4X.



Also true.

By any chance are yours from China on Ebay? Mine are - I wonder if they are fake, re-labeled, or perhaps were over exposed to UV and ruined?



That is certainly possible.

I have tried different writing speeds too. +2 results in a failure writing at 4%, 0 and below writes succesfully (but is blank afterwords).

I have tried various USB ports, cables, and an external power supply on the programmer with no change in result.

Advice? Thank you.

Bad chips?

Yes, inject VPP, write, disconnect VPP. While at it also have a look at VCC.
After the write cycle(s) you can proceed to the verify command in a regular manner.
HawaiinPunch Posted - 06/21/2017 : 13:03:36
Okay, I'll consider this as a potential option. Does the external VPP need to be injected at a specific time or just inject VPP, write, disconnect VPP?

Same GND, isolate the ZIF from the device VPP (paper or Kapton "V"), use only the write command.

I know ZLM but a good multimeter can get an almost accurate measurement (a scope is better).

Yes a dead EPROM can give the same symptoms bu many flaky chips where revived by injecting VPP and/or VCC directly to the pins.

Yes the software voltage diagnostic gives the actual voltage values but borderline chips can draw more current than can be supplied by the GQ-4X.
ZLM Posted - 06/20/2017 : 14:54:06
The VPP only on when needed during the writing. It is pulses when writing. So, the multi-meter may not work correctly in this case.

Since this is a confirmed chip in the device list, then you may need to make sure the chip has no problem. Many dead EPROMs has same symptoms.

The software voltage diagnostic check the actual voltage value.

Can the VPP be provided externally by use of an adapter that bypasses the programmers VPP?

I tested again, VPP is 21 volts, with and without an external power supply. It should be 25v.

Yes, mine are from here www.ebay.com/itm/391516360336
If yours too, most likely they are defective eproms. I will buy some HN462532G eproms from another supplier and I'll tell you if they work.
