The GQ-4X supports most of the Macronix branded chips, but it doesnt have the MX29F1610 listed. It is pinout compatible with the MX29L3211 chip (minus the A20 pin), so is there something I can add to the device.txt to add support for this chip?

Yes. You can try:

He said MX29F1610 not the MX29L161

The 29F161 is a 5v chip, not 3.6

i want burn MX 29f1610MC i have adaptor adp-019 v4

i take this:

Name="MX29F1610T*PSOP44",ID="C2F1",Class="MX29L3211",CodeSize="2097152",Category="FLASH",MFG="Macronix",Adapter="ADP-019 V4",VCC="5V",RVpp="5V",TempUnprotect="Yes,False",Platform="GQ-4X",Message="Set the adapter to 5V jumper position. J2 on 28F, J1 on 29LV160 positions";

But it's not good the j2 on 28f return unkown id, but j2 on 32l return the good id .

i think j1 on 29lv160 is not good , because i have no erase and no prog ?

It should always there.

No, you do not need to reinstall, this checkbox will be enabled after you select the chip from the device list.

i think is the pinout rewiring because if you compare the 29l3211 and the 29f1610 data sheet you see

Yes. I read that, the only difference is the Pin 44. The MX29F1610 Pin 44 is WP- and it needs to be connected to the VCC of the chip when erase and write.
Other than that, all commands and pins are same.

Therotically it should work. Since your test fail, so I need a chip to find out why.

You can still try to connect that chip pin 44 to the VCC 5V pin on adapter and see if it makes different.

The picture is connect the Pin 44 to the programmer WP pin.

One thing i notice is when you put the 29lv160 adapter it tells to active the 5 volt ,but you can see that the chip i am using the 29lv160tmc-90 is a 3.0-3.6v chip so how the programmer tells me to activate the 5volt jumper on the adapter?
With the 5v active reads but donīt write ,meanwhile i will try to set 3.3v jumper to see if i can program the chip.

see datasheet:

The 5V jumper on adapter means adapter has no control on VCC. The VCC controlled by programmer.

In this case, the programmer is going to adjust the VCC to 3.6V.

The 5V/3.6V VCC jumper on adapter has its story, it mainly for a backward compatibility design. The old Willem programmer has no automatic VCC control, all the voltages controlled by combination of jumpers, include the adapter VCC jumper.

The GQ-4X has automatic VCC control. So, it adjusts the VCC based on the chip voltage. But all adapters are compatible with old willem programmer.

wELL i have a willem and i recently i bought a gq-4x ,strangely just the old dog true willem 4.5c has been efective on reading all tipes of chips,i had an usue that gq-4x didnīt read a clone chip of 27c4001 and the willem did maybe because of the code id ,if the programmer canīt detect a valid cod id from the manufacturer wonīt read the chip,i think that could be the cause.
i had bought a gq-4x serial adapter and this from the net

h**p://www.ebay.com/itm/PSOP44-V4-for-AM29LV160-MX29L3211-PSOP44-DIP44-programmer-adapter-converter-/221498913746?ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

this till now seems a copy adapter for 29lv160 and i couldnīt get it to read neither one of my 10 new 29lv160tmc-90 chips.

what i mean is that in some cases the old hardware donīdisappoint ,and makes me wonder if is a good idea to spend about 60 euros on a new willem programmer.
Because you pay money and get bad results ,and in some cases low or no support..

Sory my bad english

Best Regards

The adapter you used is not tested and confirmed by MCUmall on GQ-4X. The correct adapter for this chip from MCUmall is ADP-019 V4.

So basicaly an expensive Copy of the original

they should have copied better

They told they were go tho see what is wrong but i doubt ,i will put it work ok.
If the shipping cost werenīt so expensive for my country i would buy the official from McuMall

thank you very much for your Help

hi guys,

maybe i find a way to solve this issue.

Ezoflash has a adapter which is almost the same lime the adp-19 from gqx4.

In this schematic he uses one 6k8 resistor to VCC to set the WP Pin to high i think.

Could anyone check this?!

Set the same settings from 29L3211 chip and solder a 6k8 resistor to VCC.

thanks

Yes WP = Write Protect on your MX29L1610. Is your MX29L1610 5V?
You need to pull it high.

I'd like to know how this can be programmed on Willem GQ-4x I have an ADP-019 v4.1 adapter and MX29F1610-10 chips. I've tried using this device.

Name="MX29F1610T*PSOP44",ID="C2F1",Class="MX29L3211",CodeSize="2097152",Category="FLASH",MFG="Macronix",Adapter="ADP-019 V4",VCC="5V",RVpp="5V",TempUnprotect="Yes,False",Platform="GQ-4X",Message="Set the adapter to 5V jumper position. J2 on 28F, J1 on 29LV160 positions";

Can get chip to ID, ERASE, and Blank Check with J1 and J2 set for 29L3211. I connected a resistor between pin 44 (WP) to +5 on the adp adapter and I still cannot get it to write. Is there anyone that can help resolve this long running issue?

Got that number? I assume that it has been resolved to some extent. There seems to be an addition of the chip to some extent as well as an image to show how to setup the adapter to flash it. Right?
