I have spend days searching for a DIP32 E/EPROM or FLASH that meets
the following specs:
3.3V, DIP32 / DIL32

Can you point me to one that actually can be purchased?

There is nothing in production that I can see. Almost all is 5V or
PLCC32 for 3.3V.

I have some NICs that use DIP32 for boot prom but are 3.3V - I have no idea why they would design it that way, but hey - what can you do.

Any recommendations welcome.


Byte me!

the voltage should be controlled by programmer, not the adapter. If your chip is DIP chip, then you do not need the adapter.

Sure for programming it is the programmer. But for normal operation it is for example the NIC controller (e.g. Realtec RTL8139C) which uses a 3.3V boot PROM/FLASH/EEPROM.

In cases like that the VCC is actually 3.3V not 5V. This becomes more and more common. And in one NIC I actually have a DIP EPROM socket that is 3.3V powered - escapes me why anyone would design it that way in the first place - maybe because the DIP sockets are cheaper than the PLCC.

The real problem here is that there are no DIP FLASH/PROM/EPROM/EEPROMs I could find.

If you have no luck, just buy the PLCC32 and use an adapter.

Something like:

32 pin dip, 3v 512kb

Found on a NIC I was just replacing and thought of this post.
