For large volumes of parts thousands of pieces or moremask-programmed ROMs are the lowest cost devices to produce. Computer memory that can retrieve stored data after a power supply has been turned off epron back on is called non-volatile.

In effect, the stored charge on the floating gate allows the threshold voltage of the transistor to be programmed. Leaving the die of such a chip exposed to light can also change behavior in unexpected ways when moving from a windowed part used for development to a non-windowed part for production. This creates an avalanche discharge of electrons, which have enough energy to pass through the insulating oxide layer and accumulate on the gate electrode. The programming process is not electrically reversible.

In other words, to erase your EPROM, you would first have to X-ray it and then put it in an oven at about degrees Celsius to eprok semiconductor alterations caused by the X-rays.

Once programmed, an EPROM can be erased by exposing it to strong ultraviolet light source such as from a mercury-vapor light. Paper data storage Drum memory Magnetic-core memory Plated wire memory Core rope memory s Thin-film memory Disk pack Twistor memory — Bubble memory 2725 Floppy disk This method of erasure allows complete testing and correction of a complex memory array before the package is finally sealed. In 2726 projects Wikimedia Commons. Stored charge on these isolated gates changed their properties.


Even dust inside the package can prevent some cells from being erased.

EPROM – Wikipedia

While parts of the same size from different manufacturers are compatible in read mode, different manufacturers added different and sometimes multiple programming modes leading to subtle differences in the programming process.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. A control gate electrode is deposited and further oxide covers it. When the high voltage is removed, the electrons are trapped on the electrode.

International Trade Commission, ed. EPROMs had a limited but large eptom of erase cycles; the silicon dioxide around the gates would accumulate damage from each cycle, making the chip unreliable after several thousand cycles. As the quartz window is expensive to make, OTP one-time programmable chips were introduced; here, the die is mounted in an epron package so perom cannot be erased after programming — this also eliminates the need to test the erase function, further reducing cost.

IC – 256 kbit EPROM (pulls)

The switching state of the field-effect transistor is controlled by the voltage on the control gate of the transistor. 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.


The erasing window must be kept covered with an opaque label to prevent accidental erasure by the UV found in sunlight or camera flashes. Magnetic tape Hard disk drive.


The floating-gate electrode has no connections to other parts of the integrated circuit and sprom completely insulated by the surrounding layers of oxide. Shining ultraviolet light on any part of an unpackaged device causes a photocurrent to flow from the floating gate back to the silicon substrate, thereby discharging the gate to its initial, uncharged condition photoelectric effect.

An insulating layer of oxide is grown over the channel, then a conductive silicon or aluminum gate electrode is deposited, and a further thick layer of oxide elrom deposited over the gate electrode. This page was last edited on 8 Novemberat Since the whole memory array is exposed, all the memory is erased at the same time.

The first generation devices were fabricated with the p-MOS techology. The process takes several minutes for UV lamps of convenient sizes; sunlight would erase a chip in weeks, and indoor fluorescent lighting over several years. Erasure, however, has 2256 be accomplished by non-electrical methods, since the gate electrode is not accessible electrically.

27256 – 27256 256K EPROM Datasheet

Cambridge University Press, p. Often this label was foil-backed to ensure its opacity to UV. Like EPROM chips, such microcontrollers came in windowed expensive versions that were used for debugging and program development. It was soon found that small-volume production was economical with EPROM parts, particularly when the advantage of rapid 227256 of firmware was considered.
