Willem

Burning EPROMs using willem based programmers.

Shopping List

You will need:

  • PC with a IBM parallel port
  • Willem based programmer
  • Power supply (optional, see below)
  • EPROM, UV or electronic erasable
  • Network card with a ROM socket or ROM-card so you can use/test your new burned EPROM
  • Operating system that can run Windows 32bit programs
  • Programmer software (look on your programmers homepage)

Setup

Hardware

Connect your programmer to your computer and a power supply.

“I would recommend that you use a external power supply, a wall wart, instead of USB when given the choice. My experience is that EPROMs needs more power than USB can provide” — Pär Moberg

An erased EPROM

Software

Windows 9x/Me/NT/2000/XP

Extract/install the programmer software and start programming

Linux

Install Wine (optional, PlayOnLinux)

“If you are going to use more Windows software than the Willem programmer software, I would recommend to install PlayOnLinux as well since we are going to need some Wine magic to get the parallel port to work” — Pär Moberg

Wine

Wine is usually included in the packet repository of your distribution but the latest development releases for the big dists can be found at http://www.winehq.org/download/ with good instructions.

PlayOnLinux

PlayOnLinux is target to gamers but has the feature of handling wineprefixes
