Eprom Programmer

Post by gnomx » March 27th, 2020, 3:28 pm

Hi there.
I'm looking for a cheap Arcade Eprom programmer that allow me burn binary files into them ( Neogeo & Multi REG bios Naomi mainly )

Surfing on web , I found two programmer that are good for me :

1- RT809H RT809F EPROM Universal Extremely Fast USB Programmer
Here link : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3300051 ... hweb201603_

2- PRO GQ-4X V4
Here link : http://www.mcumall.com/comersus/store/c ... e_vignette

They cost about 100$ , but what is the best / beast ?

Neither one supports the 42 pin EPROMs that Neo Geo carts and many arcade boards use, so you probably don't want either one.

It costs a little more, but I strongly recommend a Wellon VP-598 instead. It'll handle pretty much anything you can throw at it.

A GQ-4X and the 16bit adapter below will do what you want.

I'd recommend getting a better programmer though as you'll you'll probably want to program devices it doesn't support at some point in the future.

Yep, I think that Amazon setup you linked will work since it includes the 42 pin adapter.

Ok many thanks.
I suppose that External Power Supply is a must , right?

In order to burn them correctly , I need some settings in particular?

Thanks.

If you need to program 42 pin EPROMs, no.
