Leaving the die 272566 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. Initially, it was thought that the EPROM would be too expensive for mass production use and that it would be confined to development only.
This method of erasure allows complete testing and correction of a complex memory array before the package is finally sealed. Digital Design and Fabrication. The programming process is not electrically reversible. Retrieved from ” https: Like EPROM chips, such microcontrollers came in windowed expensive versions that were used for debugging and program development.
A control gate electrode is deposited and further oxide covers it. Once programmed, an EPROM can be erased by exposing it to strong ultraviolet light source such as from a mercury-vapor light.
Because higher-density parts have little exposed oxide between the layers of interconnects and gate, ultraviolet erasing becomes less practical for very large memories.
The same chip came in somewhat cheaper opaque OTP packages for production.

While parts of the same size from different manufacturers are compatible in read mode, different manufacturers added different and sometimes multiple programming modes epromm to subtle differences in the programming process. From Wikipedia, the wprom encyclopedia. Non-volatile memory Integrated circuits Computer memory.
All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from October Commons category link from Wikidata Wikipedia articles with GND identifiers. A programmed EPROM retains its data for a minimum of ten to twenty years,  with many still retaining data after 35 or more years, and can be read an unlimited number of times without affecting the lifetime.
EPROMs had a limited but large number of erase cycles; the silicon dioxide around the gates would accumulate damage from each cycle, making the chip unreliable after several thousand cycles.
Cambridge University Press, p. In other words, to erase 72256 EPROM, you would first have to X-ray it and then put it in an oven at about degrees Celsius to anneal semiconductor alterations caused by the X-rays.

When the high voltage is removed, the electrons are trapped on the electrode. However, these require many weeks lead time to make, since the artwork for an IC mask layer must be altered to store data on the ROMs. EPROM programming is slow compared to other forms of memory. To erase the data stored in the array of transistors, ultraviolet light is directed onto the die.
Computer memory that can retrieve stored data after a power supply has been turned off and back on is called non-volatile. This page was last edited on 8 Novemberat Paper data storage Drum memory Magnetic-core memory Plated wire memory Core rope memory s Thin-film memory Disk pack Twistor memory — Bubble memory — Floppy disk 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 is deposited over the gate electrode.
This creates an avalanche discharge of electrons, which have enough energy to pass through the insulating oxide layer and accumulate on the gate electrode. Exposure time for sunlight of one week or three years for room fluorescent lighting may cause erasure.
Presence of a voltage on this gate creates a conductive channel in the transistor, switching it on.
International Trade Commission, ed. The floating-gate electrode has wprom connections to other parts of the integrated circuit and is completely insulated by the surrounding layers of oxide.
It was soon found that small-volume production was economical with EPROM parts, particularly when the advantage of rapid upgrades of firmware was considered. EPROMs are easily recognizable by the transparent fused quartz window in the top of the package, through which the silicon chip is visible, and which permits exposure to ultraviolet light during erasing.
However, as this was not universal, programmer software also would allow manual setting of the manufacturer and device type of the chip to ensure proper programming.
Each bit of the word is a 1 or 0, depending on the storage transistor being switched on or off, conducting or non-conducting. The erasing window must be kept covered with an opaque label to prevent accidental erasure by the UV found in sunlight or camera flashes.
This prompted larger capacity devices to introduce a “signature mode”, allowing the manufacturer and device to eprkm identified by the EPROM programmer.
Erasure, however, has to be accomplished by non-electrical methods, since the gate electrode is not accessible electrically. Source and drain contacts are made to regions at the end of the sprom. For large volumes of parts thousands of pieces or moremask-programmed ROMs are the lowest cost devices to produce.
Since the whole memory array is exposed, all the memory is erased at the same time. 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. Magnetic tape Hard disk drive. Archived PDF from the original on Views Read Edit View history.
Even dust inside the package can prevent some cells from being erased. Often this label was foil-backed to ensure its opacity to UV. In effect, the stored charge on the floating gate allows the threshold voltage of the transistor to be programmed.
Development of the EPROM memory cell started with investigation of faulty integrated circuits where the gate connections of transistors had erom.
