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 same chip came in somewhat cheaper opaque OTP packages for production. 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.

When the high voltage is removed, the electrons are trapped on the electrode. Photons of the UV light cause ionization within the silicon oxide, which allow the stored charge on the floating gate to dissipate.

Cambridge University Press, p. Presence of a voltage on this gate creates a conductive channel in the transistor, switching it on.

Views Read Edit View history. Each bit of the word is a 1 or 0, depending on the storage transistor being switched on or off, conducting or non-conducting.

Retrieved from ” https: 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 eeprok several thousand cycles.


EPROM programming is slow compared to other forms of memory. This page was last edited on 8 Novemberat Source and drain contacts are made to regions at the end of the channel. As the quartz window is expensive to make, OTP one-time programmable chips were introduced; here, the die is mounted in an opaque package so it cannot be erased after programming — this also eliminates the need to test the erase function, further reducing cost.

The programming process is not electrically reversible.

ST Microelectronics

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 anneal semiconductor alterations caused by the X-rays. It was soon eepro that small-volume production was economical with EPROM parts, particularly when the advantage of rapid upgrades of firmware was considered.

Even dust inside the package can prevent some cells from being erased. The process takes several minutes for UV lamps of convenient eepeom sunlight would erase a chip in weeks, and indoor fluorescent lighting over several years.

The erasing window eperom be kept covered with an opaque label to prevent accidental erasure by the UV found in sunlight or camera flashes. International Trade Commission, ed. The first generation devices were fabricated with the p-MOS techology. A control gate electrode is deposited and further oxide covers it.


By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Since the whole memory array is exposed, all the memory is erased at the same time.

This method of erasure allows complete testing and correction of a complex memory array before the package is finally sealed. This prompted larger capacity devices to introduce a “signature mode”, allowing the manufacturer and device to be identified by the EPROM programmer.

The effects of this process on the reliability of the part would have required extensive testing so they decided on the window instead. Like EPROM chips, such microcontrollers came in windowed expensive versions that were used for debugging and program development.

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. The recommended erasure procedure is exposure to UV light at Once programmed, an EPROM can be erased by exposing it to strong ultraviolet light source such as from a mercury-vapor light.
