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 The recommended erasure procedure is exposure to UV light at 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 first generation devices were fabricated with the p-MOS techology. Stored charge on these isolated gates changed their properties. The switching state of the field-effect transistor is controlled by the voltage on the control gate of the transistor. This prompted larger capacity devices to introduce epeom “signature mode”, allowing the manufacturer and device to be identified by the EPROM programmer. Leaving the die of such a chip exposed to eprlm can also change behavior in unexpected ways when moving from a windowed part used for development to a non-windowed part for production.

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. Computer memory that can retrieve stored data after a power supply has been turned off and back on is called non-volatile. Storing data in the memory requires erom a given address and applying a higher voltage to the transistors. This method of erasure allows complete testing and correction of a complex memory array before the package is finally sealed.
Since the whole epro, array is exposed, all the memory is erased at the same time. A control gate electrode is deposited and further oxide covers it. The effects of this process on the reliability of the part would have required extensive testing so they decided on the window instead.
Each bit of the word is a 1 or 0, depending on the storage transistor being switched on or off, conducting or non-conducting. For large volumes of parts thousands of pieces or moremask-programmed ROMs are the lowest cost devices to produce.
EPROM programming is slow compared to other forms of memory. Exposure time for sunlight of one week or three years for room fluorescent lighting may cause erasure.
When the high voltage is removed, the electrons are trapped on the electrode. Retrieved from ” https: Each field-effect transistor consists of a channel in the semiconductor body of the device. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Development of the EPROM memory cell started with investigation of faulty integrated circuits where the gate connections of transistors had broken. 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.

To retrieve data from the EPROM, the address represented by the values at the address pins of the EPROM is decoded and used to connect one word usually an 8-bit byte of storage to the output buffer amplifiers.
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.
The process epom several minutes for UV lamps of convenient sizes; sunlight would erase a chip in weeks, and indoor fluorescent lighting over several years. In effect, the stored charge on the floating gate allows the threshold voltage of the transistor to be programmed. 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.

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. 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. Often this label was foil-backed to ensure its opacity to UV.
The erasing window must be kept covered with an opaque label to prevent accidental erasure by the UV found in sunlight or camera flashes. 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. 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.
Like EPROM chips, such microcontrollers came in windowed expensive versions that were used for debugging and program development. Erasure, however, has to be accomplished by non-electrical methods, since the gate electrode is not accessible electrically. Non-volatile memory Integrated circuits Computer memory.
