EEVblog #411 - MiniPro TL866 Universal Programmer Review

(1/411) > >>

Is a sub $50 universal programmer from ebay any good?
Dave checks out the MiniPro TL866 programmer:


Not bad for the price. On "Select Device" (around 14:00) I could see "Logic IC" (bottom choice) - does it test and/or autodetect 7400 and 4000 series chips?

Well, just downloaded the software to check it out and can answer my own question - it does test quite a few logic chips.

Am I correct that this is the Gizmo I would use to read the firmware off the eprom of my digital readout that is no longer supported so I could save the data and also write a backup chip?

You are correct, as long as your chip is supported by the Gizmo.

Dave, .chm file is a help file for the software, I suspect one on CD is english, the downloaded version of software comes with chinese help only. Not that you need help if you used programming software in the past but could be useful sometimes.
