Does it not work using the 28F512 setting?

Looking at the datasheets for the AMD Am28F512 and ST M28F512, it appears that they are pin-compatible. Both utilize 5V Vcc and 12V Vpp. You should be able to program the ST by selecting the AMD part.

Hi to everyone, I'm new on this forum and I'm a new owner of TL866 too. Because I'm a Linux user I've checked first if TL866 works with Linux. Here is the time for greetings for radioman - man u did really good piece of work. But, there is a few to do yet. So, I've made small improvements into the linux version of radioman's tl866 software (ex. just erase chip) and (just when I polish the code - it's pretty ugly now) I want to share it. And I hope there 'll be a lot more to do to follow by original software, and even more. A propos - does anyone decompile MiniPro.exe? The mystery of TSOP48 and ATtiny13 is still a secret? I have original TSOP V3, but I'm a GNU follower and try to help if I can.
Besides, I have a question about TL866 and 25Q64 (Winbond 25Q64FVSIG). Reading this chip takes about 98 seconds, it is less than 90kB/s - how does it corresponds to USB 12MBps? I know, that "burst mode" is not fastest mode, but 90kB is even much less than Low Speed (1.5MBs) and old Willem Eprom Programmer. Autoelectric - shame on You.
Next topic is PIC18 in the programmer. I see, there's not too much space for new code - what Autoelectric is going to do? Stuck on supported chip list? No more new ones?
Ok, it's time to inspect the code...

Again many thanks to radioman and vdudouyt.

The TSOP48/ATtiny13 info is accessible in the radioman's git repository https://github.com/radiomanV/TL866/tree/master/TSOP_Encryption
Regarding the supported chip list, if you look at the updates you'll see that the device gets only ~2 small updates per year or so. There're some additions and fixes, but nothing major. So I don't think we can expect much from them.

If there's nothing in the ZIF socket and you get this... Yes, it's broken.
Send the screenshot to the seller and ask him what to do.

I just received mine and it works like a charm! I only advised the seller to change its headline and properly state the correct number of adapters: they say 9 adapters but in fact it comes with 8 adapters plus a PLCC extractor. I saw other sellers doing this as well, therefore watch carefully the photos and description.

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

Anyone tested the TL866cs with dallas nvram?

i got 2 new ds1250y-100+ and it seem there only a test function for this IC and the software give me a read error 31 when i try to test the nvram. (Data,Address,Unit enabled)

I have 2 ic, same problem, i have put them in a socket to be sure there no contact problem with the reader and still the same error.... i tried to read an old amd flash memory and i have no problem so i doubt it's some problem with the reader..

I want to backup my TDS754D nvram before some hacking, i see everywhere these chip are supported but for now even with the minipro updated to the last build i still have this read error 31 and only the test function...

 I have only a ZIF socket TSOP48,but I have not any adapters.
Please if anyone have circuit diagram on this adapters or pictures on the boards without chips and plastic holders please help me.

Well, looking at the photo of the adapters (the two boards closest to the top-right of the photo in this listing), it looks like there's more to it than just knowing the pinouts.

Hi I use this adapter please see the attachments pics my programmer is tl866a.
Thanks

The Solution is on the second Picture, the Bottom of the SOP-Adapter.
Look at the lower left corner, there is one wire which ends without any connection. This is A15, so one Adressline is floating.


Hello everyone. I'm new here but I have followed with great interest the forum. I bought the adapter for 29F200 and TL866CS. It happens every time I try to read the 29F200 always gives different checksums. The adapter is the same as the image, with the track not connected. Does anyone know what the pin where it is soldered? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I just purchased the TL866A. I would like to program the ST M27C1000-15F1 but cannot find it on the list of supported devices. Is there an alternative IC that I can choose from the list that will allow me to program the M27C1000 or would this be a case of requesting to have it added?

Thanks

OK, answered my own question. Swap pins 2 and 24 and treat it as the M27C1001

Hi,

I am new to this blog.  I have purchased Minipro TL866CS universal programmer recently.  It includes installation CD .  But the user guide and help menu are in Chines only.  My contact with supplier has not yielded any result.  The autoelectric web page is also in Chines and I could not make out any thing from there.

Can any body suggest me from where I can get the English version of user guide and help menu.

Please help me.

If you start the program and press <Alt>-L (for language) you can choose between Chinese and English.
English is at the bottom in my version.



Oops, not sure what I thought I was reading but that was not what you asked, sorry...  :palm:
