[Help UK] Help burn a Zilog Z86 MCU
« on: February 15, 2020, 04:36:44 pm »
Is there someone here with a programmer able to burn Zilog Z86 MCU's?
If so, could you please help me burn on such IC (I can ship it to you and also provide the firmware file)?
I have a Fluke 8840A/AF with a sick U202 and am trying to revive it.

Thanks!

Maybe. I have a Dataman 48 which seems to power up OK (haven't used it in years) and there are many Z86E devices on the list. However, the last PC I had the Dataman software installed on doesn't know about them (clearly needs and update). More importantly, I don't appear to have anything with a parallel port, which is what the programmer talks to.

So that's a provisional 'possibly' which would involve a fair bit of mucking about trying to get the programmer working. I'd prefer someone else to have a more accessible solution, but if all else fails... :)

I have a Leaper 48 that claims it can program:
Z86E0208PSC(DIP)
Z86E0208SSC(SOP)
Z86E0308PSC(DIP)
Z86E0408PSC(DIP)
Z86E0408SSC(SOP)
Z86E0412PSC(DIP)
Z86E0412SSC(SOP)
Z86E0612PSC(DIP)
Z86E0612SSC(SOP)
Z86E0812PSC(DIP)
Z86E0812SSC(SOP)
Z86E3016PSC(DIP)
However I do not have the SOP adapter.

Thank you both for offerring!

And sorry, I should have been more specific: the Z86 MCU I am referring to is an Z86E21 and it is a 40 pin DIP.
So, @DLJ, I don't think the Leaper would work here.

@dunkemhigh, the Dataman 48 does list the Z86E21 as supported, so there's hope there.
With regards to a computer with parallel port, I do have one (running WinXP).
But, indeed, let's first see if someone else has something "at hand".
Otherwise and depending on your location, maybe we can meet some place where you bring the programmer and I bring the rest.
If that doesn't work either and if you are ok with it, you could send me the programmer and I send it back to you once I'm done with it (I will support all costs involved, of course).

Thanks again!

Looks a bit like you can program it as a 27C64A w. a bit of "glue"
