The Memory-Maker EPROM Programmer comes in kit form and permits programming of 2716 and 2532 EPROMs. The machine language software is available for either cassette- or disk-based systems and includes EPROM blank checking, programming, and verifying. Also included are the capabilities to read most 2K and 4K ROMs, edit any loaded software, list this software to the screen or printer, examine any portion of computer memory, and save any portion of computer memory to disk or tape.
