Does anybody know that eprom burner and has any kind of manual and/or software for it?

Basically it looks like a big table calculator with a little hex keyboard and some action keys under a LCD display on the left top side and a module connector on the right (my device is equipped with a module called "FX-6", sporting three Textool sockets of differents sizes).

On the back there are a power connector, 1x Centronics, 1x RS232. Aval was an irish company (from the name plate) and the whole device seems to originate from 1987.

I hope that some hardware hacker does know more about that and how to make use of it eventually :-)

Cheers

Hi guys

I have an Aval PKW-1000 too with a FX-1 socket adapter installed. My device has firmware v1.22 installed (the firmware ROM is visible/accessible if the adapter board is removed). I'm VERY much interested in a copy of any newer firmware anyone might have :p

PKW-1000 VER1.22 has support for the following EPROMs:

2716 STANDARD
2732 STANDARD
2732A STANDARD
2764 STANDARD
2764 INTEL
2764 FUJI
2764A INTEL
27128 STANDARD
27128 INTEL
27128 FUJI
27128A INTEL
27256 INTEL
27C256 FUJI


This is what I've found out about how to operate it by trying out different key combinations: :)


#[JOB][SET] CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE AND ADDRESS WITH [-]/[SET] AND [0-F]

**** USABLE WITH [LOD], [PRG] AND [CMP] BEFORE PRESSING [SET]:
[0]=EVEN BYTES [1]=ODD BYTES [A]=ODD BYTES ??? (possibly ALL) ****

#[LOD] READ EPROM TO RAM WITH [SET]
#[PRG] PROGRAM EPROM FROM RAM WITH [SET]

#[JOB][-][SET] @ - ADMIN PROMPT

@[JOB][A][SET][2] TRANSMIT TEST WITH [0-F] AND [SET]

@[JOB][B][SET] ADAPTER TEST ???

[RST] RESET - RETURN TO MAIN MENU ???

You can use any terminal program with support for file transfer to transfer ROM images between a PC and the programmer.

I hope this helps you getting started... But if anyone should stumble upon a *real* manual I'd be interested too :D

How to read EPROM and transfer the image to PC

1) Setup serial port to e.g. 19200,8,N,1
- press [JOB][7][SET] and use [-]/[SET] to change serial data bits, stop bits, parity (8,NO,1) and press [RST] to select and exit
- press [JOB][8][SET] and use [-]/[SET] to change serial transfer speed (19200) and press [RST] to select and exit

2) Setup image file format to e.g. Intel HEX
- press [JOB][9][SET] and use [-]/[SET] to change transfer format (Intel HEX) and press [RST] to select and exit

3) Setup EPROM device type to e.g. standard 2764
- press [JOB][SET] and use [-]/[SET] to change device type (2764 Standard) and press [RST] to select and exit

4) Read EPROM into RAM buffer
- insert the EPROM to be read
- press [LOD][SET] and wait while the EPROM is being read
- the EPROMs checksum is displayed after the beep

5) Transmit the image
- Prepare the PC terminal client for file reception or text capture
- press [JOB][C][SET] and wait while the image is being sent

Hello I've got version 3.1I installed.
This one also support a 27512 eprom
If you're interested. I could upload this version to you.
