Willem PCB5b detail

NOTE THAT THE WILLEM PROGRAMMER PCB5B REQUIRES A PARALLEL PORT FOR DATA AND A USB PORT OR A PLUG PACK FOR POWER. The plug pack (not supplied) will be required for programming voltages over 12.75V, older eproms will require this.
Note that the Plugpack is not supplied, click here to add one.

Beware of Cheap Copies
I get A LOT OF REQUESTS for Technical Support from people who have purchased a Willem Programmer from elsewhere at a really low price but do not quite come up to standard and do not seem support the chips they should.
While I do not provide support for Items that have not been purchased from me, I have had a few special requests and because they have purchased an Adapter and other Items I agreed to check their programmer out as a favour.
Well, many of the Programmers I received have been of poor quality, here is the list:
- Really suspect solder joints including dry joints and little or no solder on some...
- No sheet of perspex or stand-offs underneath, just a plain PCB.
- PCB very thin and prone to cracking.
- No solder mask or screen printing applied.
- IC’s all soldered onto the board and not placed in sockets.
- Low cost components used.
- Components not properly attached.

Darkwire provides Technical Support with every programmer sold. This is not just advice but REAL SUPPORT
We have a large collection of devices (chips) and know how to use EVERY ADAPTER with this programmer.
We also know various techniques for programming different devices and can help make your programming experience a good one.
Why do I need one?
- Refreshing, Upgrading, Programming BIOS chips.
- Copier, Fax machine, Printer main board maintaining or repairing.
- Motor Vehicle memory device, MEMCAL or ECU code reading, writing.
- VCD, DVD, Color TV maintaining or repairing.
- Neon Light Controller code writing.
- MCU development - programming for MCS-51 series, AVR series and PIC series MCU.
- Repairing, reading, writing, programming PC motherboard BIOS Chips.
- Upgrade the chip in your cars computer.
- Modify the chips in your Xbox or PlayStation Console.
- Programming MicroChip PIC Micros.
- Programming ATMEL AVR Micros.
- Flash a 3V6 SPI device on your motherboard or HDD.
