From Cheapest to Eternal:
- Willem. Nothing can be cheaper than that. You can build one on your
home for a few quids, a single sided board drawing is avaiable which you can
make using photo method or thermal toner transfer. Very reliable but doesn't
program anything older than 2732 or 2716 if I'm not mistaken, Although there
is an adapter avaiable.
- Top 2004/2007/2008/whatever. These programmers made in china are very
cheap and very capable, but the software is terrible and the support is nil.
I'd not buy one of these but they **works**
- Used ALL-03 / ALL-11 programmer - top of mind, great programmers for
all kind of jobs, does SRAM/DRAM/TTL/CMOS/Whatever testing and are usually
cheap - if you can find one to buy.
- Used Labprog 48 from Elnec. www.elnec.com says it all.
- NEW Beeprog / Beeprog + from Elnec. The best $300-700 you're going to
spend in a programmer. I have a beeprog and will not have to buy anything
for a long time. Excellent support, DAILY (!) updates and a great tool.
Hope it helps!
