- n. (computer science) a read-only memory chip that can be erased by ultraviolet light and programmed again with new data
One of the key activities of EPROM is to this facilitate the development and deployment of these new mobile phone applications through the creation of a mobile phone programming curriculum for African computer science students.
The chips are known as EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory).
Unlike an EPROM (Electrically Programmable Read-Only Memory) an EEPROM can be programmed and erased multiple times electrically.
In 2006, Nathan launched MIT's EPROM initiative, developing a mobile phone programming curriculum that has been adopted by 12 computer science departments across Sub-Saharan Africa.
So we swapped some EPROM programming and erasing gear for some books and a patch panel at the swapshop.
Nathan Eagle is working on the EPROM (Entrepreneurial Programming and Research On Mobiles) project - launched jointly at MIT and the University of Nairobi:
This is a traditional hand-cranked street organ - except that its tunes are stored on EPROM rather than punched-paper.
They must have installed the new EPROM burner, the quill pen and India ink.
For persistent storage you're probably thinking of Flash, the various EPROM flavours or maybe the new fancy PMRAM which uses a magnetic substrate to store bits.
The first is to create an EPROM chip containing a program that will install the attack code into the machine's flash memory, and then to open the machine, install the chip on its motherboard, and reboot from the EPROM.
