Hi,
is it possible to use the evaluation board to program an eeprom already soldered on a product PCB?
Using a program port like the one shown in the guitar amp demo layout?
Thanks!

In theory, yes. But making modifications to the dev board can damage it and/or the target board. We do not support such modifications and cannot provide support for them.

The best way without modding the dev board would be to use another 8 Pin IC socket with wires soldered to the corresponding pins and piggyback this socket into the dev board eeprom socket. The wires can have a plug on the end which you just connect to your own production pcb.

ice-nine,
I was thinking about the same solution..
but was a bit scared of frying the precious dev board.
Have you actually tried it?

..as simple as connecting with wires the production pcb eeprom to the dev board socket,
power up just the dev board and assemble?
It would be fantastic!!!

thanks

Sorry Sandromatic for the delay in a reply, It should work but I have never tried it as I have never owned a Dev board, I built my own form of dev kit.
