TL866A - need to program 25Q21BT but device not on list
 
Hi guys
This is the first time my TL866CS let me down (other than 1.8V eproms for which I ordered CH341 but it did not arrive yet)

I want to program a 25Q21BT Eprom but it is not found on the list in minipro

I can see GD25VQ21B but when I try to read my chip, the ID does not match
0x C8 40 12

My App is version 6.85 and programmer 03.2.86

Is there a software update to program this eprom. The datasheet says it is 3.3V (if this is the right one)

https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datash...M/GD25Q21.html

The Eprom is of a Gigabyte GTX 980 ti 6Gb DDr5

Hmmm no replies, but I did a google for 'CH341A supported eprom list' as I also have one of these programmers arriving soon, and the 25Q21 doesn't seem to be supported by that programmer either

I think the full part number is GD25Q21B - it does have a funny G logo marked on it.

Is there something odd about this eprom? CH341A is supposed to support 25 series eproms

Try to replace it with W25X20CLSNIG, they write on the forums that it is an analogue of it.
Or try to set on the programmer: W25X20CL.

OK I'll give that a go tomorrow

Thanks

That 'G' logo stands for 'GigaDevice'
The ID code: 0xC84012 is match for 'GD25Q21B'
Datasheet may be found here: https://www.tme.com/Document/0aabca2...7/gd25q21b.pdf
btw, 'ELM Technology' [http://www.elm-tech.com] also produces it.

Compare to dumps available on the internet.

@megaraider
I do have that ID code 0xC84012, as I stated in the OP

The problem is that my programmer does not seem to list support for this IC, but the fact there are bios dumps on the internet suggests that some programmer or other must in fact support it

I will try using W25X20CL as lotas suggest -it certainly seems to read the eprom if I tell it to ignore the ID check

maybe the replacement sofware has more devices?

When compared the only difference seems to be that GD25Q21B is able to do Quad SPI, which isn't relevant when programming. Other details as programmable page size (256-bytes), Sector/Block size, and of course 2M-bit size do match. So imo go ahead...!

Checked, might have for other ICs, but doesn't support GD25Q21B either (not even any 'GigaDevice' ICs).

Side Note:
Thanks to the moderator for deleting my previous empty reply. I must be blind because i couldn't find the option to delete (only edit, within a time frame) or it doesn't exists ;)

I have this exact same issue. I also tried the WL analog but didn't have luck. Did you figure it out?
