Re: Smonson's slow H4 build

Thanks for that @kodak80, that's much more like what I expected for an old-style EEPROM.

Re: Smonson's slow H4 build

Quick question, what is the ROM part? Does the H4 use a "44-pin JLCC JEDEC" compatible pinout?

Re: Board cleaning

Back at my old workplace we used to wash 'em in a sink full of hot soapy water and a dish brush, then dry them off with a blast of compressed nitrogen. I hear some people put their boards in the dishwasher, although I wouldn't recommend it!
