Unlike an EPROM, which requires a separate UV eraser and programmer that can take more than 30 minutes to erase and reprogram, an MTP device can be electrically erased and reprogrammed at least 1,000 times in a few seconds using the same programmer.
In contrast to reprogramming an EPROM, which requires a separate UV eraser and programmer that can take more than 30 minutes to erase and reprogram, an MTP device can be electrically erased and reprogrammed at least 1,000 times in a few seconds using an external programmer.
