F2R16 - GQ-4x programmer


I have 4 of you F2R16's that I purchased a while ago. Now that AmigaOS 3.1.4 is out I want to burn the ROM to my cool new toys. I have a GQ-4X programmer and it negatively supports the 27c400 chips and the 29F400T or B. Do you know if it would be possible to just put in the F2R16 in the GQ-4x and tell it it is a 27C400? I guessing it would blow up the 29F400, but not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately is not possible to program the F2R16 like a 27C400.
However, if the programmer support the 29F400 (or similar) it is possible to make a simple adapter.

The GQ-4x can program the 29F400 if you have the ADP-072 adapter. I have both the ADP-054 adapter to allow program 27C400 and the ADP-072, TSOP48 adapter to allow it to program 29F400 chips. I would think your F2R16-PROG board work work expect for that the form factor is too narrow for the ADP-072 adapter. Here is the website page for the adapter.


Not an advertisement, I just want to be able to use the product I already have vs, buying a new setup.

Yes, this will work electrically. However you will still need to wire up an adapter to connect the pins to the F2R16.
Something similar to the F2R16-PROG
