 As I started reading this thread, I went up to the Data I/O file
download area
and realized in horror that those family and part codes text files were
(The "old" directory under is
Someone should host these files!
 I started searching my hard drive and some backup CDs for files with
"22" in
them. And I did find the family and part codes text file for the "Series
but I could swear that I also downloaded a zipped file of all of the old
support files from the Data I/O site. I just can't what it might have
been named.
Can anyone convince me that I'm not just imagining this?

 I have a couple Series 22 programmers (and a optional RS-232 paper tape
built-in UV eraser,and 351A-064 socket adapter for those little PROMs
like the
82S123 :).
And I also have a manual, contact me at
Or if you're already famillar with operating the Series 22, I could just
the little "flip book" operator's manual. I have flip books for the 22B
(What is the 22B?),
Series 22, and the 29B. I don't have a regular manual for my 29B.
 One of these days I need to create a cheat sheet for operating the
Series 22 because
every time I need to use it, I spend half an hour in the manual
(especially to set-up
remote operation with a PC).
