No, there are basically no modern equivalents for those parts.
Cypress makes some CMOS PROM and EPROM parts for bipolar replacement,
but not in those small sizes, and the ones that they do make are
extremely expensive. And it looks like they're phasing out the windowed
(erasable) parts.

If you need to replace those parts, you'll have to buy surplus or
NOS (new old stock) parts.
