# HP 35665A all options

Enable all options on an HP 35665A

Unfortunately when I got my 35665A almost no options were installed. I especially wanted the HP Instrument BASIC option to automate my measurements.

According to the internet I need to write the following data to a 24C01 EEPROM. Then replace the one in the motherboard.

### Programming a new EEPROM

So I bought a few chips and built a programmer. Then I started testing Arduino libraries until one worked. This is the quick and dirty code (you need to install this library):

If everything went well you should see this on the serial terminal:

Writing to EEPROM memory...Done.

### Changing the EEPROM

Now to change the EEPROM you need to open the case, lift the power supply and take the memory board out. Dave Jones made a repair video of a similar analyzer (35660A). Watch it before you start.

And since you have the RAM card out maybe it's a good idea to change the battery too.
