I need some help programming a few M5203Q eproms. Im not electronically inclined. Will this copy / program this eprom?

Hi Paul, I appreciate the kind words. It's neat that you built the PE programmer and Z80 computer. I had a somewhat similar experience around 1976, building an 8080-based computer. I was lucky though, that the company where I worked had an Intel development system (in another building). Used that to burn the 1702A-based debugger for my 8080. Used every byte!

Thanks Stephen, that was fun. I constructed the Popular Electronics version in 1978/9 for a Z80 homebrew - it worked and I still have it. As you say, hand toggling each byte was arduous, but one1702A held enough code for a monitor, and another held the VDU routines. Those were the days...

I was lucky enough in my research on early eProms to talk to Dov and get the information Martin needed to make the changes to his programmer. Apart from the non As, I also sent a NS 5203 eprom but still need to find him a 5202 to test.
Personally I have been sourcing enough vintage components over the past year for 10 replica 1701/1702 manual programming boards based on Intel 1971/72 documentation

Thanks, Stu! That's right; Martin's programmer does do the non-A version. Those are apparently rare and I haven't found information on the differences. I did see a posting that someone supplied the non-A version to Martin for testing. FWIW, they said that a few bits were stuck high but after many programming passes, those bits were cleared.

Excellent solution for your needs.. great job.
I noticed Martin didn't mention that his latest version can also deal with the non A version Intel eProms 1701/1702
