35 years ago I left a 2716 or 2532 or something of that ilk outside
"in the sun" for a week. Granted, this was in gloomy Upstate NY.
But it was not erased.
Question on erasing though. Is exposure cumulative?
If you put a chip in the eraser for 1/2 the require time, and stop.
When you start again, will it require the full time, or only half?

FWIW Leon, the newer high capacity EPROMS have tiny cells and so are much
more susceptible to UV exposure. The old 2716's etc. were hard to erase even
with a proper UV lamp! Remember with erasing, you move electrons into an
isolated charged island on a silicon insulator. It's not an all or nothing
effect, as the charge builds up the cells with 0's will be unreliable at
high speed reads.
