    I'm looking for a universal programmer (preferably under $200) that works with the most relevant/common devices and yet (hopefully) has some future support (adding new devices, updating software/firmware, etc; ).

    I'd like it to be able to program at LEAST all/most DIP PLDs, Arduino MPUs, and Xicor x28c256 EEPROM

    I'd also like it to be able to test all/most 4000 and 7400 series ICs and DIP SRAM (particularly as6c1008)

    Any recommendations/advice?
