EPROM, Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory, Florida Intoxilyzer 8000, Source Code

Video | Intoxilyzer 8000 Under Attack – Again

A few years back we attacked the Intoxilyzer 8000 in a Florida courtroom. We sought the source code that makes the machine operate. We obtained an Intoxilyzer EPROM Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory Chips that contained the software for the Florida Intoxilyzer and found there were some file size differences between different machines. We hope the new round of Florida Source Code litigation will get to the bottom of the matter.
