I2C Serial EEPROM Usage Recommendations

Recording Date: 09/12/2007
Duration: 19 min


The I2C bus is the most popular choice for serial EEPROMs, and Microchip engineers have been working with the protocol for years. For this seminar, they have created seven usage recommendations based on questions most often asked by customers. This web seminar begins with a discussion of the reasons for the protocol?s popularity, including minimal use of microcontroller pins and low cost. Then several hardware recommendations are offered as ways to better protect data, increase throughput, and extend battery life. Finally, firmware suggestions explain the use of the acknowledge bit as well as other ways to increase data throughput.
