The Microchip Technology Inc. 25AA02E48 is a 2 Kbit Serial Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM). The memory is accessed via a simple Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) compatible serial bus. The bus signals required are a clock input (SCK) plus separate data in (SI) and data out (SO) lines. Access to the device is controlled through a Chip Select (CS) input. Communication to the device can be paused via the hold pin (HOLD). While the device is paused, transitions on its inputs will be ignored, with the exception of Chip Select, allowing the host to service higher priority interrupts. The 25AA02E48 is available in the standard 8-lead SOIC and 6-lead SOT-23 packages.
The MPLAB® PM3 Universal Device Programmer is easy to use and operates with a PC or as a stand-alone unit, and programs Microchip's entire line of PIC® devices as well as the latest dsPIC® DSC devices. When used standalone, data can be loaded and saved with the SD/MMC card (not included).
The Serial EEPROM PIM PICtail™ Modules are a series of boards designed around Microchip Serial EEPROM devices. The boards are designed to interface with the PICtail Plus connector as well as the MPLAB® Starter Kit for Serial Memory Products and the PICkit™ 2, allowing you to get started right out of the box.
