While making my way through the book "Learning To Fly The PIC24" - one of the projects was to construct a library that encapsulated the low level interface with an external EEPROM. The original program listed in the book was limited to read/writes of integer type variables - I wanted to expand on that capability to allow use of any variable type.
If you are familiar with the book, you will know that all of the projects are compatible with the Explorer 16 Development Board. One of the many devices featured on the board is a 25LC256 Serial EEPROM. This article does not delve into the ins-and-outs of SPI or Serial EEPROMs, rather is a library that can be used/examined by others with similar hardware. Here are some brief features of the 25LC256 Serial EEPROM:Discuss this article in the forums (0 replies).
