Thread: eeprom endurance
face BY : Mike Mansheim email (remove spam text)

I'd like to start using the internal data eeprom on the
F876 in place of the external 24LC01 we've been using.
However, Microchip's data sheet says the endurance of
the data eeprom is 100,000 writes, vs. 1,000,000 for
the 24xxx (I even saw a reference in the archives that
said endurance of the 24xxx type parts is actually
10 million).
Is Microchip being real conservative here, or is the
data eeprom on these chips just not as robust?
Thanks for any help.
