I recently came across a number of these 24LC00 T/SN Microchip
EEPROM's. Could anyone tell me if these have much use anymore, or
are they only used in specific applications? I unfortunately don't
have the time I would like to have to work with them. I appreciated
any information that others might have about the uses for them or if
they are trash can material.
24LC00 Microchip EEPROM
I believe they are an I2C device. I like to use external EEPROMs to hold ASCII chars used in messages to an LCD. If you have a number of menus. ASCII requires a lot of memory and storing it in an external EEPROM saves space in the PIC.
You can also store tables, setup values and such that can be pre programmed. I'm sure others will find a lot of other uses as well.
Hope this helps.
