Acknowledge Polling: Any time a EEPROM page is
written, the device requires the EEPROM write time
) after the STOP condition to write the contents of
the page to EEPROM. During the EEPROM write time,
the device does not acknowledge its slave address
because it is busy. It is possible to take advantage
of that phenomenon by repeatedly addressing the
device, which allows the next page to be written as
soon as the device is ready to receive the data. The
alternative to acknowledge polling is to wait for maxi-
mum period of t
to elapse before attempting to write
again to the device.
EEPROM Write Cycles: When EEPROM writes occur,
the device writes the whole EEPROM memory page,
even if only a single byte on the page was modified.
Writes that do not modify all 8 bytes on the page are
allowed and do not corrupt the remaining bytes of
memory on the same page. Because the whole page
is written, bytes on the page that were not modified
during the transaction are still subject to a write cycle.
This can result in a whole page being worn out over
time by writing a single byte repeatedly. Writing a page
1 byte at a time wears the EEPROM out 8x faster than
writing the entire page at once. The device’s EEPROM
write cycles are specified in the
table. The specification shown is at the
worst-case temperature. It can handle approximately
10x that many writes at room temperature. Writing to
SRAM-shadowed EEPROM memory with SEEB = 1
does not count as a EEPROM write cycle when evaluat-
ing the EEPROM’s estimated lifetime.
Reading a Single Byte from a Slave: Unlike the write
operation that uses the memory address byte to define
where the data is to be written, the read operation
occurs at the present value of the memory address
counter. To read a single byte from the slave, the
master generates a START condition, writes the slave
address byte with R/W = 1, reads the data byte with a
NACK to indicate the end of the transfer, and gener-
ates a STOP condition.
Manipulating the Address Counter for Reads: A
dummy write cycle can be used to force the address
pointer to a particular value. To do this, the master
generates a START condition, writes the slave address
byte (R/W = 0), writes the memory address where it

desires to read, generates a repeated START condi-
tion, writes the slave address byte (R/W = 1), reads
data with ACK or NACK as applicable, and generates
a STOP condition.
The following sections provide the device’s register
definitions (see
register or row of registers has an access descriptor that
determines the password level required to read or write
the memory. Level 2 password is intended for the mod-
ule manufacture access only; level 1 password allows
another level of protection for items the end consumer
may wish to protect. Many registers are always readable,
but require password access to write. There are a few
registers that cannot be read without password access.

At least 1 byte/bit in the row/byte is different
than the rest of the row/byte, so look at each
byte/bit separately for permissions.
