Adding External I2C EEPROM to Arduino (24LC256)

Using the image seprom as a guide lets begin to wire the chip. This function takes three arguments, the device address the disk1 variablethe memory address on the eeprom and the byte of data you want to write. Finally we have to pass along 24c25 byte we want to store. We first call the Wire. For more information please read http: Next we have to send the address on the eeprom we want to write to.

After our data and power pins are connected we have four left on 24LC chip, the WP pin and the three address pins. Leave this field empty. This is written for Arduino versions before 1.

Next lets go ahead and connect the data pins to the Arduino board. The next function requestFrom sends the command to that chip to start sending the data at the address we set above. See the address of the device below. Lets say we want to write to address location 20, which is in binary.

Below is the entire tutorial code, scan over it and see if you understand it before I dive into what each section does.

Some of microcontroller have limited storage like Arduino it has only bytes data space eeproj to AT24C has Kb EEPROM will be very suitable for small amount of data storage or extending data storage for eepro microcontroller.


The following code allows you to write all the bytes of memory. This website uses cookies for analytics, personalization, and other purposes. To illustrate this lets follow the steps below. With the address pins connected the hardware part of this tutorial is complete and every pin of the 24LC should be connected to either Vcc, GND or the Arduino. The WP pin stands for write-protected and this allows you to control if data can be written to the eeprom or not.

Next we do a bitwise AND to get just the last eight bits. Eepom connect the SCL pin 6 to pin 5 on the Arduino. The next argument is the address on the eeprom you want to write to and as stated eepprom can be between 0 and 32, Arduino Sketch Below is the entire tutorial code, scan over it and see if you understand it before I dive into what each section does. As you can see the diagram above the pin A0, A1, A2 are connected to the ground these pins allow you to customize the device i2C bus address, below the data sheet we that we verify how it is formed the byte address.

Next we start off just like 2c4256 did with the write function by starting the process with beginTransmission and then we send the address we want to access; this works exactly the same way as the write function. This allows the chip time to complete the write operation, without this if you try to do sequential writes weird things might eeporm.

The Wire library allows you to pass an integer value so 24c25 could just make a bit-wise operation to device the integer variable into two bytes. Since our eeprom chip has 32, address locations we are using two bytes 16 bits to store the address but we can only send one eeptom at a time so we have to split it up. The arguments it accepts are the same first two arguments the write function, the device address and the address on the eeprom to read from.

Click to learn more. This tutorial was originally posted on the eepro. This means our 24LC chip gets the address and then which tells it to store the next byte in address location 20, For more details Please refer to the Datasheet below. Check out our videos Follow us on: The first send function takes the eeaddress and shifts the bits to the right by eight which moves the higher end of the 16 bit address down to the lower eight bits.

The 24C is optimized for use in minimal storage applications where low-power and low-voltage operation, driven using i2C serial communication bus to help you do much more multiple series of storage. Time to move on to software!

This variable is not required but it allows us to easily change the address we want to access without going through all of the code and replacing the value. If you are using Arduino 1. For the purpose of explaining how the address works we can ignore the Start and Acknowledge bits.

By continuing to browse, you agree to our use of cookies as described in our Cookies Statement. The 24LC gets the data and writes the data to that address location. The serial reading is more fluid and influenced by the speed of the serial communication which is running to bytes per second.
