To illustrate this lets follow the steps below. Next we start off just like we 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 function takes three 24c265, 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 the byte we want to eperom. For more details Please refer to the Datasheet below. The arguments it accepts are the same first two arguments the write function, the device eepro and the address on the eeprom to read from. Click to learn more. We need to send the MSB Most significant bits first so we have to shift our address to the right eight bits.

The following code allows you to write all the bytes of memory. Lets say we want to write to address location 20, which is ewprom binary. 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.

This is a little confusing at first so lets look at the figure below to explain the address in a little more detail. If you eeprpm using Arduino 1. This tutorial was originally posted on the 10kohms.

After our data and power pins are connected we have four left on 24LC chip, the WP pin and the three address pins. The next argument is the address on the eeprom you want to write to and as stated above can be between 0 and 32, Below esprom the entire tutorial code, scan over it and see if you understand it before I dive into what each section does. Your email address will not be published.

This allows the chip time to complete the write operation, without this if you try to do sequential writes weird things might happen. 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.

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 byte at a time so we have to split it up. Then connect the SCL pin 6 to pin 5 on the Arduino.

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 2c256 the value. This means our 24LC chip gets the address and then which tells it to store the next byte in address location 20, The Wire library allows you to pass an integer value so we could just make a bit-wise operation to device the integer variable into two bytes.

This is written for Arduino versions before 1. 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 24cc256 more multiple series of storage.

For more information please read http: The first send function takes 24c2556 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 next function requestFrom sends the command to that chip to start sending the data at the address we set above.

Adding External I2C EEPROM to Arduino (24LC256)

Some of microcontroller have limited storage like Arduino it has only bytes data space compare to AT24C has Kb EEPROM will be very suitable for small amount of data storage or extending data storage for your microcontroller. The next three bits A2,A1,A0 are the important bits that we can change so lets look at the simple table below to see what address the chip will have depending on what we set these eeprlm to.

The first eeorom is the address of the device you want to write to, in our case we only have one device disk1 so we pass this on. See the address of the device below.

We first call the Wire. Next lets go ahead and connect the data pins to the Arduino board.
