Flash Destroyer passes 6 million writes

Posted on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010 in Flash Destroyer by Ian

James managed to catch a screenshot of the Flash Destroyer as it hit 6,000,000, thanks James!

The EEPROM is specified for 1 million writes at the voltage and temperature extremes listed in the datasheet. Running at room temperature, this chip might surpass 10 million write cycles. Or not. Stay tuned and find out. Submit your final count guess to win free PCBs.

You can preorder the Flash Destroyer ‘I like to solder’ kit for $30, including worldwide shipping.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
