I found an old EEPROM chip in my spare parts collection, the 93LC46B. The data sheet says it communicates using 3-wire serial I/O, and can store 1024 bits organized either as 8- or 16-bit words.
Next was the question of how to wire the bus pirate to the chip. I liked the idea of plugging some headers into a breadboard
These give the Bus Pirate’s clips something to grab onto.
Then, I wasn’t sure if I needed to create a separate power supply. Turns out one can simply power the chip directly from the Bus Pirate’s 3.3V connector. This is undoubtedly one of the reasons the Bus Pirate is such a well-regarded tool.

Get your own handy Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors.
