Flash Destroyer passes 6 million writes

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 […]

Flash Destroyer passes 2 million writes

Some time in the last few hours the Flash Destroyer passed 2 million write-verify cycles. jnd points to Microchip application notes 01019A [PDF!] and 00537 [PDF!] that explain the EEPROM endurance characterization process. The higher the temperature, the worse the endurance will be. Generally, and approximately, a device which fails at 10 million cycles at […]
