Microchip Upgrades Low-Cost Development Tool for Serial EEPROM Devices

7/22/2003 - Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, announced the SEEVAL® 32 Serial EEPROM Designer’s Kit. This is a low-cost development system that enables designers to quickly and easily develop a robust and reliable serial EEPROM-based application while significantly reducing the time required for system integration and hardware/software debug.

Available at a special introductory price of $119 USD, designers receive a powerful programmer/debugger tool that supports all of Microchip’s Microwire®, SPITM and I2CTM compatible serial EEPROM devices. It enables users to read, write or erase any byte, block, or an entire array of code. The SEEVAL 32 Designer’s Kit runs on any standard PC and supports Windows® 95/98/2000/Me/XT/NT operating systems.

The tool provides advanced features to aid in system integration and debug, such as:

The Total Endurance modeling software enables designers to quickly choose the best serial EEPROM for the specific application and perform trade-off analysis with voltage, temperature, write cycles and other system parameters in order to achieve the desired erase/write endurance or product lifetime. This allows the designer to understand and predict the erase/write endurance of a serial EEPROM device. An on-line tutorial with hypertext help files is also included.

The self-contained SEEVAL 32 Serial EEPROM Designer’s Kit (DV243002) contains the SEEVAL 32 evaluation and programming board, a CD-ROM with Microchip’s SEEVAL 32 software and Total Endurance modeling software, a serial EEPROM sample pack containing eight devices, a user’s guide, RS-232 serial cable, and power supply.
