Hello,
If I want to write something to EEPROM, Should I disable interrupts or arduino does it automatically for me  ?

Thank you for your answer.

If you are planning to use the Arduino EEPROM library, no manipulation of interrupts is needed. This library uses a simple polled approach, as opposed to interrupt-controlled EEPROM access. Just out of curiosity, why did you think interrupts needed to be disabled?

I thought writing the EEPROM must be continuous without interruption.
Thank you for your answer.

I'm thinking the hardware probably handles it asynchronously.
