the eeprom can handle 100,000 write/delete runs.
but our goal is $1,000,000.00
1.) how to you save data to the eeprom (like say a dollar amt) every time a quarter is inserted?
and base our savings amount at $1,000,000.00
F-RAM experiences 1E12 read/write cycles or greater.
I don't know anyone who has saved a million dollars 25 cents at a time. Realistic goals might be better.
Of course, the 100,000 cycles applies to each cell. So, write 100,000 to each (collection of cells), then move to the next set. How many are in each set depends on the size of the value you are storing. You'd have one (set) to record where you were currently writing, updated only when that value changed.
@lefty..all this new to me, so i don't know anything about f-ram
there are 6 of us in my house and we have TONS of coins here.. we have been saving all of our change for a couple of years
