Topic: eeprom rewrite test (Read 992 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello,

I write an application that will write to eeprom.
The value written may often be already their.

My question : Is it a good idea to check value before writing, or may I assume that :
- the avr is clever enough not write the same value again ?
- writing, while not changing a byte does not alter the eeprom ?

Does anyone know that ?

It's best to check the value before writing to save a write cycle if possible.  The AVR does not check.  And there is a limit to the number of write cycles, on the order of 500,000.
