EEPROM devices are standard products, used for the non-volatile storage of parameters and fine-granularity data.

There is no single memory technology (SRAM, DRAM, EEPROM, flash memory, EPROM, ROM) that meets an application's needs perfectly. Consequently, the designer needs to know the particular strengths and weaknesses of each technology before selecting the best compromise for use in any given application. The designer can then design the application to keep within the specification, for the best performance, best reliability and lowest failure rates.

Lately, this involves understanding at least the general principles of how the devices, in the given technology, are constructed and how they work.

This application note has been designed to give precisely this level of background understanding for one of those technologies: EEPROM from STMicroelectronics. It describes how STMicroelectronics' EEPROM is constructed, how it works, and gives useful guidelines for achieving high reliability applications under some of the most stringent conditions, such as those that are experienced in the automotive market.
