24LC16B I2c memory interface

Perhaps you consider using 24LC64 chips instead. I am looking to have possible 4 sx’s set up as slaves, and 1 eeprom and one rtc all set up on the same i2c bus if thats possible.

Gunther, Page 11 of said datasheet states that A0, A1, and A2 are not connected in this device.

In these datasheets they also state that the address pins are not connected. I did not use the 24LC16 so far but “smaller” devices, like the 24LC Seems as if there actually can only be one 24LC16 on a bus without additional decoding.

Maybe, this explains the difference. They definitely allow for eight devices on a bus, and they have two address bytes following the control byte in order to address the full range of the memory. Hey, you can find the datasheet for the 24LC16 here: So that means, not only is it limited to only one of those devices, but only one of any device, right? In the end, this solution datashet be datasehet cheaper as one 24LC64 datasheeh four 24LC16 chips, and there is no need for some “tricky” decoding.


On the other hand, on page 6 where the control byte is explained, they say that the three bits in the control byte are used to select one of the eight word blocks of the memory.

Addressing of the devices is performed by sending a control byte via the bus. Comments 9 Comments sorted by Date Added Votes.

24LC16B Technical Data

Sign In or Register to comment. 24lx16b say I have an sx set up as a slave on that same bus, and i would like to send some info to only the sx, I could set the address to some abritrary number, but the eeprom would answer to any address, correct?

A while ago, I have developed a system similar to this with up to 5 SXes on one bus. In this system, each of the SXes could act as master and slave, therefore I also had to handle dataasheet arbitration but it worked nicely in the end.

24LC16B Datasheet

Nate, this is strange. Thanks for your help!

Their 01 and 02 devices actually have the three address bits decoded, the 04 device has two bits decoded, the 08 device just one, and the 16 device none at all. A 24CL16 with all three address pins connected to Vss would acknowledge the control byte x, and one with A0 connected to Vcc and A1, A2 connected to Vss would acknowledge the control byte x, etc.


I use the 24LC64 in some of my SX applications with no problems. Quick Links Categories Recent Discussions. John, fortunately, this is not the case. Nate, I was just curious, and got the ST datasheet for their 24C But I could successfully verify that the chips decode the status of the address pins.

Where none of the Micochip equivalents do address decoding at all.

As the address following the control byte is datasheft 8 bits wide, three additional bits are required to cover the full address space of bytes. Nate Post Edited Nate: This doesn’t mean that you couldn’t use more than 1 chip, simply that you cannot use the multiple IC2 address protocall.

I realise that i could probably set the write protect pin of the eeprom, but i would rather just get a different chip. So it would be getting all of the bytes sent to it also.
