Rust 24x EEPROM Driver Docs Minimum Supported Rust Version Build Status Coverage Status

This is a platform agnostic Rust driver for the 24x series serial EEPROM, based on the embedded-hal traits.

This driver allows you to:

  • Read a single byte from a memory address. See: read_byte().
  • Read a byte array starting on a memory address. See: read_data().
  • Read the current memory address (please read notes). See: read_current_address().
  • Write a byte to a memory address. See: write_byte().
  • Write a byte array (up to a memory page) to a memory address. See: write_page().

Can be used at least with the devices listed below.

Introductory blog post

The devices

These devices provides a number of bits of serial electrically erasable and programmable read only memory (EEPROM) organized as a number of words of 8 bits each. The devices' cascadable feature allows up to 8 devices to share a common 2-wire bus. The devices are optimized for use in many industrial and commercial applications where low power and low voltage operation are essential.

Device Memory bits 8-bit words Page size Datasheet
24x00 128 bits 16 N/A 24C00

To use this driver, import this crate and an embedded_hal implementation, then instantiate the appropriate device. In the following examples an instance of the device AT24C256 will be created as an example. Other devices can be created with similar methods like: Eeprom24x::new_24x64(...).

Please find additional examples using hardware in this repository: driver-examples

use eeprom24x::{Eeprom24x, SlaveAddr};
use embedded_hal::blocking::delay::DelayMs;
use linux_embedded_hal::{Delay, I2cdev};

fn main() {
    let dev = I2cdev::new("/dev/i2c-1").unwrap();
    let address = SlaveAddr::default();
    let mut eeprom = Eeprom24x::new_24x256(dev, address);
    let memory_address = 0x1234;
    let data = 0xAB;

    eeprom.write_byte(memory_address, data).unwrap();


    let read_data = eeprom.read_byte(memory_address).unwrap();

        "Read memory address: {}, retrieved content: {}",
        memory_address, &read_data

    let _dev = eeprom.destroy(); // Get the I2C device back
