About this course

For the users of microcontrollers, there is an impressive range of features and memory sizes available. But, for those times when the data storage requirements aren’t cost effective for an MCU’s internal storage or require better endurance, there is a wide selection of external memories that can quickly and easily fit the need. This class is an overview of external non-volatile memories.  We will discuss the different types, how they operate and why some can wear out, and discuss some of the tradeoffs between the various types in applications where they fit best.
