Using C and a timer to interface MSP430 MCUs with UNI/O bus-compatible serial EEPROMs

Keywords:embedded systems? MCU? EEPROM?

As embedded systems become smaller, a growing need exists to minimize I/O pin usage for communication between devices. Microchip Technology has addressed this need by developing the UNI/O bus, a low-cost, easy-to-implement solution requiring only a single I/O pin for bidirectional communication.

UNI/O bus-compatible serial EEPROMs can be used to enhance any application facing restrictions on available I/O. Such restrictions can potentially stem from connectors, board space or from the MCU itself.

The 11XXX family is the newest addition to Microchip's broad serial EEPROM product line, and is compatible with the newly developed UNI/O bus.
