: Electrically-Erasable Programmable Read -Only Memory
EEPROM (Electrically-Erasable Programmable Read -Only Memory) is an An integrated circuit that stores programs and data in many embedded systems. EEPROM stores retains information even when the power is off. Early EEPROM was expensive on a cost-per-bit basis and was infrequently used. Newer "Flash" EEPROM is much less expensive and its cost-per-bit approaches that of DRAM making Flash EEPROM a very attractive memory device for embedded-systems design.
