I need to save telemetry uint8_t data to EEPROM every 2 minutes. And retrieve it once a day. But writing every 2 minutes would require writing 262,800 per year. And I want these B Series to last on average at least 5 years. Thats 1.3 million writes. I will be writing only unsigned 8bit integers per write, so that might help. But, still, I’m hesitant to trust the B Series EEPROM for that kind of volume.
In the Boron EEPROM documentation is this: “Since the data is spread across a large number of flash sectors, flash erase-write cycle limits should not be an issue in general.”
So, should I not be worried about it? Can I write 1.3 million 8bit integers? Does the Particle firmware do good enough of a job of spreading this out that EEPROM will hold up?
