I know from using the EEPROM as non-volatile storage on the Core that there was a stated limit to the number of times it could be written/overwritten.
I’d like to save a timer value across device reboots, but it’s a “just in case” thing, not a mission critical function. This timer value is updated quite often, so I don’t want to burn out my write “allowance” with it.
I have tried to read through related forum posts and the Photon datasheet, but I see no mention of any such write limitation for the Photon, and a mention that it is “emulated” EEPROM, which suggests to me that it would not have such hardware restrictions.
Does this mean that this limitation no longer exists on the Photon?
If it does, no problem - I saw great instructions on another post for how to add some non-volatile storage. I’m not storing much data, though, so an SD card via I2C or something is massive overkill if I can just use the Photon’s emulated EEPROM without worry of running out of write cycles.
