SEEPROM(4)              NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual             SEEPROM(4)

NAME
     seeprom -- 24-series I2C EEPROM driver

SYNOPSIS
     seeprom0 at iic0 addr 0x51: AT24Cxx or compatible EEPROM: size 256
     seeprom16 at iic1 addr 0x57: power-supply: size 8192

DESCRIPTION
     The seeprom driver provides support for the ATMEL 24-series of I2C EEP-
     ROMs, and compatibles, available from a variety of vendors.  The Philips
     PCF8582 is also supported, as compatible with the AT24C02.

     Access to the contents of the memory is through a character device.

     The size of the EEPROM is either read from the firmware, or can be set
     using the flags keyword in the kernel configuration.  The value of the
     flag represents the EEPROM size in Kbit.

EXAMPLES
     Indirect configuration:
           seeprom* at iic? addr 0x51 flags 0x2
     Direct configuration:
           seeprom* at iic? addr?

HISTORY
     The seeprom device appeared in NetBSD 2.0.

BUGS
     AT24C1024 EEPROM's are not supported.

     Software write protection on the AT34Cxx EEPROMs is not supported.

     The seeprom driver reads and writes one byte at a time to be compatible
     with all controllers.
