Flash Destroyer EEPROM tester

27 €27.00

Availability: Retired

EEPROMs are usually rated for 1 million write cycles. The Flash_Destroyer writes to an EEPROM until it burns out, the total writes cycles endured is shown on 7-segment LED display. Get a kit of parts for the Flash_Destroyer, designed by DangerousPrototypes.com.
  • All through-hole kit (unassembled)
  • Programmed PIC 18F2550 microcontroller
  • USB upgradable
  • Open source (CC-BY-SA)
Part list:

PCB color for this batch will be yellow.  The picture shows a hand soldered prototype, the kit version will differ slightly. Power supply not included (7v-10v DC supply with a 2.1mm connector is required).
