Seems as if there actually can only be one 24LC16 on a bus without additional decoding. Sign In or Register to comment. A while ago, I have developed a system similar to this with up to 5 SXes on one bus.

Hey, you can find the datasheet for the 24LC16 here: Nate, I was just curious, and got the ST datasheet for their 24C I am looking to have possible 4 sx’s set up as slaves, and 1 eeprom and one rtc all set up on the same i2c bus if thats possible.

Thanks for your help! But I could successfully verify that the chips decode the status of the address pins.

Quick Links Categories Recent Discussions. So it would be getting all of the bytes sent to it also. So that means, not only is it limited to only one of those devices, but only one of any device, right? Nate, this is strange.

Addressing of the devices is performed by sending a control byte via the bus. Nate Post Edited Daatasheet I did not use the 24LC16 so far but “smaller” devices, like the 24LC Their 01 and 02 devices actually have the three address bits decoded, the 04 device has two bits decoded, the 08 device just one, and the 16 device none at all.

Gunther, Page vatasheet of said datasheet states that A0, A1, and A2 are not connected in this device. I realise that i could probably set the write protect pin of the eeprom, but i would rather just get a different chip. In this system, each of the SXes could act as master and slave, therefore I also had to handle bus arbitration but it worked nicely in the end.

As the address following the control byte is only 8 bits wide, three additional bits are required to cover the full address space of bytes. I use the 24LC64 in some of my SX applications with no problems.

They definitely allow for eight devices on a bus, and they have two address bytes following the control byte in order to address the full range of the datasyeet. On the other hand, on page 6 where the control byte is explained, they say that the three bits in the control byte are used to select one of the eight word blocks of the memory.


Where none of the Micochip equivalents do address decoding at all. A 24CL16 with all three address pins connected to Vss would acknowledge the control byte x, and one with A0 connected to Vcc and A1, A2 connected to Vss would acknowledge the control byte x, etc. John, fortunately, this is not the case. In the end, this solution my be even cheaper as one 24LC64 replaces four 24LC16 chips, and there is no need for some “tricky” decoding.


This doesn’t mean that you couldn’t use more than 1 chip, simply that you cannot use the multiple IC2 address protocall. Let’s say I have an sx set up as a slave on that same bus, and i would like to send some info to only the sx, I could set the address to some abritrary number, but the eeprom would answer to any address, correct? Maybe, this explains the difference. Comments 9 Comments sorted by Date Added Votes.

Perhaps you consider using 24LC64 chips instead. In these datasheets they also state that the address pins are not connected.
