Microchip’s digital serial number tracking

January 4, 2018 Microchip Technology, Inc.

Imagine free, extra bits buried in your EEPROM that hold a tracking number that can identify every system you ever ship. We did.

All of our Serial Number (“CS” series) EEPROMs come with either 64 or 128 bits of factory pre-programmed serial numbers. Many even have 128 more bits for added tracking detail, and those extra bits can be made permanent — by you — so they can’t be hacked or accidentally changed. You can track when your product was built, when and where it was sold, and even when you run into it again. Serial numbers and tracking numbers permanently coded in extra hidden bits give every system you ship its own personal ID card.

Available in all I2C EEPROM densities from 1 Kbit up to 64 Kbit, these tracking numbers are a fantastic upgrade to any system. Swap one into your current EEPROM socket and add all these extra bits today!
