I'm trying to determine the life of some EEPROM. I will be erasing a byte (setting to 0x00, clearing a parity bit) as frequently as I will be writing to it. So if setting it to 0x00 counts as a wear cycle, I will effectively be having the number of cycles I can use that address.
Does writing a 0 count as a wear cycle or not?
EDIT: it is the act of flipping a bit back and forth that I am trying to estimate wear on, not writing a 0, since EEPROM is 0xFF when erased. So, if I start with erased memory (0xff) set an address to 0x00, then back to 0xff, then back to 0x00, does this count as two wear cycles or three?
