Definitions Edit

Electrically-Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM) is

non-volatile memory (i.e., it does not lose its data if power is shut off) and is read/write memory for the storage of data.[1]
[a] method of storing data on microchips. Usually bytes can be erased and reprogrammed individually.[2]

Overview (RFID) Edit

RFID tags that use EEPROM are more expensive than factory programmed [[[tag]]s, where the number is written into the silicon when the chip is made, but they offer more flexibility because the end user can write an ID number to the tag at the time the tag is going to be used.[3]
