Nobody talks about it but has anyone ever tested two cycles of 30-year retention? I think it hasn't been on anyone's radar screen until recently. In summary, I'll assume your answer to my question is, "Folklore rules at this point."I don't think it's the age of the EEPROM that matters as much as how often it's been written or how long it's held the same data. I'd assume that an EEPROM that's 100 years old would work just as good as one that was brand new as long as the data it was holding was fresher and it's write endurance was not exceeded? No one ever talks about the age of the EEPROM itself...only it's data retention life and write endurance.
