The CAT28C64B is a fast, low power, 5V-only CMOS The CAT28C64B is manufactured using Catalyst’s ad-
Parallel E2PROM organized as 8K x 8-bits. It requires a vanced CMOS floating gate technology. It is designed to
simple interface for in-system programming. On-chip endure 100,000 program/erase cycles and has a data
address and data latches, self-timed write cycle with retention of 100 years. The device is available in JEDEC-
