ch341eeprom

A libusb based programming tool for 24Cxx serial EEPROMs using the WinChipHead CH341A IC

WinChipHead CH341A based programmer

Requirements

  • llvm and make (via Xcode or Xcode Command Line Tools)
  • libusb (perhaps via Homebrew: brew install libusb)

Compiling

After installing the necessary tools and libusb, building ch341eeprom is as simple as running the included Makefile:

make

Usage

Using ch341eeprom is straightforward:

Usage:
 -h, --help             display this text
 -v, --verbose          verbose output
 -d, --debug            debug output
 -s, --size             size of EEPROM {24c01|24c02|24c04|24c08|24c16|24c32|24c64|24c128|24c256|24c512|24c1024}
 -e, --erase            erase EEPROM (fill with 0xff)
 -w, --write <filename> write EEPROM with image from filename
 -r, --read  <filename> read EEPROM and save image to filename

For example:

$ ./ch341eeprom -v -s 24c64 -e
