Does the NVSRAM have any function to count the number of times STORE is done?

Question:

Does the NVSRAM have any function to count the number of times STORE is done? If the NVSRAM does not have any count function, then what method can be used to count the number of STORE times?

 

Answer:

The NVSRAM does not have any function for counting the number of times STORE is done. The STORE can be initiated in three ways:

1. AutoStore (Automatic Store when power goes off)
2. Software STORE (User triggered)
3. Hardware STORE (User triggered)

Further, to save the number of STORE cycles, Hardware STORE and AutoStore are not triggered if no write has happened after previous RECALL operation.
Therefore, in order to count the number of STORES to non-volatile memory, the occurrence of any of the above mentioned three conditions may be counted.
