A 64 Kbit I²C EEPROM (Microchip 24LC64-I/MS or equivalent) connected to the SODIMM and not the FPGA. It is powered independently by EEPROM_VCC of the FPGA. The purpose of this non-volatile memory is to allow the carrier to query the FOMD-ACV for any information specific to the copy of that unit installed. Because of this, the SDA and SCL lines are connected while the address lines are grounded. For example, customers may put serialization information or IP entitlement data into this EEPROM.
