Nonvolatile RAM on single board computers

Date: Tue May 18 22:05:02 2004

I have a SBC with nonvolatile RAM on it. There are
DRAM and EPROM too. I guess the nonvolatile RAM might
be used to hold some important parameters while EPROM
is used to hold program.

Since nonvolatile RAM has limited life, I wonder how
you guys deal with nonvolatile RAM in your old
computers. Reading out the content with a EPROM
programmer is a solution that jumps into my mind.
"Burn" a new nonvolatile RAM and wait for another 10
years? It seems a boring work...
