FLASH LIFE CYCLE QUESTION

Hello!

 

I have a question about writing to the internal 16k flash of my HS08JM16. The life cycle count is 100k. My project is to take accelerometer data for about 5 seconds, then save it to the flash. I've been doing some research and have found erase commands and also a byte write command. However, if one set of data is 1kb, and if I have to do single writes to the flash, does this mean that my flash will only last 100 runs? Is there a way to program a whole page of data? Any and all information with regards to writing multiple bytes to the flash and if there is a way to write more than one byte at a time would be appreciated. If I can write all 1kb to the flash in 1 write cycle, that would be the best scenario.

 

Thanks!

David
