ADS131B04-Q1: Is EEPROM necessary for schematic design?

Part Number: ADS131B04-Q1

Hello TI experts,

my customer is in design stage for their new product.

they saw that there is an EEPROM in EVM.

and also saw the description below in EVM User's guide.


As noted in Section 1, the EVM interfaces with the PHI and communicates with the computer over the USB. There are two devices on the EVM with which the PHI communicates: the ADS131B04-Q1 ADC (over SPI) and the EEPROM (over I 2C). The EEPROM comes pre-programmed with the information required to configure and initialize the ADS131B04-Q1EVM platform. When the hardware is initialized, the EEPROM is no longer used.


My question is,

1. Is EEPROM necessary for initializing?

2. if not, can I store the settings for initializing in MCU and use it with SPI interface?

3. and please give me any information about this matter.

Best regards,
