ADC128S102EVM: EEPROM Functional purpose

Part Number: ADC128S102EVM
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADC128S102,

Tool/software:

Hi Team,

I want to design a PCB with ADC128S102 using the PHI motherboard of the ADC128S102EVM.

I can replicate the connections as appear in the schematics of the ADC128S102EVM but I'm not sure if the EEPROM is necessary.
If it is necessary is there something needs to be write down to it by the I2C interface? any other preparations?

Please Advise.

Thanks,
Moral.
