The current "Embedded Control Handbook" is the 1994/1995 edition.
There have been two updates to the ECH... The first, published in
1995, is called "Microchip ECHB Update I: 1995/1996 Supplement"; the
second, published in April 1997, is called "Embedded Control Handbook
Volume 2: Math Library".
The "Serial EEPROM Handbook", which contains data sheets and
appnotes for Microchip's serial EEPROMs, has not been updated since
1994; it seems to have been replaced by the "Non-Volatile Memory
Products Data Book", last published in October 1996, which includes
all the data sheets but omits the appnotes.

The 1997 edition is out I just ordered it from Microchip.

I hope that your not ready for social security by the time that you receive
it from them. In my experience over the last few years, ordering
literature or samples from MICROCHIP does not necessarily seem coorelate
with them intending to ship same to their users and clients. This is
probably the reason that this listserver is so well used!

Another way to get the data you need - contact the companies whose
products you use and ask them for the Product Data CD ROM.
I currently have the following:
Microchip 1997 Technical Library First Edition.
Maxim Product Data Sheets 1997 Edition.
Linear Technology "LinearView" Product Data and Applications V1.0 1996
Texas Instruments "LOGIC" CD ROM Second Edition September 1997
Texas Instruments "InfoNavigator" CD ROM Mixed-Signal and Analog
Duracell Battery Data Guide CD ROM Version 6H
Farnell Semiconductor Data CD ROM Issue 1 and Issue 2
Most of these need Acrobat 3 to view/print the Data Sheets (LinearView
only works with Acrobat 2, supplied with it). Some are self-contained,
but take about 5 Mbytes of Hard Disk space. Acrobat is best, because you
get Data Sheets that look exactly like the ones in the Handbook. Farnell
is the only one that can dial their Web Site if a particular Data Sheet
Most companies are pleased to send you a CD ROM because it is much
cheaper to produce and mail than a Handbook (although not so pleasant to
use). Plus, they can fire almost the entire "documentation fulfilment"
department. Maybe a Web Site is even cheaper to run. But with the
Microchip CD ROM, I have ALL the data, ALL the Appnotes, and ALL the
programming specs. Except that - suddenly I find I've got LAST year's CD
South London UK.
