We build dataloggers, and our current product uses I2C interfaced
EEPROM. MicroChip makes some, as do Atmel, Xicor, and maybe ST
Microelectronics. Some are EE, some are Flash.
Watch out for the endurance specs, and make sure your applicaiton is
smart about how many re-writes it does, how often.
If you want removable cards, look at SanDisk's MultiMedia Cards, or
ISSI's SerialFlash, or MediaStick. There's another new one that's
used on complex cell phones, too...
Many of the datalogger boxes that have come out lately use battery or
supercap backed SRAM, 'cause its so cheap per bit. But the parallel
interface ones use a lot of PIC pins.
