[etherlab-users] Writing to a blank EEPROM

Hello, I'm still a bit new to Etherlab and Ethercat, so I apologize for 
a potentially obvious question.

Is it possible for the Ethercat Master to write to a blank slave EEPROM. 
Is default EEPROM data required to bootstrap the slave and allow the 
Master to recognize it?

I ask because I am developing a custom ET1200 slave board and am not 
sure if I need to pre-burn the EEPROM before soldering it to the board. 
Any general advice for this application would be very much appreciated.

Thank you,
