Q MICROCHIP
Serial Real-Time Clock/Calendar
Low-Cost Timekeeping Solution
Summary
Microchip’s portfolio of Real-Time Clock/Calendars
(RTCCs) offer low-cost system timekeeping solution. Real-
Time Clock/Calendars track time with resolutions as small
as 1/100th of a second and issue alarms on a wide variety
of time conditions.
The RTCC maintains accurate time through system
shutdowns by automatically switching over to an external
battery back-up source. RTCC’s are designed to operate
using a 32.768 kHz quartz crystal and can digitally
compensate for frequency variance caused by crystal
tolerance and temperature. Microchip RTCC’s have a I2C™
or SPI interface for configuration, reading and writing the
time. Additionally, alarm interrupt requests, square wave
output and system reset control signals are available on
dedicated pins.
Microchip’s RTCCs are available with a range of internal
memories including battery-backed SRAM, non-volatile
EEPROM and an additional area of protected EEPROM.
The protected EEPROM area is only writable after the
RTCC receives an unlock sequence and is available
pre-programmed with unique EUI-48™ or EUI-64™ MAC
address. Custom programming is also available.
Key Features and Benefits
Features Benefits
Automated timekeeping Offload timekeeping tasks, including leap year management to the RTCC
Dual alarms System controller can attend to other tasks and have the RTCC indicate a specific time has been reached
Battery back-up Maintain time through system powerdowns and preserve SRAM contents
Time stamp Capture the time when system power was lost and restored
Versatile clock-out/alarm/output pin The RTCC can produce a squarewave for the system, or wake a processor from a low-power state on a time
match to indicate an alarm has occurred
64-bytes battery backed SRAM Unlimited endurance non-volatile data storage for data that needs to be maintained through a shutdown
Digital oscillator trimming/calibration Adjust for crystal frequency tolerance and drift to maintain accurate time
Up to 128-bit protected EEPROM area Robust non-volatile storage. Only writable after an unlock sequence
Pre-programmed EUI MAC ID Unique identifier in every device which can be used as a serial number or as a network MAC ID. Using a pre-
programmed MAC ID avoids the expense of purchasing an ID block and serialized programming
Up to 2 Kb general purpose EEPROM Long-term storage of parameters, system modes, calibration information and data through shutdowns
Watch-dog timer Guards against the controller software getting trapped in a loop or awaiting an event
Debounced input event detect Places the system controller in a low-power state and has the RTCC detect a true event from a noisy sensor
Transition count event detect The RTCC can alert the system once it records a specific number of logic-level transitions on a signal, allowing
monitoring to be delegated to the RTCC

Power-Fail Time-Stamp Development Tools from Microchip
To support our Real-Time Clock/Calendar products, we
offer two PICtail™ daughter boards, each with a
characterized crystal oscillator circuit and an on-board
coin cell battery for use as a back-up supply. Compatible
code development platforms include the PICDEM™ PIC18
Explorer Board (DM183032) and the Explorer 16
Development Board (DM240001).
