Status: In Production
The MCP79400 general purpose I2CTM Compatible real-time clock/calendar (RTCC) is highly integrated with memory and advanced features normally found in higher priced devices. These features include a battery switchover circuit for backup power, a timestamp to log power failures and digital trimming for accuracy. Using a low-cost 32,768 kHz crystal or other clock source, time is tracked in either a 12-hour or 24-hour format with an AM/PM indicator and timing to the second, minute, hour, day of the week, day, month and year. As an interrupt or wakeup signal, a multifunction open drain output can be programmed as an Alarm Out or as a Clock Out that supports 4 selectable frequencies. In addition to the SRAM memory, there a unique ID in a locked section of EEPROM that can be unlocked and programmed by the end user.
The MCP7941X RTCC PICtail™ Plus Daughter Board demonstrates the features and abilities of the MCP7941X and MCP7940X I²C™ Real-Time Clock/Calendar family in standard development platforms. By designing this daughter board with the PICtail Plus, PICtail and PICkit™ serial connectors, it will operate with the Explorer 16 Development Board, the PICDEM PIC18 Explorer Board, the...
