    RTC5 click carries MCP79510, a real-time clock/calendar with an SPI interface (mikroBUS™ MISO, MOSI, SCK and CS pins); along with a programmable interrupt for system output. The clock frequency is derived from an onboard 32.768KHz oscillator. For backup power, RTC5 click has a coin-cell Lithium polymer battery connector.

    The chip has 64-bytes of battery-backed SRAM and 1 kbit of EEPROM for storing data, along with 128 bits of protected space for storing a unique ID. The clock/calendar automatically compensates for leap years and months shorter than 31 days. The board is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.

    mikroBUS™ is specially designed pinout standard with SPI, I2C, Analog, UART, Interrupt, PWM, Reset and Power supply pins.

    The MCP79510 SPI RTCC is highly integrated with memory and advanced features normally found in higher priced devices. By starting with a basic real-time clock, digital trimming was added for higher accuracy, a battery switchover for backup power, a timestamp to log power failures and three types of memory, which includes SRAM, EEPROM and a blank unique ID in a locked section of EEPROM. The ID is blank in this device, but can also be ordered with a 48-bit or 64-bit MAC Address.

    Applications: which require real-time clocks, calendars and programmed alarms, all through a SPI interface.
