RTC3 click carries BQ32000, a real time clock with an integrated trickle charge circuit for automatic switchover to a backup power supply (the circuit maintains the backup charge with an onboard super capacitor). The clock frequency is derived from an onboard 32.768KHz oscillator. RTC3 click communicates with the target board microcontroller through mikroBUS™ I2C lines: SCL, SDA. In addition, the INT pin serves as a configurable interrupt output. 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 bq32000 device is a compatible replacement for industry standard real-time clocks. The bq32000 features an automatic backup supply with integrated trickle charger. The backup supply can be implemented using a capacitor or non-rechargeable battery. The bq32000 has a programmable calibration adjustment from –63 ppm to 126 ppm. The bq32000 registers include an OF (oscillator fail) flag indicating the status of the RTC oscillator, as well as a STOP bit that allows the host processor to disable the oscillator.


Board is ideal for applications which require real-time clocks, calendars and programmed alarms.
