Add real-time clock and calendar functionality to the design using the RTC PROTO Board. This accessory board employs a PCF8583 real-time clock and calendar chip that allows user to keep record of the current time even when the microcontroller is turned off. It features an alarm function and can be used to generate an interrupt as well. The real-time clock is driven by a coin-cell battery which is included.
This board allows easy and quick access to the real time and date along with corrections for leap year. RTC PROTO Board allows easy connection to standard prototyping boards using five pin pads that have a standard 0.1
