RTC Click is an accessory board in mikroBus form factor. It features the NXP PCF8583 serial real-time clock (RTC). It is a low-power, full binary-coded decimal (BCD) clock/calendar — 24- or 12-hour clock format with four-year calendar. The board uses I2C interface for communication and features a 3V/230mA lithium battery as a backup power supply which ensures that timekeeping operation continues even when the main power supply goes off. The board is set to use 3.3V power supply by default. Solder the PWR SEL SMD jumper to the 5V position if you need to use this board with 5V systems.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. Newer (v7) development systems manufactured by mikroElektronika, which we carry, have mikroBUS sockets already built in.
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
