Microchip Releases New SPI Real-Time Clock

New, Battery-Backed RTCC Devices Include Faster, 10 MHz SPI Interface, Watchdog Timer, Event Detects and More Memory

Click for Larger Image - Microchip New SPI Real-Time Clock Microchip have just announced a new family of stand-alone Real-Time Clock/Calendar (RTCC) devices. The MCP795WXX/BXX RTCC devices have a 10 MHz SPI interface, non-volatile memory and an effective combination of features at a price lower than most competitors’ devices, including those with fewer features. The new devices reduce component counts and costs for applications in the smart-energy (e.g., thermostats, power meters and commercial refrigeration); home-appliance (e.g., coffee makers, stoves and microwave ovens); automotive (e.g., dashboard controls, car radios and GPS); consumer-electronic (e.g., office equipment and video systems); and communications markets (e.g., radios, cordless phones, and network systems), among others.

The MCP795WXX/BXX RTCC devices feature millisecond alarms and a 10 MHz SPI interface that supports very fast data access, resulting in longer MCU sleep and power-down modes, and less power draw from the battery. Other low-power features include two event-detect inputs that draw minimal current in the RTCC device, but wake the MCU when events such as a switch press or system tampering have occurred. Additionally, the devices include three types of non-volatile memory—EEPROM, SRAM and a Unique ID—which can be ordered blank or with a pre-programmed MAC address, as a standard product to further reduce component counts and lower costs associated with serialized programming. Along with the automatic battery switchover for backup power, a power-fail time stamp logs the time and duration of any power failure and, for accurate timekeeping over a broad temperature range, the devices feature a wide digital-trimming range that compensates for crystal frequency drift over temperature. In designs that need a low-frequency clock source, a boot-clock option in the RTCC can provide a 32 KHz clock output at power-up and eliminate the need for a second crystal.
