In this article we will show how to interface the FOX board to a Real Time Clock chip from Dallas/Maxim type DS through the I2C protocol. DS, DS Datasheet, DS Trickle Charge Timekeeping Chip, buy DS Photograph. DS Dallas Semiconductor IC. Real Time Clock – DS This is a VERY simple tutorial on how to use the DS Real Time Clock with an Arduino, or Versilino, board. I will walk you.

That would result in bad clock data. The shipping office is closed from 21 dec up to 7 jan Use it with Arduino 1. Cheap modules with the DS and DS have often problems with the crystal and the voltage. In particular for the Dallas DS RTC chip the support is already enabled in the memory image released with the FOX board, sowhen you connect the chip as explained in the following, it will be immediately used by the operating system without any software adaptation or script changing.

Acme Systems srl provided this documentation “as is” without warranty or guarantees of any kind.

In the proposed circuit as an application example, we used a common lithum battery type CR Please note that all of the software we talking about is Open Source so you have to check any license provided by the software authors before using it in any commercial or non-commercial product, by yourself. The page at maxim for the DS with all information and datasheet: The Year ‘0’ isand not or For more info pleae look at this Forum Post. You are strongly advised to use a DSwhich is very reliable and accurate and needs only a battery to run the crystal is inside the DS The lithium batteries cannot be recharged hence it is necessary to block the DS chip in its recharge battery function.


This circuit has pull-down resistors which are an extra, in many cases they are not needed.

The data in this ram will get lost if the Arduino is off, and the battery or supercap gets empty. The Year data of the DS is only two digits That is also wrong. Sources for Electronic Parts.

To prevent it we posed the pull-up resistor of Ohms. In particular regarding the ground plane to build in the surrounding of the quartz itself. Terms of use of this documentation.

Add a Dallas DS I2C Real Time Clock

Infact, with the DS you could change the lithium battery with xallas rechargeable battery or a supercap if you want, and the chip has the capaility to recharge it when the main power supply is switched on.

In case of sharing please indicate the origin: The code below contains basic interface functions for the DS The Vcc1 is for a battery or a rechargable battery or a supercap. Terms of use of this documentation Terms and conditions Acme Systems srl provided this documentation “as is” without warranty or guarantees of any kind.

They often don’t work very well. That buffer can be read in a single communication session, called a “burst” mode. It has a Leap-Year compensation from up ddallas for a value of For the name of a month, this page contains many languages: You can also see, from the console messages that you can obtain issuing from a telnet session or from the console itself the command: Board Setup and Configuration.

The chip has 31 bytes of ram. The most used date and time functions for the Arduino: So the code has to detect that condition to prevent an extra clock pulse.

The DS can be easily connected to the Arduino. The most used name is “3-wire interface”. At this moment there is no official library for date and time functions for the Arduino.

To prevent that, the DS has a buffer to store the clock data. This line is bidirectional, so when the FOX needs to write data in the peripheral it drives the line, however when the FOX dds1302 to receive data from the peripheral, it sets its line in input mode.


This dallax is obsolete or related to a discontinued product. I was noted that the code could be improved.

If a byte is read, the addres is written first. That way the check for the 7th bit is not needed, since the line is always released. We not provide any direct support for the Open Source software which can running on our board but, through these pages and forum posts, we provide all of the information required to obtain the sources, install, use and update the Open Source software available on Internet.

Other schematics use two 22pF with the crystal. The standard date and time functions like: During reading, the clock could rollover. The last clock pulse of the address using the rising edge is ds13002 the first clock pulse of the data to read using the falling edge.

This is a cheap module with the DS To guarantee the dw1302 stability of the timing it is recommended to follow the hints presented in the datasheet of the DS chip in terms of correct positioning of the Hz quartz. Arduino on other Chips. Some schematics on the internet have pull-up resistors on the three interface lines. The playground is a publicly-editable wiki about Arduino.

To avoid the current flow towards the battery we interposed a series diode D1 and the limiting current resistor R1 of Ohms in such a way that the current can flow from the battery to the RTC and not on the other way.
