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.

The data in this ram will get lost if the Dallws is off, and the battery or supercap gets empty. I was noted that the code could be improved. This line is bidirectional, so when the FOX needs to write data in the peripheral it drives the line, however when the FOX has to receive data from the peripheral, it sets its line in input mode.

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, sallas, use and update the Open Source software available on Internet. 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.

The Year ‘0’ isand not or That is also wrong. Arduino on other Chips. Board Setup and Configuration. The most used name is “3-wire interface”. That would result in bad clock data. It has a Leap-Year compensation from up to for dallxs value of This is a cheap module with the DS The standard date and time functions like: The playground is a publicly-editable wiki about Arduino.


Daplas, with the DS you could change the lithium battery with a 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. For more info pleae look at this Forum Post. A crystal of To prevent that, the DS has a buffer to store the clock data.

That way the check for the 7th bit is not needed, since the line is always released. Other schematics use two 22pF with the crystal. They often don’t work very well.

At this moment there is no official library for date and time functions for the Arduino. Terms of use of this documentation. So the code has to detect that condition to prevent an extra clock pulse.

Cheap modules with the DS and DS have often problems with the crystal and the voltage. If a byte is read, the addres is written first.

The code below contains basic interface functions for the DS Use it with Arduino 1. The Year data of the Daloas is only two digits The most used date and time functions for the Arduino: In particular regarding the ground plane to build in the surrounding of the quartz itself.

The chip has 31 bytes of ram. 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 During reading, the clock could rollover.

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. For the name of a month, this page contains many languages: This article is obsolete or related to a discontinued product.


Related Hardware and Initiatives. The last clock pulse of the address using the rising edge is also the first clock pulse of the data to read using the falling edge. See the datasheet for full specifications and a circuit. The DS can be easily connected to the Arduino. You can also see, from the console messages that you can obtain issuing from a telnet session or from the console itself the command: In the proposed circuit as an application example, we used a common lithum battery type CR In case of sharing please indicate the origin: To guarantee the best 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.

This circuit has pull-down resistors which are an extra, in many cases they are not needed. Sources for Electronic Parts. Some schematics on the internet have pull-up resistors on the three interface lines.

The lithium batteries cannot be recharged hence it is necessary to block the DS chip in its recharge battery function. The chip will be read by the Linux dallax through the I2C interface signals. To prevent it we posed the pull-up resistor of Ohms. The page at maxim for the DS with all information and datasheet: The shipping office is closed from 21 dec up to 7 jan That buffer can be read in a single communication session, called a “burst” mode.

The Vcc1 is for a battery or a rechargable battery or a supercap.
