Low-Current SPI/3-Wire RTCs
The DS1343/DS1344 low-current real-time clocks (RTCs)
are timekeeping devices that provide an extremely low
standby current, permitting longer life from a backup
supply source. The devices also support high-ESR
crystals, broadening the pool of usable crystals for the
devices. The clock/calendar provides seconds, minutes,
hours, day, date, month, and year information. The date
at the end of the month is automatically adjusted for
months with fewer than 31 days, including corrections
for leap year. The clock operates in either 24-hour or
12-hour format with an AM/PM indicator.
Address and data are transferred serially through an
SPI™ or 3-wire interface. Two programmable time-of-day
alarms are provided. Each alarm can generate an inter-
rupt on a combination of seconds, minutes, hours, and
day. Don’t-care states can be inserted into one or more
fields if it is desired for them to be ignored for the alarm
condition. The time-of-day alarms can be programmed
to assert two different interrupt outputs, or they can be
combined to assert one common interrupt output. Both
interrupt outputs operate when the device is powered by
either VCC or VBAT.
The devices are available in a lead-free/RoHS-compliant,
20-pin TSSOP or 14-pin TDFN package, and support a
-40°C to +85°C extended industrial temperature range.
