Chip Tip: RTC Modules from Micro Crystal
Comapct, complete and correct
For electronic circuitry requiring time of day it’s not always possible to obtain this information over the Internet from a time server or by radio from a time code transmitter. Even when it is, there will still be occasions when the Internet connection or radio reception fails. Precisely for this purpose special RTC or ‘real-time clock’ ICs are made.
