- Equipped with PCF8523 RTC - it can run from 3.3V or 5V power & logic!
- Perfect for data-logging, clock-building, time stamping, timers, and alarms, etc
- Simple and inexpensive but not a high-precision device
- Will keep time for 5 years or more
This is a great battery-backed real time clock (RTC) that allows your microcontroller project to keep track of time even if it is reprogrammed, or if the power is lost. Perfect for data-logging, clock-building, time stamping, timers, and alarms, etc. Equipped with PCF8523 RTC - it can run from 3.3V or 5V power & logic!
We've had a breakout board version of this RTC for a while, but we want to make it even easier for folks to use, so now it comes with STEMMA QT connectors for plug-and-play simplicity.
Works great with an Arduino using Adafruit's RTC library, with CircuitPython, or with a Raspberry Pi (or similar single board linux computer)
This board/chip uses I2C 7-bit address 0x68
