DS1344:Low-Current SPI/3-Wire RTCs

Compatible with Any 32.768kHz Crystal

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 active-low 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 interrupt 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.
