For example: in alarm application after the alarm occur it should set back to original state, to set back it to original state the user must give an interrupt to the RTC.
Battery is connected to the Vdd for uninterrupted power supply, even if the main supply voltage is turned off. The operating voltages are 1V- 5V.
CLKOUT: for all the application we cannot use khz clock for other application we may need small clock like 32 Hz, 1 Hz for microcontroller clock, input to the charge pump etc. Through these pins only data is exchanged between the other peripherals and RTC.
Functional Features of PCF Provides year, month, day, weekday, hours, minutes, and seconds based on a khz quartz crystal. Battery backup input pin and switch-over circuit. Freely programmable timer and alarm with interrupt capability.
Open-drain interrupt or clock output pins. Programmable offset register for frequency adjustment.
PIC is available in different architectural like 8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit. According to the application we can use the architecture.
For example, if you want your alarm to include hours and minutes, bit 7 needs to be set to 1 for the hour and minute alarm register. Checking if the alarm has occurred can be done with two methods — software and hardware.
Then you can turn the alarm off by setting that bit to zero. Using hardware, first set bit 1 of register 0x01 to 1 — then whenever an alarm occurs, current can flow into pin 3 of the PCF To turn off this current, you need to turn off the alarm flag bit as mentioned earlier.
Do something to tell the user Serial. The interrupt pin is also set to activate at the end of this function, however you can remove that part of the code if unnecessary. In this function you can add code to take action for your required needs.
It also calls the function: void PCFalarmOff which retrieves the contents of the register at 0x01, sets the AF bit to zero and writes it back.
We do this to preserve the status of the other bits in that register.
