General Description

The RTC Component is a counter that tracks the real time in hardware, applying a periodic clock correction if necessary (when the input clock does not divide exactly into a whole number of counts). The Component can be configured to generate periodic interrupts with a maximum frequency of 2Hz, alarm interrupts at specific times of the day or week, and timer interrupts at a number of seconds in the future. The 2Hz internal clock can be output to a device pin (RTCCO).
