Setting a Real Time Clock (RTC) With an Arduino Pro Micro

About: We bring hardware products to life, specializing in engineering, prototyping, and mass manufacturing. We've worked with over 20 Kickstarter projects.


For a lot of projects, you need to be able to know the real time. It being precise seconds, the time of the day, or the date of the month, a RTC Real Time Clock Module is the answer to that need.

With low-power consumption, advanced accuracy, calibration and 2 alarm features, our Real Time Clock and Calendar Module based on the Microchip MCP79401 RTC, is packed with functionality!

What You Will Need:
ARDUINO PRO MINI 328 - 5V/16MHZ
5V FTDI BASIC USB TO SERIAL CONVERTER
REAL TIME CLOCK MODULE
Jumper Wires
