« on: August 12, 2016, 01:32:13 PM »
trying to get the rfduino working with this library on a real time clock chip PFC8563?

https://github.com/elpaso/Rtc_Pcf8563

seems to compile ok in the arduino IDE but locks up and no error output!  any help appreciated!

thanks

In case you consider the DS3231, I have experience using it.

thanks but i was trying to use the PCF since it's so much cheaper compared to the DS chips...

found this post that i got to work here:
http://tronixstuff.com/2013/08/13/tutorial-arduino-and-pcf8563-real-time-clock-ic/
will see if i cant convert it to a class, my C is quite rusty
