New Module - RTC and Temp Sensor
30 July 2010
We're delighted to announce the first of many in our new modules category.
Ever wanted to learn how to solder surface mount devices?
Hidden on the underside of this tiny module you'll find two surface mount SOIC-sized parts, a Real Time Clock (RTC) and temperature sensor. It's a simple module, and designed to be low cost so you can try your hand at soldering surface mount devices without feeling too bad if you do get it wrong. But we expect that you'll have no problems and end up with a pretty useful module. Of course, because it's an Embedded Adventures module, you'll get complete source code (see the rtc_temp_sensor_module directory in PicPack 3.01), schematic, datasheet, in fact everything you need to make the most of it.
