RTC Odroid C1+ consumption

Unread postby geraldo.gomes » Thu Jun 07, 2018 11:13 pm

Hi,

I need to know how much time the RTC can keep the correct date/time.
I couldn't find any information about the RTC consumption in the S805 datasheet...
So, what's the consumption of the RTC circuitry inside S805 when the power is off from Odroid C1+?

Greetings,

Geraldo Gomes.

RTC in the S805 SoC has a poor performance and we can't recommend it for professional application.
Refer this thread.

Thanks for useful information given.
Our application is no RTC dependent, we use RTC only to log date/time of some events that aren't critical.
Please reply my questions bellow:

1) This expectance of 1~2 years is for Odroid disconnected from power supply along theese 1~2 years?
2) The RTC circuitry consumes power from battery even with power supply connected?
3) How many minutes is the RTC drift per month?

1.) I think the battery life is at least 2 years.

2.) Good question, I'm not sure currently.

3.) It varies by each device, perhaps 1.5 minutes per month.

Hi rooted!
Thanks for your help!
Lets wait for odroid, I hope he we'll give us more certain about these questions.

2) RTC block in the SoC drains power from DC jack. Refer page 16 of schematics. https://dn.odroid.com/S805/Schematics/o ... 160226.pdf
3) It could be up to 5 minutes per month.

So we still recommend using an external RTC-Shield.

It keeps RTC over 5 years with less than 1 minute of draft/month.

Hi odroid,

Thanks for your response.

The life span of battery depends on working temperature, cosumption and others factors.
I must know the consumption of the RTC circuitry to calculate the life of coin cell in my application.

Could you tell me the consumption of the RTC circuitry?

It was around 8~10uA.
