r_rtc Module Guide Resources

Last Updated:05/24/2017


Where can I find the references to module guide resources for the RTC HAL module on r_rtc?


Information on the module guide itself and the associated resources and known issues are available here.


The Real-Time Clock (RTC) HAL module is a high-level API for RTC applications and is implemented on r_rtc. The RTC HAL module configures the RTC module and controls clock, calendar, and alarm functions. The RTC uses the real-time clock module on the Synergy MCU. A user-defined callback can be created to respond to any of the three supported interrupt types- alarm, periodic, or carry.

The RTC HAL module supports the following features:

  • RTC peripheral configuration
  • Clock and calendar functions:
  • Alarm, periodic, and carry interrupts
  • Time-capture function
  • Event linkage to other peripherals

Module Guide

The r_rtc HAL module guide is targeted for SSP 1.2.0 and the SK-S7G2 Kit.

The r_rtc HAL module guide describes what the module does, how to add it to your project, how to configure it, the associated APIs and provides an application project with a code walk through so you can quickly learn how to use the r_rtc HAL module in your own design. We recommend that you have the SSP ISDE open and inspect the module stack, configuration information and code while reading over the application project description.

The most recent versions of the RTC HAL module guide application note, application project and import guide are available here

    Module Guide Resources

    • The RTC HAL module is used in the "Wi-Fi Application on SK-S7G2 using Wi-Fi Framework with SSP 1.2.0" available from the Synergy Gallery SSP Page. It is found in the Documentation Tab in the Zip File of all 1.2.0 projects (on the right side guide bar): here
    • The RTC HAL module is used in the Developer Examples available as a template when a project is created in SSP for the DK-S7G2. You can find a Knowledge Base article that describes the Developer Examples and how to create a project using the template here.
