The 10 Hz clock is gated with the 32.768 kHz crystal frequency to provide clock setting pulses of 15.26 ms duration. The setting pulse drives all the time registers on the device which are synchronously clocked by this signal. All time data and data-changed flag change on the falling edge of the clock setting pulse. The NS32FX211 is a bus oriented microprocessor real time clock. Crystal Oscillator This consists of a CMOS inverter/amplifier with an on-chip bias resistor. Externally a 22 pF capacitor, a 6 pF– 40 pF trimmer capacitor and a crystal are suggested to complete the 32.768 kHz timekeeping oscillator circuit. The 6 pF – 40 pF trimmer fine tunes the crystal load impedance, optimizing the oscillator stability. When properly adjusted (i.e., to the crystal frequency of 32.768 kHz), the circuit will display a frequency variation with voltage of less than 3 ppm/V. When an external oscillator is used, connect to oscillator input and float (no connection) the oscillator output. When the chip is enabled into test mode, the oscillator is gated onto the interrupt output pin giving a buffered oscillator output that can be used to set the crystal frequency when the device is installed in a system. Data-Changed Flag The data-changed flag is set by the clock setting pulse to indicate that the time data has been altered since the clock was last read. This flag occupies bit 3 of the control register where it can be tested by the processor to sense datachanged. It will be reset by a read of the control register. See the section, ‘‘Methods of Device Operation’’, for suggested clock reading techniques using this flag. Seconds Counters There are three counters for seconds: a. tenths of seconds b. units of seconds c. tens of seconds The registers are accessed at the addresses shown in Table I. The tenths of seconds register is reset to 0 when the clock start/stop bit (bit 2 of the control register) is set to Divider Chain The crystal oscillator is divided down in three stages to produce a 10 Hz frequency setting pulse. The first stage is a non-integer divider which reduces the 32.768 kHz input to 20.720 kHz. This is further divided by a 9-stage binary ripple counter giving an output frequency of 60 Hz.

The units and tens of seconds are set up by the processor, giving time setting to the nearest second. All three registers can be read by the processor for time output. Days Counters There are two days counters: a. units of day b. tens of days The days counters will count up to 28, 29, 30 or 31 depending on the state of the months counters and the leap year counter. The microprocessor has full read/write access to these registers. Minutes Counters There are two minutes counters: a. units of minutes b. tens of minutes Both registers may be read to or written from as required. Hours Counters There are two hours counters: a. units of hours b. tens of hours Both counters may be accessed for read or write operations as desired. In 12-hour mode, the tens of hours register has only one active bit and the top three bits are set to logic 0. Data bit 1 of the clock setting register is the AM/PM indicator; logic 0 indicating AM, logic 1 for PM. When 24-hour mode is programmed, the tens of hours register reads out two bits of data and the two most significant bits are set to logic 0. There is no AM/PM indication and bit 1 of the clock setting register will read out a logic 0. In both 12/24-hour modes, the units of hours will read out four active data bits. 12 or 24-hour mode is selected by bit 0 Months Counters There are two months counters: a. units of months b. tens of months Both these counters have full read/write access. Years Counters There are two years counters: a. units of years b. tens of years Both these counters have full read/write access. The years will count up to 99 and roll over to 00. 5 Functional Description (Continued) TABLE I.

It is clocked when the hours counter rolls from 11:59 to 12:00 in 12-hour mode. In 24-hour mode this bit is set to logic 0. The 12/24-hour mode set determines whether the hours counter counts from 1 to 12 or from 0 to 23. It also controls the AM/PM indicator, enabling it for 12-hour mode and forcing it to logic 0 for the 24-hour mode. The 12/24-hour mode bit is set to logic 0 for 12-hour mode and it is set to logic 1 for 24-hour mode. IMPORTANT NOTE: Hours mode and AM/PM bits cannot be set in the same write operation. See the section on Initialization (Methods of Device Operation) for a suggested setting routine. Day of Week Counter The day of week counter increments as the time rolls from 23:59 to 00:00 (11:59 PM to 12:00 AM in 12-hour mode). It counts from 1 to 7 and rolls back to 1. Any day of the week may be specified as day 1. Clock Setting Register/Interrupt Register The interrupt select bit in the control register determines which of these two registers is accessible to the processor at address 15. Normal clock and interrupt timing operations will always continue regardless of which register is selected onto the bus. The layout of these registers is shown in Table II. The clock setting register is comprised of three separate functions: a. leap year counter: bits 2 and 3 b. AM/PM indicator: bit 1 c. 12/24-hour mode set: bit 0 (see Table IIA). The leap year counter is a 2-stage binary counter which is clocked by the months counter. It changes state as the time rolls over from 11:59 on December 31 to 00:00 on January 1. The counter should be loaded with the ‘number of years since last leap year’ e.g., if 1980 was the last leap year, a clock programmed in 1983 should have 3 stored in the leap year counter. If the clock is programmed during a leap year, then the leap year counter should be set to 0. The contents of the leap year counter can be read by the mP. All bits in the clock setting register may be read by the processor. The interrupt register controls the operation of the timer for interrupt output. The processor programs this register for single or repeated interrupts at the selected time intervals. The lower three bits of this register set the time delay period that will occur between interrupts. The time delays that can be programmed and the data words that select these are outlined in Table IIB. Data bit 3 of the interrupt register sets for either single or repeated interrupts; logic 0 gives single mode, logic 1 sets for repeated mode. Using the interrupt is described in the Device Operation section. 6 Functional Description (Continued) TABLE IIA.

A logic 1 written into the test bit puts the device into test mode. This allows setting of the oscillator frequency. For normal operation the test bit is loaded with logic 0. The clock start/stop bit stops the timekeeping of the clock and resets to 0 the tenths of seconds counter. The time of day may then be written into the various clock registers and the clock restarted synchronously with an external time source. Timekeeping is maintained thereafter. A logic 1 written to the start/stop bit halts clock timing. Timing is restarted when the start/stop bit is written with a logic 0. The interrupt select bit determines which of the two registers mapped onto address 15 will be accessed when this address is selected. A logic 0 in the interrupt select bit makes the clock setting register available to the processor. A logic 1 selects the interrupt register. The interrupt start/stop bit controls the running of the interrupt timer. It is programmed in the same way as the clock start/stop bit; logic 1 to halt the interrupt and reset the timer, logic 0 to start interrupt timing. When no interrupt is programmed (interrupt control register set to 0), the interrupt start/stop bit is automatically set to a logic 1. When any new interrupt is subsequently programmed, timing will not commence until the start/stop bit is loaded with 0. In the single interrupt mode, interrupt timing stops when a timeout occurs. The processor restarts timing by writing logic 0 into the start/stop bit. In repeated interrupt mode the interrupt timer continues to count with no intervention by the processor necessary. Control Register There are three registers which control different operations of the clock: a. the clock setting register b. the interrupt register c. the control register The clock setting and interrupt registers both reside at address 15, access to one or the other being controlled by the interrupt select bit; data bit 1 of the control register. The clock setting register programs the timekeeping of the clock. The 12/24-hour mode select and the AM/PM indicator for 12-hour mode occupy bits 0 and 1, respectively. Data bits 2 and 3 set the leap year counter. The interrupt register controls the operation of the interrupt timer, selecting the required delay period and either single or repeated interrupt. The control register is responsible for controlling the operations of the clock and supplying status information to the processor. It appears as two different registers; one with write only access and one with read only access. The write only register consists of a bank of four latches which control the internal processes of the clock. The read only register contains two output data latches which will supply status information for the processor. Table III shows the mapping of the various control latches and status flags in the control register. The control register is located at address 0. The write only portion of the control register contains four latches: 7 Functional Description (Continued) TABLE III.

The clock setting register is now selected by the interrupt select bit. 5) Write 0001 to all registers. This ensures starting with a valid BCD value in each register. 6) Set 12/24 Hours Mode: Write to the clock setting register to select the hours counting mode required. 7) Load Real-Time Registers: All time registers (including Leap Years and AM/PM bit) may now be loaded in any order. Note that when writing to the clock setting register to set up Leap Years and AM/PM, the Hours Mode bit must not be altered from the value programmed in step 5. 8) Write 0 to the control register: This operation finishes the clock initialization by starting the time. The final control register write should be synchronized with an external time source. In general, timekeeping should be halted before the time data is altered in the clock. The data can, however, be altered at any time if so desired. Such may be the case if the user wishes to keep the clock corrected without having to stop and restart it; i.e., winter/summer time changing can be accomplished without halting the clock. This can be done in software by sensing the state of the data-changed flag and only altering time data just after the time has rolled over (data-changed flag set). Interrupt timing may be stopped in either mode by writing a logic 1 into the interrupt start/stop bit. The timer is reset and can be restarted in the normal way, giving a full time delay period before the next interrupt. In general, the control register is set up such that writing 0’s into it will start anything that is stopped, pull the clock out of test mode and select the clock setting register onto the bus. In other words, writing 0 will maintain normal clock operation and restart interrupt timing, etc. The read only portion of the control register has two status outputs: Since the NS32FX211 keeps real time, the time data changes asynchronously with the processor and this may occur while the processor is reading time data out of the clock. Some method of warning the processor when the time data has changed must thus be included. This is provided for by the data-changed flag located in bit 3 of the control register. This flag is set by the clock setting pulse which also clocks the time registers. Testing this bit can tell the processor whether or not the time has changed. The flag is cleared by a read of the control register but not by any write operations. No other register read has any effect on the state of the data-changed flag. Data bit 0 is the interrupt flag. This flag is set whenever the interrupt timer times out, pulling the interrupt output low. In a polled interrupt routine the processor can test this flag to determine if the NS32FX211 was the interrupting device. This interrupt flag and the interrupt output are both cleared by a read of the control register. Both of the flags and the interrupt output are reset by the trailing edge of the read strobe. The flag information is held latched during a control register read, guaranteeing that stable status information will always be read out by the processor. Interrupt timeout is detected and stored internally if it occurs during a read of the control register, the interrupt output will then go low only after the read has been completed. A clock setting pulse occurring during a control register read will not affect the data-changed flag since time data read out before or after the control read will not be affected by the time change. Reading the Time Registers Using the data-changed flag technique supports microprocessors with block move facilities, as all the necessary time data may be read sequentially and then tested for validity as shown below. 1) Read the control register, address 0: This is a dummy read to reset the data-changed flag (DCF) prior to reading the time registers. 2) Read time registers: All desired time registers are read out in a block. 3) Read the control register and test DCF: If DCF is cleared (logic 0), then no clock setting pulses have after occurred since step 1. All time data is guaranteed good and time reading is complete. If DCF is set (logic 1), then a time change has occurred since step 1 and time data may not be consistent. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until DCF is clear. The control read of step 3 will have reset DCF, automatically repeating the step 1 action. Initialization When it is first installed and power is applied, the NS32FX211 will need to be properly initialized. The following operation steps are recommended when the device is set up (all numbers are decimal): 1) Disable interrupt on the processor to allow oscillator setting. Write 1510 into the control register: The clock and interrupt start/stop bits are set to 1, ensuring that the clock and interrupt timers are both halted. Test mode and the interrupt register are selected. 8 Functional Description (Continued) APPLICATION HINTS Interrupt Programming The interrupt timer generates interrupts at time intervals which are programmed into the interrupt register. A single interrupt after delay or repeated interrupts may be programmed. Table IIB lists the different time delays and the data words that select them in the interrupt register. Once the interrupt register has been used to set up the delay time and to select for single or repeat, it takes no further part in the workings of the interrupt system. All activity by the processor then takes place in the control register. Initializing: 1) Write 3 to the control register (AD0): Clock timing continues, interrupt register selected and interrupt timing stopped. Time Reading Using Interrupt In systems such as point of sale terminals and data loggers, time reading is usually only required on a random demand basis. Using the data-changed flag as outlined in the section on methods of operation is ideal for this type of system. Some systems, however, need to sense a change in real time; e.g., industrial timers/process controllers, TV/VCR clocks, any system where real time is displayed. The interrupt timer on the NS32FX211 can generate interrupts synchronously with the time registers changing, using software to provide the initial synchronization. In single interrupt mode the processor is responsible for initiating each timing cycle and the timed period is accurate to g 1 ms. In repeated interrupt mode the period from the initial processor start to the first timeout is also only accurate to g 1 ms. The following interrupts maintain accurate delay periods relative to the first timeout. Thus, to utilize interrupt to control time reading, we will use repeated interrupt mode. In repeated mode the time period between interrupts is exact, which means that timeouts will always occur at the same point relative to the internal clock setting pulses. The case for 0.1s interrupts is shown in Figure A-1 . The same is true for other delay periods, only there will be more clock setting pulses between each interrupt timeout. If we set up the interrupt timer so that interrupt always times out just after the clock setting pulse occurs (Figure A-2) , then there is no need to test the data-changed flag as we know that the time data has just changed and will not alter again for another 100 ms. This can be achieved as outlined below: 1) Follow steps 1 and 2 of the section on interrupt programming. In step 2 set up for repeated interrupt. 2) Read control register AD0: This is a dummy read to reset the data-changed flag. 2) Write interrupt control word to address 15: The interrupt register is loaded with the correct word (chosen from Table IIB) for the time delay required and for single or repeated interrupts. 3) Write 0 or 2 to the control register: Interrupt timing commences. Writing 0 selects the clock setting register onto the data bus; writing 2 leaves the interrupt register selected. Normal timekeeping remains unaffected. On Interrupt: Read the control register and test for Interrupt Flag (bit 0). If the flag is cleared (logic 0), then the device is not the source of the interrupt. If the flag is set (logic 1), then the clock did generate an interrupt. The flag is reset and the interrupt output is cleared by the control register read that was used to test for interrupt. Single Interrupt Mode: When appropriate, write 0 or 2 to the control register to restart the interrupt timer. Repeated Interrupt Mode: Timing continues, synchronized with the control register write which originally started interrupt timing. No further intervention is necessary from the processor to maintain timing. In either mode interrupt timing can be stopped by writing 1 into the control register (interrupt start/stop set to 1). Timing for the full delay period recommences when the interrupt start/stop bit is again loaded with 0 as normal. IMPORTANT NOTE: Using the interrupt timer places a constraint on the maximum Read Strobe width which may be applied to the clock. Normally all registers may be read from with a tRW down to DC (i.e., CS and RD held continuously low). When the interrupt timer is active however, the maximum read strobe width that can be applied to the control register (Addr 0) is 30 ms. This restriction is to allow the interrupt timer to properly reset when it times out. Note that it only affects reading of the control registerÐall other addresses in the clock may be accessed with DC read strobes, regardless of the state of the interrupt timer. Writes to any address are unaffected. 3) Read control register AD0 until data-changed flag is set. 4) Write 0 or 2 to control register. Interrupt timing commences. Time Reading with Very Slow Read Cycles If a system takes longer than 100 ms to complete reading of all the necessary time registers (e.g., when CMOS processors are used) or where high level interpreted language routines are used, then the data-changed flag will always be set when tested and is of no value. In this case, the time registers themselves must be tested to ensure data accuracy. The technique below will detect both time changing between read strobes (i.e., between reading tens of minutes and units of hours) and also time changing during read, which can produce invalid data. 1) Read and store the value of the lowest order time register required. 9 Functional Description (Continued) In general, the rule is that the first and last reads must both be of the lowest order time register. These two values can then be compared to ensure that no change has occurred. This technique works because for any higher order time register to change, all the lower order registers must also change. If the lowest order register does not change, then no higher order register has changed either. 2) Read out all the time registers required. The registers may be read out in any order, simplifying software requirements. 3) Read the lowest order register and compare it with the value stored previously in step 1. If it is still the same, then all time data is good. If it has changed, then store the new value and go back to step 2. TL/F/11011 – 6 FIGURE A-1.
