LPC1768 How To Configure RTC To Use Internal Clock Source


Title says it all, I'm struggling to figure out how to configure an LPC1768/mbed to use the the internal clock source for the RTC module. If anyone has any info or examples it would be helpfull.

Looks like the RTC is only intended to be used with an external 32kHz crystal. Of course you can try using a PWM/timer output to generate that from the main clock, but a 32kHz crystal is the better solution.

External oscillator it is thanks, would i need to configure any registers to use the RTC?

You can use standard C time functions, those will automatically configure the RTC, see: http://mbed.org/handbook/Time?action=view&revision=11592 (out of date revision, you can also check latest one, but personally I prefer the older one).

And if you require interrupts you can use: http://mbed.org/users/Sissors/code/RTC/
