Hi Pedro,

You set the date parts (day, month, year, century) using the Date_t structure within a DateTime_t and using the call write(TIME, DateTime_t dti); To read the date and time use the "read()" cal which returns a DateTime_t. See the PCF8583_rtc.h file.

e.g. Read Date and Time

struct DateTime_t dtr;

dtr = rtc.read(TIME); i2c.write(ADDR_8574_1, &dtr.time.hours, 1); i2c.write(ADDR_8574_1, &dtr.date.year, 1);

Set Date and Time dtr.date.year = 15; rtc.write(TIME, dtr);
