PCF2127 and PCF2129

PCF2127T PCF2127T is in SO16 package

The PCF2127 and the PCF2129 are a CMOS Real Time Clock (RTC) and calendar with an integrated Temperature Compensated Crystal (Xtal) Oscillator (TCXO) and a 32.768 kHz quartz crystal optimized for very high accuracy and very low power consumption.
Both of PCF2127 and PCF2129 have a selectable I2C-bus or SPI-bus, a backup battery switch-over circuit, a programmable watchdog function, a timestamp function, and many other features.
On addition to this, the PCF2127 has 512 bytes of general-purpose static RAM.

These 4 types of RTC modules are software compatible. So this library "PCF2127" can be used all of those.
This library only supports I2C to communicate with the PCF2127/PCF2129.
