STM32F1xx RTC Time Reset

Post by saeed144 »

Hi
I'm using STM32RTC lib to get time, but when the board reset time reset too, I know I should work with RTC backup register, but how on Arduino IDE?

Have you changed clock source to external ??

Code: Select all

setClockSource(STM32RTC::LSE_CLOCK)

  This sketch shows how to configure the RTC and to display
  the date and time periodically

  This example code is in the public domain.

*/

#include <STM32RTC.h>

/* Get the rtc object */
STM32RTC& rtc = STM32RTC::getInstance();

/* Change these values to set the current initial time */
const byte seconds = 20;
const byte minutes = 14;
const byte hours = 19;

/* Change these values to set the current initial date */
/* Monday 15th June 2015 */
const byte weekDay = 1;
const byte day = 15;
const byte month = 6;
const byte year = 15;

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  delay(1000);
  // Select RTC clock source: LSI_CLOCK, LSE_CLOCK or HSE_CLOCK.
  // By default the LSI is selected as source.
  Serial.print("RTC Test");
  rtc.setClockSource(STM32RTC::LSE_CLOCK);
  Serial.print("Clcok Set");
  rtc.begin(); // initialize RTC 24H format

  // Set the time
  rtc.setHours(hours);
  rtc.setMinutes(minutes);
  rtc.setSeconds(seconds);

  // Set the date
  rtc.setWeekDay(weekDay);
  rtc.setDay(day);
  rtc.setMonth(month);
  rtc.setYear(year);

  // you can use also
  //rtc.setTime(hours, minutes, seconds);
  //rtc.setDate(weekDay, day, month, year);
}

void loop()
{
  // Print date...
  Serial.printf("%02d/%02d/%02d ", rtc.getDay(), rtc.getMonth(), rtc.getYear());

  // ...and time
  Serial.printf("%02d:%02d:%02d.%03d\n", rtc.getHours(), rtc.getMinutes(), rtc.getSeconds(), rtc.getSubSeconds());

  delay(1000);
}
Output is: RTC Test
not more

Which board you used ? Is there an LSE ?

I'm using STM32F103C8T6 with my own designed PCB, using 8MHz for main core and 32.768Khz for RTC and 3v 2032 battery.
Yes LSE is enabled, I attached the code above.

  rtc.setMinutes(minutes);
  rtc.setSeconds(seconds);

This part resets your time with every boot.
You need to add a condition:

Code: Select all


 if (!rtc.isTimeSet()) {
    // Set the time
    rtc.setHours(hours);
    rtc.setMinutes(minutes);
    rtc.setSeconds(seconds);
  }

Then there might be something wrong with your board design or variant setup.
It works without any problems with F103 blue pill.
