The RTC UM in Creator can only  work with  External 32KHz Crystal

Question: Does the RTC UM in Creator can work without a External 32KHz Crystal?

 

Answer:

No, the RTC UM can only work with a External 32KHz Crystal. Without a External 32KHz Crystal RTC component will not work.

When using a RTC UM the XTAL_32KHz option should be checked  in the Clock Editor(like the below picture). Otherwise the creator will occur error “Error: mpr.M0063: The 32KHz watch crystal is not enabled and must be active for the one pulse per second interrupt to function. (App=cydsfit)” when building.
