how to set many alarms in RTC program ? psoc 4 device
1.first alarm [date and time ]
2.second alarm [date and time ]
3.third alarm [date and time ]
If first alarm is activate[date and time ] then turn on LED for 30 second
If second alarm is activate [date and time ] then turn on LED for 30 second
If third alarm is activate [date and time ] then turn on LED for 30 second
Basically set RTC alarm up with first alarm.
If that becomes true, alarms, then set a flag1, turn on led1, and set RTC for second alarm.
If second alarm becomes true, alarms, then set a flag2, turn on led2, and set RTC for third alarm.
If third alarm becomes true, alarms, then set a flag3, turn on led3.
The APIs to set alarm are in datasheet.
APIs to control GPIO for leds -

Hello Mr. Dana
if you look zip file there is only one LED Pin. I want to set alarm for one LED
1. get current time and date from RTC
2. print current time and date on LCD [23:59:55 ---- 03/22/2016 ]
3. activate alarm date time [ 10:02:15---- 04/22/2016 ]
4. If alarm is activate turn on LED for 30 second
5 activate alarm date time [ 10:02:15---- 05/22/2016 ]
6. If alarm is activate turn on LED for 30 second
7. activate alarm date time [ 10:02:15---- 06/22/2016 ]
8. If alarm is activate turn on LED for 30 second
I don't understand how to set alarms. I saw RTC datasheet there are alarm mask registers ,there is no flag, please look my project and tell me what I have to do ?
ok I am trying to write example code
/* Examples */
#define flag_1 (0)
#define flag_2 (0)
#define flag_3 (0)
#define flag_1 (1)
#define flag_2 (1)
#define flag_3 (1)
flag = 1; /* set flag' */
flag = 0; /* clear flag */
I have asked for an example program, should have something soon.
If you need professional product development help, coding, electrical design, see -
I am trying to fix problem step by step thats why I am taking time.first I am trying to set alarm. I searched on cypress forum , also I saw datasheet. there are only four project examples, I saw all. I don't understand how to set an RTC Alarm
I am trying myself. look example code
This function is used to set alarm date/time to RTC
#define alarm_TIME_HOUR (0x23u)
#define alarm_TIME_MIN (0x59u)
#define alarm_TIME_SEC (0x55u)
#define alarm_TIME_HR_MIN_SEC ((uint32)(TIME_HOUR << RTC_HOURS_OFFSET) | \
(uint32)(TIME_MIN << RTC_MINUTES_OFFSET) | \
#define alarm_DATE_MONTH (RTC_MARCH)
#define alarm_DATE_DAY (0x22u)
#define alarm_DATE_YEAR (0x2016u)
#define alarm_DATE_MONTH_DAY_YEAR ((uint32)(DATE_MONTH << RTC_MONTH_OFFSET) | \
(uint32)(DATE_DAY << RTC_DAY_OFFSET) | \
#define SYSTICK_EACH_10_HZ (10u)
#define SYSTICK_RELOAD (CYDEV_BCLK__SYSCLK__HZ / SYSTICK_EACH_10_HZ)
/* Interrupt prototype */
/* Place your initialization/startup code here (e.g. MyInst_Start()) */
From tech support -
5) "RTC_SetDateAndTime" is not clearly explained in the component datasheet. But it is provided in the component generated code as copied below:
* inputTime: The time value in the HH:MM:SS format.
* "HH"- The 8-bit MSB that denotes the hour value.
* (0-23 for the 24-hour format and 1-12 for the 12-hour format. The MSB bit of the
* value denotes AM/PM for the 12-hour format (0-AM and 1-PM).
* "MM" - The 2nd 8-bit MSB denotes the minutes value, the valid entries -> 0-59.
* "SS" - The 3rd 8-bit MSB denotes the seconds value, the valid entries -> 0-59.
* Each byte is in the BCD format. Invalid time entries retain the
* previously set values.
* inputDate: The date value in the format selected in the customizer.
* For the MM/DD/YYYY format:
* "MM" - The 8-bit MSB denotes the month value in BCD, the valid entries -> 1-12
* "DD" - The 2nd 8-bit MSB denotes a day of the month value in BCD, the valid
* entries -> 1-31.
* "YYYY" - The 16-bit LSB denotes a year in BCD, the valid entries -> 1900-2200.
* Each byte is in the BCD format. Invalid date entries retain the
* previously set values.
So, each digit seen on a digital clock display is coded in BCD(occupying 1 nibble).
