2.1-5 CT2, CT1, and CT0
Periodic Interrupt Selection Bits
Interrupt Cycle and Fall Timing
Fixed at low (“L”)
2Hz (Duty cycle of 50%)
1Hz (Duty cycle of 50%)
Once per 1 second (Synchronized with second counter increment)
Once per minute (at 00 seconds of every minute)
Once per hour (at 00 minutes and 00 seconds of every hour)
Once per month (at 00 hours, 00 minutes, and 00 seconds of first day of every month)
1) Pulse Mode: 2-Hz and 1-Hz clock pulses are output in synchronization with the increment of the second counter
as illustrated in the timing chart on the next page.
2) Level Mode: periodic interrupt signals are output with selectable interrupt cycle settings of 1 second, 1 minute,
1 hour, and 1 month. The increment of the second counter is synchronized with the falling edge of
periodic interrupt signals. For example, periodic interrupt signals with an interrupt cycle setting
of 1 second are output in synchronization with the increment of the second counter as illustrated
in the timing chart on the next page.
3) When the oscillation adjustment circuit is used, the interrupt cycle will fluctuate once per 20 seconds as follows:
Pulse Mode: the “L” period of output pulses will increment or decrement by a maximum of ±3.784ms.
For example, 1-Hz clock pulses will have a duty cycle of 50 ±0.3784%.
Level Mode: a periodic interrupt cycle of 1 second will increment or decrement by a maximum of ±3.784ms.
