Help needed in designing an intervalometer

by Joshua_S » Tue Apr 10, 2018 11:11 am

Hi folk,

I'm designing an intervalometer with ATMega328 and DS3231 RTC IC.
( DS3231 see: http://www.kynix.com/Detail/99971/DS3231.html).
I want to make my own circuit board for sake of simplicity. For prototyping i am using Arduino Pro Mini.
I build RTC module based on this document provided by adafruit.
Only difference is i use CR2032 battery.

To build up the circuit first i solder RTC on SMD to DIP converter board. I check all pins to against short-cuts. Then connect to Arduino and battery. Load example sketch provided by Adafruit's RTClib. Works fine. Then disconnecting Arduino from power. Leting it work for couple hours. Then things gets interesting. RTC either not responding, or responds but starts from 0 each time i power off arduino despite of its connected to battery. Also battery voltage is downs to 2V.

After some trials with multimeter, i find out that when i try to test shout cut with multimeter Vin-GND gives 1 but Vbat-GND gives 300 to 500 but buzzer not activates. For fresh RTC, both results are 1.

For now i tried 4 RTC and 6 battery from different sources. Results are same. What might be cousing this problem?

uff you need a help, i like do develop a motherboard but is very hard...

I study electronic and my impression's its because a your module.
I like the security. I like Android and other SO same Ubuntu or Linux.
