I got my arduino for a few days now and here comes my first adventure :
use an arduino + a lcd + a RTC to display a clock.

First lets go with the wiring :

lcd_keypad_bb

Then the code :

// ds1302 library can be found here : http://www.henningkarlsen.com/electronics
//
// DS1302: RST / CE pin - Arduino Digital 12
// I/O / DAT pin - Arduino Digital 11
// SCLK pin - Arduino Digital 10
// LCD: DB7 - Arduino Digital 7
// DB6 - Arduino Digital 6
// DB5 - Arduino Digital 5
// DB4 - Arduino Digital 4
// RS - Arduino Digital 8
// E - Arduino Digital 9
// RW to ground?


//seems it is better to NOT plug VCC when setting the clock...

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>
#include <DS1302.h>

// Init the DS1302
//DS1302(ce, data, clock);
DS1302 rtc(12,11,10);

// Init the LCD
LiquidCrystal lcd( 8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7 );

void set_time() {
rtc.setDOW(SUNDAY); // Set Day-of-Week to FRIDAY
rtc.setTime(19, 2, 0); // Set the time to 12:00:00 (24hr format)
rtc.setDate(13, 1, 2013); // Set the date to August 6th, 2010
}

void setup()
{
Serial.begin(9600);
// Set the clock to run-mode, and disable the write protection
rtc.halt(false);
rtc.writeProtect(false);
// Setup LCD to 16x2 characters
lcd.begin(16, 2);

// The following lines can be commented out to use the values already stored in the DS1302
//set_time();
}

void loop()
{
// Display time centered on the upper line
lcd.setCursor(4, 0);
lcd.print(rtc.getTimeStr());

// Display abbreviated Day-of-Week in the lower left corner
lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
lcd.print(rtc.getDOWStr(FORMAT_SHORT));

// Display date in the lower right corner
lcd.setCursor(6, 1);
lcd.print(rtc.getDateStr());

Serial.print(rtc.getTimeStr());
Serial.print(" ");
Serial.print(rtc.getDOWStr(FORMAT_SHORT));
Serial.print(" ");
Serial.println(rtc.getDateStr());

// Wait one second before repeating 🙂
delay (1000);
}

And finally a nice picture to illustrate it :

Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did 🙂

hi, if i only need the second to display on lcd,how to write the code?
I found that « lcd.print(second) » cant work.
