Hello,

I am noticing that whenever the ethernet shield is accessed, read accesses to the ds3234 RTC are corrupted (its internal data is maintained, however). The 3234 is selected by pin 49, set as output and initialized high.
I am using 3234 the library from Petre Rodan and it works perfectly well.

I also tried to digitalWrite(RTC_SEL_PIN, HIGH) just after reading the time upon power up but the issue persists.

Any idea?

Thanks for your time

I have an idea that there is a problem in the code you failed to post.

I'm not going to google "the library from Petre Rodan". You are. Post a link to the library, and any other non-standard libraries.

The most likely issue is that different devices on the SPI bus expect/require different SPI settings.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

Thank you PaulS,
Rodan's ds3234 RTC library
here is my code. The loop is reduced to the bare minimum. Using the ui command #8 one can read the RTC. If from power up I stay in ui, ill get the epoch ok. If I press go and continue to the second part of the setup then to the loop and then I break again to ui the epoch returned by #8 is zero or complete nonsense. The interesting part in the second part of the setup involves accesses to the enet / sd chips. If all are commented then #8 returns correct time. If one is uncommented #8 returns garbage. The monitor output below in italic

I can not imagine how different devices can conflict on the spi. As long as a device is deselected it is supposed to float and ignore the transactions with any other device(?)

as for library guy_lib it contains mainly passwords and a livelock to halt the machine

guy_c

realizing I could upload the code to this server :(

The solution in minimal words, pasted from http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=172871.0

// change to mode 1 for RTC
SPI.setDataMode(SPI_MODE1); 

// do your RTC SPI stuff

// then change back to mode 0 for w5100 and SD
SPI.setDataMode(SPI_MODE0)

SurferTim - You are the man!

It is bizarre though that the programmers need to be concerned with such incantations, Shouldn't this be part of the libraries/device drivers?
