Topic: 3V-5V Switchable I2C Real Time Clock Shield proven with Arduino Due (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Using the Maxim/Dallas 1307 RTC that runs at 5V with the Arduino Due that runs at 3V. FETs are used for bidirectional level shifter per a Philips app note.  This shield has been tested on the Arduino Due (3V), Arduino Duemilanove (5V), and Arduino Leonardo (5V).

For the next version, you could get a rev3 type protosheild, you could remove the voltage selection jumper. The rev3 boards have an IOREF pin on the header specifically for this purpose.
