RTC Calibration Issue
I am using MSP430F5418 with IAR EW 5.10.
I am trying to output the RTCCLK signal from MSP's 29th pin with a frequency of 1Hz.
When I output the signal it is coming through the port.
But after I re-writing the RTC time, the signal stopped.
I tried to re-enable it, but it didn't worked.
Can anybody tell me what the reason is??
I am using the Work-around code provided by TI for setting RTC time.
My RTC configuration is:
RTCCTL01 |= RTCHOLD;
RTCCTL01 |= RTCMODE + RTCTEV_0 + RTCRDYIE + RTCTEVIE;
P2DIR |= BIT4; P2SEL |= BIT4;
RTCCTL23 = RTCCALF1 | RTCCAL0;
RTCCTL01 &= ~(RTCHOLD);
I also tried with removing dint and eint statements in the work-around code, but still it is not working.
Today I changed the time in each 10 second instead of one second.
So the signal is coming.
Can anyone tell me why??
Did you check the errata sheet for the 54xx (non-A)?
There is a problem with writing the RTC registers: It requires a precisely timed code or write access to one register will partly rewrite the others. There's a small library available from TI that uses properly aligned assembly code for writing the RTC registers.

I am using the library available from TI to modify the registers.
