    Picaxe programmer PCB for CH340 "Gold" USB Serial Adapter

    I did something similar 2 year ago using 2 2N2222 and 4 resistors to invert the signals (the 8 pins socket allows on board programming of complete m2 serie and microswitch for hard reset for onboard programming) and lately, a full programmer for 8m,14m,18X 20m amd 20X using the same signal...

    Picaxe Timing Accuracy

    $02 is the hours register you read it; Hi2cin $2 ,B0 $04 is the day register you read it; Hi2cin $4 ,B1 $05 is the month register you read it; Hi2cin $5 ,B2 $06 is the year register you read it; Hi2cin $6 ,B3 Now that you have these 4 values, write them in the EEPROM locations EI: write 0,b0...

    You simply can read the hours register and compare its value with your target values. Hi2csetup I2cmaster, %11010000, I2cfast_32, I2cbyte ' Set the I2C to 400kbps Hi2cin $2 ,B0 'read the hours into b0 b0=b0/16*$FA+b0 'conversion BCD to binary of the hours

    I have use in the past on few occasions the DS3232 RTC with his battery backup, they are accurate to a few second a year (even on the battery backup)
