Re: NXP MCUX RTC implementation

Michael Hope

Hi Franco.  I don't know of any technical limitation, but from what I've seen so far the Zephyr community takes a broad but shallow approach - for example, I've been adding support for the SAMD21 used in the Arduino Zero so I've focused on the SPI, USB, Flash, and GPIO drivers that I need and skipped others like PWM or ADC.

we at blik are working with Zephyr on one of our hardware units, and would like to use a lowpower mechanism along with an RTC wakeup.

Unfortunately RTC implementations are sparse, with only one implementation present. Is there a technical limitation or reason for this?
As far as I understand, SoC lowpower implementations are omitted in Zephyr, because they are usually usecase specific. I can't imagine the same for RTC.

Furthermore, we are looking for someone to develop the RTC driver and ultimately upstream it, as a small paid project. Please feel free to message me, if you're interested.

Kind regards,
