Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

   Tech-Note: Add Real Time Clock to the TRS-80 Color Computer 
              CoCo 1/2/3.  This tech-note also includes a circuit
              to control the X10 CM17A (Firecracker) transmitter.
   Sheets 1 thru 6 show schematics for alternate interface 
   circuitry to the DS1302 Real Time Clock.  A section of the 
   circuitry implements control of the CM17A transmitter.
   Addresses FD00-FDFF are used for these functions.
   A. Principle of operation for the DS1302.  Address lines A2-A5
      are used for the DS1302 several interface lines.
   1. A3 is used for the CE (chip enable) pin.  Assembly code 
      TST  FD08 will set CE to high level.  TST FD00  will set CE
      to a low level.
   2. A2 controls the CLK (clock) pin.  Code TST  FD04 will set 
      CLK high and TST  FD00 will set it low.
   3. To enable data bits to the I/O (input/output) pin A4 is used.
      Code TST  FD10 enables the data path to the DS1302.  Code
      TST  FD00 will disable the path.
   4. To send data bits (0/1) to the DS1302 (commands and 
      data), A5 is used in conjunction with A4 of item 3 and A3 of 
      item 2.  To send a bit=1 (A5), CE line must be high, I/O line
      must be high then CLK line must go high.
      A code sequence like:
          TST  FD08
          TST  FD38 or FD28 for bit=0
          TST  FD3C or FD2C for bit=0
      will send a data bit (A5)to the DS1302.
   5. To read data bits from the DS1302, after a command is sent
      requesting the value of hour, minute, second, etc.  The data
      path to the DS1302 must be disabled during reading.  A data
      bit is clocked from the DS1302 by setting the CLK pin low.
      A code sequence like:
          TST  FD08
          LDA  FD08
          TST  FD0C 
      will transfer a data bit from the DS1302.
   6. Data is sent and received (to/from) the DS1302 low order 
      bit (LSB) first.
REV. 1/2013  
   B. Principle of operation for the X10 CM17A.  Address lines 
      A0 & A1 are used for the CM17A two interface lines. Note,
      the IC 1488 interface to the CM17a requires +/-12V. Wires
      must be added internally to bring these voltages to the
      cartridge 40 pin connector (pins 1 & 2).
   7. When the CM17A is in standby both interface line must be at
      low level.  Code TST  FD00 will set both lines at zero.
   8. To cause the CM17A to transmit a bit=0, A1 is high while A0 
      is low.  Code TST  FD02 will set bit=0 state.  Likewise to 
      transmit bit=1, code TST  FD01 which sets A1 low and A0 high.
   9. The CM17A requires the bit state held for 0.25 milliseconds
      followed by standby state held for 0.25 milliseconds, this
      results a 0.5 millisecond pulse for each bit transmitted.
   10. The code sequence to transmit a bit=0:
            TST   FD02
            CALL  HLFDLY    .25 ms delay
            TST   FD00 
     CALL  HLFDLY    .25 ms delay
   11. The code sequence to transmit a bit=1:
            TST   FD01
            CALL  HLFDLY    .25 ms delay
            TST   FD00 
     CALL  HLFDLY    .25 ms delay
   12. A X10 control command consists of 40 bits, a 16 bit header
       a 16 bit command/unit and a 8 bit trailer. 
   C. Circuit components are available which include the IC's and
      DS1302 with the crystal (32.768Kz).  Misc parts such as
      wires, sockets, resistor, capacitors, etc are not included.
   D. Software is available which includes functions for both the 
      Real Time Clock and the CM17A X10 transmitter.  Includes
      both executable code and source code on cassette tape.  A
      hard copy of the Machine Language (ML) code is included.
   E. Contact the author by e-mailing john.e.hieber at juno.com 
      for availability and prices.
   F. Sheet 5 & 6 shows the schematic using programmable peripheral
      interface adapter IC's.  The Z80 PIO and the MC6821.
