Power and Connections

Check that your power and data connections are correct and that the power VOUT switch is in the ON position on the gator:bit (v2).


The RTC only reports the time down to 1 second intervals and cannot return fractions of a second. It will report the lower value between seconds until the next second is hit (e.g. at 15.6 seconds past the minute is will report 15 seconds until the the 16th second is reached).
