Can someone please help me in configuring the RTC timer on K60 to be able to generate an interrupt after 1 sec.The following is the code snippet that i used to configure the RTC.However,on calling "enable_irq(66)" instruction,the control is switched to ISR routine immediately without even executing further instructions that are supposed to get executed.Even on using this instruction "enable_irq(66)" at the end of the function at the end of the function "void rsi_mcu_rtc_init(uint32 time_in_seconds)",the control switches to ISR immediately. which i measure it to about 500ms.


Here i am measuring time on an oscilloscope by toggling a GPIO pin using "enable_test_gpio()" and "disable_test_gpio()" which wont show an expected time of 1sec.


So,what i expect is that only after enabling the counter should the timer start ticking and after 1 sec only the control should switch to the ISR routine.


Appreciate your help in helping me solve this issue.




uint8 rsi_rtc_interrupt_flag = 0;

void rsi_mcu_rtc_init(uint32 time_in_seconds)
    int i;
    /*enable the clock to SRTC module register space*/
    /*Only VBAT_POR has an effect on the SRTC, RESET to the part does not, so you must manually reset the SRTC to make sure everything is in a known state*/
    /*clear the software reset bit*/
    RTC_CR  &= ~RTC_CR_SWR_MASK;  

     /*Enable the interrupt*/

    /*Enable the oscillator*/
    /*Wait to all the 32 kHz to stabilize, refer to the crystal startup time in the crystal datasheet*/
    /*Set time compensation parameters*/
    //RTC_TCR = RTC_TCR_CIR(0) | RTC_TCR_TCR(0);
    /*Configure the timer seconds and alarm registers*/
    RTC_TSR = time_in_seconds;
    //RTC_TPR = 0x8008;
    RTC_TAR = 0x00;
    enable_test_gpio();  // Drive the  GPIO pin  HIGH (to measure time)

    /*Enable the counter*/
    while(rsi_rtc_interrupt_flag == 0);


    disable_test_gpio();  // Drive the GPIO pin LOW (to measure time)


void rsi_rtctimer_ISR(void)
    rsi_rtc_interrupt_flag = 1;
