RTC on Mx51 BBG randomly resets to 1-1-1970 - is it the PMIC?  Is there a Fix or Work-around?

On our variant of the i.Mx51 BBG and on the EVK the date & time (RTC) is randomly reset back to 1-1-1970.  Sometimes only the time is reset/changed - other times the time & date are reset.  This is obviously a critical issue when interacting with the outside world.  The EVK and our design uses the MC13892 PMIC.


I understand there may be irrecoverable PMIC RTC issues that result in RTC reset.  If this is true or not, Please confirm.  And provide any Work-arounds which may be employed.


Thank all,



PS I have seen some MX53 and WinCE tweaks - but so far none applicable to this platform.
