headroom for RTC?
Does the case have enough headroom to also accommodate a stacked RTC?

  • It might be worth contacting Uptronics and confirming, however I think with a combination of the RTC crystal and the timestamps from GPS data, this can be used to set the clock of the Raspberry Pi. It just requires you to have a GPS lock.

    Just a quick Google and here are some results:

  • From my reading of the spec sheet at https://store.uputronics.com/files/MAX-8DataSheet.pdf, the RTC crystal is not the same as a full RTC clock. The crystal will provide a *frequency* reference, but absolute wallclock time would not be preserved across reboots of the Pi. How can we discover a definitive answer to this question?

  • I'm afraid not. However there shouldn't be a need to stack an RTC due to the fact the GPS board that this holds has an RTC built into it - https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/communication-1068/gps-1071/raspberry-pi-gps-hat
