K64F RTC crystal frequency tests

27 Oct 2015

I have measured the frequency of various MCU crystals and various RTC crystals using GPS PPS and NTP hosts, see

My K64F RTC crystal seems to be off by 250 ppm. The 32khz crystal is spec'd at 20ppm. I measured frequency error with GPS PPS, NTP, and the following program

It could be that my RTC crystal is "bad", or maybe it's a systemic problem (wrong caps or PCB routing or ???). Maybe others could try measuring RTC ppm error on their K64F's and post results....
