This board was designed last year. A couple was sent out to some beta testers, but I never heard back from them :(  So while I had a falcon to hand with a socketed RTC IC, I decided to try the module out myself. After soldering and a bodge edit, it worked just fine :)

This RTC IC is basically the same as the Falcon one, only this uses a external battery.  This way, it is easy to change the battery than having to worry about de-soldering the NVRAM in a few years time.

The module itself is a tiny fraction higher than the original NVRAM chip and should fit under the metal shielding as normal (though I have not tested that it will).

I have fixed some issues with the PCB and currently the next prototype is on order :)
