Hi everybody,

Thanks for all the answers I got over experience with the MPC852T.
One other thing I was investigating is the RTC.
What RTC solutionts are known for easy interfacing with MPC8xx processors,
that work under linux ? What's the standard ?
There are a number of PC-compatible RTC chips out there, but I don't seem to
like them much, because they're generally quite expensive, have a lot of
functionality which might be nice, but is not really needed in my case.
Any experience with smaller 1-bit (or SPI) RTC's under linux ? I'm looking
basically for a Battery-backuped time-keeping counter.
