The PCA2002 is a CMOS integrated circuit for battery operated wrist watches with a 32 kHz quartz crystal as the timing element and a bipolar stepping motor. The quartz crystal oscillator and the frequency divider are optimized for minimum current consumption. A timing accuracy of 1 ppm is achieved with a programmable, digital frequency adjustment.
The output period and the output pulse width can be programmed. It can be selected between a full output pulse or a chopped output pulse with a duty cycle of 75 %. In addition, a stretching pulse can be added to the primary driving pulse.
A pad RESET is provided (used for stopping the motor) for accurate time setting and for accelerated testing of the watch.
