Analog Clock Motor Driver

Even in a digital world, classic analog clocks have a timeless style that is here to stay.  We can use a dual-rail GreenPAK™ CMIC to implement all the active electronic functions needed in an analog clock, including motor driver and crystal oscillator. GreenPAKs are low-cost, tiny devices that fit right in with smart watches. As an easy-to-build demonstration, I obtained a cheap wall clock, removed the existing board, and replaced all the active electronics with one GreenPAK™ device.
