Hi Tim

RTC can cause wakeup when an alarm is set. It looks like the DS1672
does not have this. But you are emulating the DS1672 right? You could
add a second emulated RTC which does support an alarm? DS3232?

There are plenty which use GPIOs, or UARTs. Not seen any which use
i2c. What do you think does not work at this point?
