    I'm looking for a RTC that is capable to transmit the data to a simple 4-digits LED Display Module (common Anode/Cathode).

    Obiously RTCs which support a serial communication (e.g. I2C, SPI, UART) aren't good because that I need to translate them using a micro-controller.

    There are so many different chips and it is difficult finding something that fits my requirements.
    Do you know a commonly used chip?

    Any advice is welcome..

    So what you actually want is an LED clock?

    Yes, but not as a complete module.
    I want freedom to choose the LEDs.

    Thanks !
    That's close to what I need. Though the models of the RTC and LED-digits modules aren't written.

    Perhaps there's an RTC that its pinout includes the current time in BCD format?
    I suppose it would be the best chip for the task.

    The RTC in that clock kit is within the uC AT89C2051.
