Hi, Wanted to use the Fubarino SD for an RTC. I see the place for the 32K crystal, but schematic says I need to also add capacitors? Is that correct? Any special library to use the RTC function?

Yes, you need capacitors. There's two 0603 pads for them next to the crystal. The value you need depends on your crystal.

The RTCC library is here:
