I am using ATSAMA5D36 xpained board, I tried to mount RTC battery (CR1220) coin cell in the VBAT pin of J14 header

But the battery voltage is draining from 3V to 1V with in a day 

What will be the reason, can anybody help me to solve this,

Please find the attachment,

As my understanding, The battery voltage drop due to the R185, But

I removed the R185 (1.5K) resistor also even though its doping.

It's a whole lot easier if you insert the picture in the post, where we can see it - like this:

 

For instructions on how to do that, see Tip #1 in my signature, below:

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

The User Guide says this is intended for a supercap - not a battery.

 

If it's expecting a supercap, then it will be expecting to charge it - I don't think that's going to go well with a battery ... ?
