Just a moment, Gonzales.  I meant this to be merely a shield for the Moteino to try out this exotic RTC, not as a replacement for the Moteino.

My apologies.  I misunderstood what you meant when you said platform.

No worries.  Maybe Felix will do one like you said.  I guess time will tell.

For now, I think a quick and dirty test board will be a good way to see how easy/hard the AB18x5 is to solder to a PCB before investing too much time into it.  I know Joe and Tom seem comfortable with soldering it, but it looks challenging to me.  If I hadn't had some recent success soldering the BQ25504, I might have waited longer before attempting the AB18x5.

BTW, is Chip Quik a good brand for T5 paste?  http://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/c/chip-quik/type5-solder-paste
Or maybe I should just ask: what is a good brand for T5 paste?

I started a new thread topic for the AB18x5 breakout board:  https://lowpowerlab.com/forum/projects/ab18x5-breakout-board/
