SP7021:
The system is powered off. But 8051 still has power.
The 8051 has a register to control the power-on and power-off of the system.
8051 has RTC register. When the time is up, 8051 powers on the system.
The 8051 can detect GPIO0~7 pins, and GPIO pin high/low can be used as a power-on judgment mechanism for the system.
