Last summer vacation, I had an opportunity to be in
dad's hobby workshop and decided to have a look at my pending projects. (I
am no longer a science student but now in School
of Fashion Technology for my BS Degree) I realized that I had a
lot of parts in boxes that I ordered and must be utilized!! I decided
to complete one more project as all that was to be done was to
design a board.
OLD Way New
PIC Clock project detailed here is based on
PIC16F1307 and associated DS1307 chip.
Project is designed as a School Project where
everything that is used is on front side of the board. There are no
cases made or will be made. You may make suitable case of your own
choice, something like a photo frame, perhaps.
Clock is designed on a double sided PTH Board and works on
12V supplied by an external 12V DC adaptor. (Not part of Kit) RTC (Real Time Clock chip
DS1307) has a small button cell to keep running when DC12V supply is interrupted.
2X16 LCD with backlight is used. A larger 2x16
LCD called "Jumbo" may be used with small change in
connections and using a ribbon cable.
At moment only project PCB is available. If time
permits, I will make few kits available.
