Kit of components containing everything you will need (excluding tools and solder) to build your own LED clock. The completed clock is based on that Atmel AT59S52 microcontroller and comes pre-flashed with an example clock application. This application provides a clock, date, temperature and alarm functionality. However if you want to use this display in you own application you can simply re-flash the microcontroller via the provided ICSP header. As well as a built in microcontroller the completed kit provides the following functionality:
4 digit seven segment display:
Allowing the ability to display the current time, date and temperature via the included in temperature sensor.
60x 3mm LED's in a novel circular arrangement mimicking a pin wheel clock. Each LED can be individually controlled via the microcontroller.
Real time clock:
DS1302 based real time clock with battery backup providing the ability for accurate time keeping.
18B20 temperature sensor allowing accurate monitoring of current temperature.
Piezo buzzer which can be used as an alarm, hourly chime, or for control feedback.
To push buttons (mode & plus) provide user control for settings or mode selection.
The completed board can be powered via a USB socket and supplied USB cable.
Additionally the microcontroller's serial port is made accessible in an arrangement allowing for easy interfacing to a Bluetooth module (see item HCARDU0004) or USB serial adaptor (HCARDU0011) providing the option of wireless monitoring and control via your application.
Please note that this kit requires soldering of 0603 sized components.
