This kit has seven LEDs that are used to display a random dice number every time the ‘start’ button is pressed. A PIC micro-controller, pre-programmed with special software controls the dice.
The ‘start’ switch mounts directly onto the board allowing it to be used as built or the dice can be housed into an enclosure.

James Allen's Girls School 2109 large dice kit We have had numerous difficulties with the last batch. The boards have been put together fairly well and look ok and when the boards are turned on the boards go through the checking sequence which is fine, but they do not stop checking and we are really at a loss to understand what is wrong. Could you advise please - are the chips dodgy? Would you send replacements ? Thank you.

Firstly I would like to apologise that it appears you have been having an issue with the dice kits, and this is the first report we have had about an issue so I wouldn’t suspect it was faulty chips. I have looked into this and to enable me to help you further could you confirm if the checking sequence stops once switch 1 has been pressed and released. If it doesn’t stop it is likely to be a short between IC! Pins 3 and 4. If you are still having issues after checking this then email firstname.lastname@example.org and attach a photo of the top and bottom of the circuit board.
We have had a small group making these. 1 has worked so far. 6 have one or more LEDs not working. Do you have any basic trouble shooting advice for a beginner at running an electronics club?
Posted byon Tuesday, 27 May 2014It's either the soldering or some components are backwards or in the wrong place.Usually it's the soldering. If you send a photo of the font and back of a board that isn't working to email@example.com I can take a look and give some more tailored advice.
price per part should be included
Posted byon Tuesday, 29 November 2011Hi, The program on the chip tells it to display the temperature for a few seconds, then to turn off and wait for 10 seconds and repeat. If you add a switch you are able to turn the chip off and on again which resets it to showing the temperature. If you used a combination of components that acted as a switch turning on and off quickly then the thermometer would constantly show the temperature.
we have a large number of these kits which over the last few months have been parasitised for spare components. can i purchase separate components for these kits from you? roger jones
Posted byon Tuesday, 29 November 2011Yes, we have all the parts available separately. So it would just be a case of buying a bag of each item. Most of the parts you need can be found by selecting products and then components.
