Once built this timer board can be used with your choice of 8 pin PIC processor and flowchart software. It's compatible with most educational PICs and software. The kit has a start switch as well as LED and sounder outputs. Programming is via a 3.5mm jack interface. This kit also requires a Processor which is not included in the kit.
Four tasks have been devised from a basic timer, to one where the delay is configurable by the user, it warns that time is almost up and then plays a tune upon time out.
Please see the timer tasks resource page for full details of these tasks and to download programming guides and example tasks.
- Solder this board together, choose a microcontroller and you're ready to produce a program to take control of the switch, LED and sounder.
- It's compatible with most educational PICs and software.

This kit is designed and manufactured in the UK by Kitronik.
Can you change the amplifier (or what ever it is that makes the sound) to a motor if you can can you make the motor spin only for about 15 seconds then turn, off any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hi, a motor would draw too much current and damage the PIC. You need a programmable board that can supply enough current for a motor, you might want to take a look at our Bump and Spin Kit.
Hi does the project come with a pre written program, if so where would we find it. many thanks Steve Cox
Posted byon Friday, 15 June 2012There are programming resources to accompany this kit. These consist of pre-written programs, and tasks to build up the programs in stages and offer an excellent way of getting people started doing programming.
