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.

Question:

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.

    There 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. There is a link to the resource page in the product description.
