This kit allows you to illuminate the edge of a picture frame using a number of LEDs. This happens for a period of time when the button is pressed. The duration is set using a trimmer potentiometer and can be anything from a few seconds to 30 minutes. The student can choose which LEDs they would like to use. These are connected to the terminal block (along with a current limit resistor). The board can drive 200mA, which is about 10 high brightness LEDs.

This kit includes:

PCB dimensions: 58mm x 28mm.

This kit is supplied as a pack of parts and requires soldering.
