Piggymiddle Binary_Timery boxed up

November 17th, 2013

After using some of these boards as an extension activity (where one designed a case that exposed the circuit board) I put together my own version. Nothing special but it does allow you to use the board AS-IS so very little extra wiring needed – just two wires to the switch. The potentiometer mounts the PCB with a bit of glue to stabilize things at the LED end. The motherboard is permanently joined to the daughter (direct on header pins) so its very compact. Power is from a 3 or 4 flat AA pack that sits underneath. How it works is shown in a video found on the Piggyaxe Advanced Electronic files page  http://www.g4xat.co.uk/piggyaxe-what-is-it/piggyaxe-advanced-files/
