My digital clock is finished, and here’s what it looks like.
This is where most of the hardware information hides. Including what hardware used and how it was being used.
Most digital clocks these days are made from microcontrollers, but I wanted an added challenge to use it using only logic chips trying to focus on using the TTL (74xx series) integrated circuits. So, my plan was to design and build a digital clock using…
The clock is counting down and here is what we have completed and we still need to do before we can launch this balloon.
In preparation for our final launch, we built a test rocket with prototypes on-board. This allowed us to test everything and find out what will work, what won’t, what should have worked and what we need to change and fix before the final deadline.
YICTE – Young ICT Explorers. YICTE is a competition run all around Australia getting students who love ICT and anything in general apply their knowledge and abilities to solve real world issues.
We decided to make this project extra special by design almost everything from scratch, this includes the circuit board.
We wanted to make our balloon payload steerable. this was going to be achieved with a rudder, and here are some details on how we were going to achieve it.
Building a circuit take quite a bit of time and effort. A schematic has to be constructed – which is a diagram showing the links between all of the electronics. A prototype should be built and tested, the schematic refined and then finally the PCB…
Stages There are 3 stages to our project: Design and Creation Launch Results Creation (July-September) The creation stage consists of the team designing and building each of their parts of the project, as well as collaboration and integration to complete the weather balloon. Each team member…
