7400 competition entry: Flickering Jack-o’-lantern

Posted on Friday, October 21st, 2011 in 7400 contest by DP

Jonathan entered a Flickering Jack-o’-lantern for the Open 7400 Logic Competition. He recorded a video of his project, which is available below.

I used a 74HC14 to create four different square waves of different non-harmonic frequencies that were mixed together to flicker a red and blue LED.
