7400 competition entry: 40xx logic chips project

Posted on Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 in 7400 contest, contest by DP

Nakul Rao I, Nischal Rao, Nikilesh, and Sandesh VS entered a bicycle exercise meter and burger alarm into the Open 7400 Competition. Their project keeps track of your bicycle’s speed, cadence, and distance while you’re exercising. It also acts as a burglar alarm when you’re away.

This is something we had done about an year back. We felt it would be nice to enter this into the competition as we have based the entire project on 40xx logic chips.
