Paddle Clock free PCB build

Posted on Wednesday, December 26th, 2012 in builds by DP


Faultykyle built one module of the Paddle Clock, a clock kit project we worked on several years ago. The board consists of two 7-segment displays driven via tw0 ‘595 serial to parallel shift registers. The control and serial signals are routed to a PCB edge connecter, which was intended to to plug into the Paddle Clock base.
