This is a small project i made to practice making compact pcb layouts in eagle. It turned out that it`s also good practice at smd soldering.
First I found a circuit-diagram of a descrete dice and found out that this would be even easier to do with a PicAxe. When the design was finished (Eagle-files at the bottom), I was allowed to borrow a PCB-CNC at the local university to make a actual board out of it. And here are the result.
Due to the restrictions on two attachments per post the rest of the files will be upploaded to Dropbox and shared.
Photo of the finished PCB can be found here:
The board measures are 26x14mm and are duoble-sided.
To display all six combinations of a dice (very easily) you need seven LED`s and four output pins. The Input only-pin(C.3) is used to trigger the "throw". The schematic shows how it is connected.
