Electronic Dice circuit

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The IC1 is a 555 timer IC is connected for, Astable operation the clock pulses are fed to the IC2 via the 10K resistor. The IC2 is a 10 stage counter, output 6 (pin 5) is connected to RESET (pin 15), thus giving us a 6 stage counter, outputs 0 to 5. The 6 of the LEDs are connected as 3 pairs, thus requiring 4 different signals, these signals come

from the 4 transistors, which in turn are connected to the necessary outputs of the IC2. Where a transistor is operated from more than one output, diodes are used to avoid a short circuit situation between outputs. Pin 13 of the IC2 (INHIBIT) is connected to +ve via a 100K resistor to stop the counter from advancing, however pressing the S1 [START] button will connect pin 13 to 0V line and allow the counter to advance, hence, throwing the dice. The circuit supply can use a 9V battery or external pack 9 until 12V. The D7 until D15 LED ’s connected as Fig. 2 to make a dice.
