News

06-29-2010
New software release 1.00.11.

Fixed bug in pendulum Mode 0 which would only light some of the quarter hour lights on after a razzle. The lights are now forced on.

06-09-2010
New software release 1.00.10.

Modified the code to write the clock's sense of the time out to the rtc before each razzle (auto or otherwise). This compensates for the inaccuracy of the crystal on the RTC board.

05-29-2010
New software release 1.00.09.

Restricted the minimum time that sync time can be set to 60 seconds. Times less than that can make it hard to comunicate with the clock.

02-25-2010
New software release 1.00.08.

Modified to detect and use the RTC on power up if it's present.

Modified to detect AC or DC power and generate 60hz if DC power is detected. (This only works for 14.7456MHZ crystals).

Reduced the help messages as well as other strings to make room for the above changes.

01-17-2010
New software release 1.00.07.

Modified to have pendulum mode 0 set the lamps always on.

Modified to have the sync time to always occure at the top of the interval (an interval of 3600 will be the top of the hour)

11-02-2009
New software release 1.00.06. Modified code to calculate the current time directly from the zero crossings without converting to milliseconds first to eliminate the rounding errors that were occurring.
10-24-2009
New software release 1.00.05. The code was modified to allow advancing the minutes and hours by clicking the buttons as well as just holding them down.

Solderless Bread Board This is a 630 + 200 terminal solderless bread to help in assembling the clock. I recommend this bread board to simplify sorting the neon bulbs to work in a ring before soldering them into the board. I myself use one even after building many of the clocks. Price: $15.00
RTC Daughter board This daughter board is from www.sparkfun.com. It will work with firmware versions at or above 1.00.08 (soon to be released). It will hold the time through power outages. Just like the CPU, it does not play an active roll in the time keeping of the clock except when power is applied or a reset occurs. Price: $25.00
