Electronic Dice

This fun kit also acts as a great introduction to digital logic and how to connect logic gates directly to analogue circuits. A very simple to build kit to introduce you to these fascinating concepts.

A special random number generator is the electronic dice circuit. Seven LEDs can be arrnaged off the board via wires into a standard dice pattern.

The circuit was designed with the idea of being able to fit the board into a small tin with the LEDs inserted into seven small holes drilled into the tin lid. Then with a push activated button also fitted to the tin we can "throw" the dice.

The LEDs indicated on the board can also be fitted to the board if required. But it will look far better to use soldered hook up wire for these instead with leads connected to the end to allow the LEDs to fit any location on the tin that you decide to drill the holes.

All kits that you buy will all come with two detailed videos, one will describe the theory the second video will show how to drill and adapt the tin so your board fits within it. (both videos displayed on this page below)


Kit parts are as follows:
  • 1 of PCB board
  • 7 of 270 Ohm Resistors (R1-R7)
  • 3 of 1K Ohm Resistors (R8-R10)
  • 1 of 100nf (0.01uf) Capacitor (C1)
  • 1 of 3nf Capacitor (C2)
  • 1 of NC Push Button
  • 7 of LED
  • 1 of IC1 555 timer
  • 1 of IC2 7492 Decade/Devide By 6 counter
  • 1 of IC3 7404 Inverter Gates IC
  • 1 of IC4 7410 NAND Gates IC
  • 1 of Battery clip
  • The tin (95mm x 60mm x 21mm)
  • Assembly instructions
(25 components)

The theory behind the circuit

The theory video is not required to get your circuit running. Those who are not interested in how the circuit works can just use the assembly instructions and refer to the second tin installation video for tips and an example on how to install the circuit within a typical enclosure. The theory is just an extra bonus video for those who like to know how their kits work.

All kits that you buy will all come with a tin as an enclosure. (96mm x 60mm x 21mm) This short video goes through some suggestions on how to install your finished circuit into a typical enclosure. Often the tins used in the installation videos is a smaller tin for demonstration purposes. But you will always receive the larger tin version.
