Boxe Timer is a countdown timer based on PIC 16F628A.
Through its 7-segments led display it alternates 2 different countdowns.
In the first mode, called "pause countdown", the display blinks while numbers are shown.
The second mode is named "working countdown" and shows numbers in a traditional way.
When the count reach 0, the devices emits a sound using the internal piezo.
The time is selected using an external switch.
Version 0.4B use PIC internal EEPROM to store working modes.
It cames with 10 fixed program, and 5 user program, which can be edited by user.
This project comes with two one layer PCB board, i've used tone transfer method to built both:
- one board is an "all in one" pcb
- one board is split in LED display board, and logic board
The timer contains 10 default programs (program 1 to 10) and 5 user programs (program 11 to 15). The Manual mode allow the execution of a program without saving it.
This timer repeatedly execute the pause interval A for a number of repetitions AF, and then the work interval B for a number of repetitions BF.
- P ( program ) : identify the selected program
- A ( pause interval ) : the display will show the countdown timer for the pause interval, the display will blink
- B ( work interval ) : the display will show the countdown timer for the work interval
- AF ( number or repetitions for A ) : number or repetitions for time A, for each round
- BF ( number or repetitions for B ) : number or repetitions for time B, for each round
- F ( total number of repetitions / rounds ) : repetitions for A*AF + B*BF, blink the actual number of round when the round ends, if differs from 1
