Very Simple Clock

Reworking a Design from 1971

Very Simple Clock
Electronics moves with the times. Over the years the options available change and there are ever different solutions to realising a certain concept. It is often the case that the amount of integration is increased as much as is possible. A good example is this Very Simple Clock. This clock is based on the Hebinck-clock that was published in the May and June 1971 issues of Elektor Netherlands (the design was never published in the English-language edition, which first appeared in 1975).

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
