This kit is a great way to learn about binary and hexadecimal while at the same time practicing your soldering skills.
The kit comes complete with everything you need to build a working 4-bit binary and hexadecimal counter.
The counter increments by one with each clock count, and this is where it gets interesting. There are three possibilities for clock input; manual via the included push-button, automatic using the included 555 timer IC or remove the 555 IC and use with the “Discrete 555 Timer Kit” also available in this store.
Clock pulses drive the 4-bit binary count which is displayed by four LEDs – the learn binary part – and converted into hexadecimal using an EEPROM that you will program using the onboard DIP switches – the learn hexadecimal part – which is output to a seven-segment LED display.
