Arduino enthusiasts or those looking to build a DIY binary clock may be interested in a new shield created by developer Marcin Saj. The Arduino binary clock shield has been made available via the Crowd Supply website with preorders starting from $33 and worldwide shipping available from $6, and commencing during August 2019. Watch the overview video below to learn more about its features real-time clock and temperature sensor.
“A big part of being a maker is learning new technologies that you can incorporate into your projects. The Binary Clock Shield is designed for makers, students, and even teachers. It can be specially-tailored for educational application to enable quick and easy “learning while building” projects.”
Specifications of the binary clock shield include :
– Operating voltage: 5 V via Arduino (USB or 7-12 VDC jack)
– Dimensions: 68.6 x 53.4 mm
– Weight: 19 g
– Same form factor as Arduino
– Compatible with Arduino UNO
– Three Buttons
– RTC – Real Time Clock
Extremely accurate RTC on board
Temperature sensor inside
Easy to use with the Arduino “DS3232RTC.h” library
RTC model – DS3231
– Piezo Buzzer
Can play tones and music
The buzzer is connected to the Arduino pwm pin “11”
Easy to use with the Arduino “pitches.h” tone library
Piezo model – KLJ-1230
