Single Chip Dice

A circuit for electronics dice is already published in www.electronicsproject.org. Here is single chip version (of course CMOS) of the same which offers touch switch facility.

Internal oscillator of IC1 is utilized here, along with the counter. When the touch pad is touched, input of the oscillator gets the signal processed by R1 and C1 through finger tip. So, it oscillates at a frequency determined by R1 and C1. Counter counts up to “101” and reset (due to D1, D2 and R2). R4 limit the LED current to around 4 mA.

Touch pad can be replaced by push button switch if desired. Optional components R7 and Buzzer comprise a “Watch Dog”. Note that B type IC is a must for the circuit.
