This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale. This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious.
Description: Replacement: While we’re no longer carrying this as a pre-built item, we will continue to sell the Simon PTH soldering kit as well as the SMD soldering kit. This page is for reference only.
Looking for an application for the button pads, we ultimately settled on re-creating this classic. It blinks. It makes a lot of noise. And it’s guaranteed to suck you away from doing any real work.
This is a good demo board for our button pads, DC to DC step up, LEDs, battery holders, buzzer, pseudo-random number generator for game sequence, etc. The firmware is available below as well as schematics to see how we did it. Buy the board for a quick toy or re-write the code to create mega-Simon. Please note the board comes fully assembled as shown, tested, and includes an all important Sound On/Off switch. Battery not included - a single AA will power Simon for 15-20 hours. See our tutorials for more information about programming the ATmega8.
Note: We’ve updated the processor to an ATmega328, and loaded it with the Arduino Pro Mini bootloader! Not much has changed functionally; but, using an FTDI Basic Breakout Board, you can now load your own program via the Arduino IDE.
