Description: 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.
