Named ‘El Relojito’ (relojo = watch in spanish), this seemingly simple design is a great project for anyone ready to move past the rank of ‘amateur’. 60 LEDs surround the 7-segment leds telling you the time. A PIC micro controls all the action. The write-up is in spanish, but the schematic/pictures should be enough to guide you. [via]

This is a digital clock project based on an ATtiny26 microcontroller, displaying time on four seven segment LEDs. The seven segment LEDs glow bright white and are multiplexed through PORTB pins, whereas the segments are driven by PORTA pins. The time is normally shown in hh.mm format but it can be switched to display mm.ss too. The time setting can be done with two push button switches. [via]

This is an Arduino powered 24-hour digital clock that uses the RTC chip DS1307 for timekeeping. DS1307 has a small battery backup so that it keeps the correct time even the rest of the circuit is not powered. The time is displayed on 5×7 LED dot matrix. [via]

Simon Inns created a secure USB time stamp device: [via]
This project implements a USB device which provides a real-time clock for the purpose of time-stamping events in an non-networked embedded computer environment. For embedded applications where a periodic time-stamp is required (such as entry-system logs, configuration audit logs, etc.) it is necessary to have a fairly accurate real-time clock (better than that typically provided by a PC’s motherboard) to generate time-stamps in logging and audit trails. Furthermore, it is preferable to have a method of confirming that the log/audit files have not been tampered with in anyway. The secure USB time-stamp device solves many of these issues in a very small form factor using minimal components .

Symmetricom has rolled out what it bills as the world’s smallest and lowest-power atomic oscillator. The newest member of Symmetricom’s QUANTUM™ family of atomic oscillators, the SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC), provides the accuracy and stability of atomic clock technology with dramatically reduced size, weight and power. It is ideal for is ideal for portable applications requiring precise synchronisation and timekeeping, especially in environments where GPS reception is poor or impossible. [via]

A circuit made for displaying the time using 7 segment display (for decimal display) and LEDs (for binary display). I used an Atmega16 microcontroller and shift registers in the schematic. For more details contact me.

Oscar Gonzalez from BricoGeek has build a nice clock using 7 segment displays and LED matrix. The clock uses and Arduino MEGA with a Real time clock module and an SHT15 board from SFE. Six digits 10 cm tall shows the current hour and date. 4 LED display matrix are used to show temperature, humidity and an RSS feed from the Internet. [via]
