Modules are useful boards that handle commonly used circuits that can be a pain to design from scratch. In this kit you will build the 4-Bit Counter Module which is a 4-bit counter based around the 4516 and has a decimal display as well as a 4-Way DIP switch for presetting the on board counter. The module has all inputs and outputs from the 4516 connected to pads which can be soldered to and then connected to other projects.

The 4-Bit Counter Module is an ideal kit for those who want to include a simple 0-9 counter display to their project. The PCB has all control signals connected to pads including counting up / down, input, output, and clock which gives the user full capabilities of the 4516. Examples of projects that can benefit from this module would include clocks, people counters, signal counting, and simple computers. The on-board DIP switch provides the ability to have a preset load value which is loaded upon a positive edge on the load input. This kit is also ideal for use in the classroom as it can be built in under an hour, uses a high quality PCB, is entertaining, and can be used in conjunction with a breadboard for testing. If an educational project is required then the Reaction Tester is a kit that includes two 7 segment displays which can time a users reaction.
