You will not find something outstanding here, it's just a clock. I had these 3 inches LCD 7-segments character around and a need of a visible clock.The LCD panels are Lumex LCD-S101D30TR. They are connected on static way, not multiplexed, 7 segments plus a dot (square).
I'm familiar with 8-bit PIC micro controller, and I figured out there is micros with integrated LCD driver. Plus, some have RTC clock modules. I need to drive 6x 8 segments, the PIC18F87K90 - even if it is by far memory over-sized - seems perfect. I could event drive the 6 characters on a static way.
I soldered the LCD panels to prototyping board, which are fixe to long rods.
Everything working on batteries, around 4-5 months on 3 rechargable AA.
