@@cubeberg We can use anything that's freely available in the labs so yes cardboard, paper etc. we just cant order any components in as they probably wouldn't arrive in time for us to test and use them. We are expected to implement our design on veroboard and we have breadboards and other things to test any designs we make. @@enl thanks for explaining the 4017 and as for the ideas, I think we're going to try to make pedestrian crossing of sorts with the LEDs, the display and the buzzer.
I have been tasked with making a project in 10 days using an MSP430 and a bag of stuff to use, I'm looking for some help with project ideas. We are not allowed to order any other components but capacitors, resistors etc. are freely available. The board we are using is a msp-exp430FR4133 and our bag of components contains: 2x Red LEDs 2x Green LEDs 1x Yellow LED 8x BC548 Transistors 1x TTC502 Thermistor 1x Bourns 3296 Potentiometer 1x Dual digit 7-segment display 1x Silonex NORP LDR 1x Push Switch 1x LM741CN op amp 1x CD4017BE chip(not sure what this is) 1x KS1P relay 1x RF-300EA-1D390 Motor 1x Small Buzzer
