I' intending to make a dice roller for my GCSE coursework, based on the d20 system.

I have an application which does pretty much the same thing, though it would need to be simplified for the real thing.

Here's the problem. I can program a PIC chip, get components etc. but I have no idea what I'll need on the circuit in order to make this thing work. Sad Rather a simple process: a choice of inputs (on a 7 segment display), a calculation on the chip, an output displayed (again on a 7 segment display).

Can anyone help me?

A button on an input and resisters from the outputs to the display Very Happy

Depending on the pic, you might need a resonator or crystal and caps. You might also need a voltage regulator, and you should put a cap across the power leads Very Happy

This might help.
