I need some EE help with a project I am trying. What I need is a timing chip whose time(s) are set by rotating a dial. Set the dial to 1sec. When you power the circuit (switch) you get a 1sec pulse of power to the output and then it stops. Im looking to have a 10-12 position rotary dial connected to a timing chip. How the hell do I go about even starting this project? How does one get EXACT timed pulses from the chip...do I need to program it? I need non-crazy times like 1s, 1/100th, 1/1000th etc. So, to reiterate my ranting unintelligible self: set dial to a certain time power on the circuit timing chip reads setting on dial and outputs appropriate amount of time in a power pulse This will allow me to turn on/off a device with perfect timing I can set. HELP!?
