    Hi all,
    This is the group project that we've been spending 3 months to work out (Oct '07 to Dec '07). I don't know why this title is chosen, in this subject, everyteam is doing the same project. So in order to get score higher, we have to make something different :D
    This is basically a blackjack game with LCD text module and these are the spec required by the lecturer:
    Either one addtional features can be chosen, but my group has successfully done all :D

    To save the power consumed, before going into sleep, the LCD is turned of by the PIC, since it is powered directly from the PIC. The most challenging part is, when the PIC wake up, the LCD has to be reinitialized. Besides, the LCD must redisplay the page where before going into sleep. So in anywhere of the game (while adjusting the bet, while playing, while viewing the stastistic) the PIC will go to sleep if no button is pressed within 30 second. In anywhere of the game, the player will be able to view the statistic, total game, win, lose, draw, blackjack.

    To score higher, we have to do something different. My group is using a 3 V button cell with a boost regulator LTC3401. The rest of them are using 9 V battery :D

    For the randomness, since PIC16F88 is used

    These are the spec of it:
    Size
    Weight: approximately (100g)
    Dimension: 95mm x 55 mm x 30mm
    Color: Black
    Shape: Rectangular

    Standby mode (sleep) : 1275 hours (1.4mW)
    Operating mode : 85 hours (21mW)

    Battery: CR2450 3 V button cell

    That's a far worse idea, because it stops people altering it (or at least makes it harder), but a HEX file is better than nothing.
