GPS time on the Alpha Clock Five with Adafruit Ultimate GPS

Adafruit 1166

GPS time on the Alpha Clock Five @ Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories.

William Phelps recently wrote to us with alternative firmware for Alpha Clock Five, our oversized alphanumeric LED clock/data display kit. His firmware adds two very welcome features: Automatic daylight saving time (DST) correction, and automatic time setting via a GPS module.  It works remarkably well.
Here, we’ll show you how to hook it all up and how to use it.

This project interfaces an Alpha Clock Five (either the classic red or newer white version), to the Adafruit Ultimate GPS Breakout.   For constructing a cable between the two, we will modify a “rainbow” 6-pin F-F header socket cable, and we’ll also need to run one more wire to provide power to the GPS module.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
