picaxe 08m schematic

I need to build a pcb that has a temperature sensor and 1 or 2 buttons as input, and can control 6v power out to a device under certain conditions (wether button is pressed, temperature is at certain level, etc.) Where do I start? Do I need to order, and program a microprocessor, and a custom built pcb? Is there anyone I can hire to do the electronic work? If I am to do it myself, what knowledge will I need? I have a very limited knowledge of basic electronics, enough to wire a car up, but not enough to custom build something useful. Thank you guys so much in advance!

Hi,

I can do the PCB work for you if you want, but give me the schematic diagram
of the dirduit you have designed. OR if you want it do do it yerself try reading this documant link below:



PS. there are many free softwares for PCB printing you can download such as AutoTRAX EDA, EagleCAD, or the ones that I used, Diptrace

If you can get hands on PICAXE microcontrollers - try them ..
They are the easiest to learn and to program microcontrollers and info, software and lots of examples are readily available on the web .. see links below ..

Here is an example of temperature controller based on PICAXE-08M:

As temperature sensor you can conside the mentioned above DS1820 or very popular LM35 ..
