I don't know anything about electronics, but I'm willing to learn if this project is possible: I'd like to build a very compact timer that runs on AC 115v 60hz. It would consist of a simple clock circuit that outputs to some kind of programmable logic circuit. This circuit would be programmed to turn a relay on/off at specific times of the day (it could be a one time programmable type of thing). My ideal design would be all solid state and fairly compact, like less that 1.5" (~ 40 mm) cube. What I'd basically be making is a lamp timer like the ones you can find at walmart, but much smaller and minus the digital interface. Is this possible, and if so how cheap could it be made? Any suggestions on manufacturers of the components? Thanks.
