This is a DIY digital scoreboard for indoor games. All the modules of the scoreboard come fully assembled. You just have to find a way to fix it on a wooden board or make other arrangements to make it beautiful and usable for your sport.
- 2 players/teams Arduino based digital Scoreboard
- Programmable using FTDI basic breakout board
- Works with SCORE4 app and SCORE4T app
- Send specific numbers to the displays using the app
- When scores are displayed from 0-9, the left digit is off. For example, if a team scores a 7, the scoreboard displays only 7, not 07.
- Bluetooth is the communication medium between the Scoreboard and app
- You can send scores to two Scoreboards simultaneously with the app
- The scoreboard does not reset even if the Bluetooth is disconnected.
- Can be controlled with 4CH RF remote control
- Use switches to manually increase or decrease the count
- 4″ scoreboard works with 12V.
PCB Dimensions: 4″ scoreboard: 450.8 mm* 147.3 mm
This Scoreboard can be used along with ‘Scoreduino Timer’ also. The following video shows 3″ scoreboard, however, the timer can also be used with 4″ Scoreboard. Please have a look.
To build this scoreboard, we have combined three modules.
- SCOREDUINO_B: This is the central module of the Scoreboard. This is an Arduino-based controller supported by a Bluetooth module and an RF module for communicating with the 2 digits displays placed on its two sides. Read more about Scoreduino_B.
- The right display: The right display gets up and down count commands from the central Scoreduino-B controller. The commands can be sent by RF remote control or SCORE4 module of the Scoreduino app. Specific numbers can also be sent to the right display.
- The left display: The left display also gets up and down count commands from the central Scoreduino-B controller. The commands can be sent by RF remote control or SCORE4 module of the Scoreduino app. Specific numbers can also be sent to the left display.
- RF receiver and the remote control: It uses the basic 4CH RF module and remote control to send commands.
- Bluetooth module: The scoreboard can be controlled with SCORE4 module of the Scoreduino app and it communicates via Bluetooth. There are two apps designed for this scoreboard.
- Score4 app without timer controller function
- Score4T with timer controller function
Power supply: 4″ Scoreboards work with 12V
How does it work?
To understand this working principle of Scoreboard, you need to understand two modules:
- SCOREDUINO_B: This is an Arduino based controller that sends up and down commands to up and down counters. The schematic of SCOREDUINO_B.
- Single-digit up and down counter module: We have described how 74LS192/CD40192 based up and down counter modules work. You need to combine two of the single-digit counters and connect them to SCOREDUINO_B. The schematic of single-digit counter is here.

- Fully electronically assembled Scoreboard
- 12V Power supply (shipped from third party store)
