DIY Timecode Slate? Anyone know where I can find a circuit board?

I'm looking at the possibility of making my own SMPTE Timecode slate, but I'm wondering if anyone knows who sells the boards for these things? I think I have the rest figured out and sourced, it's just a matter of finding someone who makes the electronics. If anyone knows, I would appreciate it.
Thanks
Kit

I'd love to have one of these too. Just curious how it connects to the camera?

I have put a couple of very bad videos of the hand wired versions here

Update

I've been working very long hours on my little project, and probably have an answer/solution for you.
http://es.geocities.com/mart_in_medina/WiP5.html The site is a bit rough and ready, but I think I hope you can get the basic info from it

I sort of update it daily, so the datasheet is a bit out of date, by at least 3 days

Hope this helps

need sleep,
bye for now
