Timer for UV box

Ok, here the deal.
The need is to develop a timer, faster, capable to control up to 16 UV fluorescent bulbs.
Up to 2 hours, 1 second precision, display to show the countdown and menu' management, digital encoder for input, pushbuttons/LEDs.

It can be done in thousands ways, but this time I'll try to put it together using Energia and a BIG help from Roberto.

Embedded RPOf

The next thing to do about the RPOf is to embed it in a piggy back board over the Raspberry Pi.
The Raspberry Pi GPIO connector has both the 3.3V and 5V rail available, so to have a more compact system, embedding the RPOf on the "shield" connected to the Raspberry Pi, can helps to reduce the space and number of boards.
