NE555 timer

Scoring game circuit

Description. A simple scoring game circuit that can be used for all occasions when a dice is needed.The circuit is based on a NE555 timer,a 74LS192 counter,a74LS247 decoder and a & segment LED display.The timer IC1 will produce the clock for the counter IC(IC2) whose frequency is determined by R1 and C2.When S2 is pressed […]

Missing pulse detector circuit using NE555

Description. An NE555 timer IC connected as shown here can detect a missing pulse or abnormally long period between two consecutive pulses in a train of pulses. Such circuits can be used to detect the intermittent firing of the spark plug of an automobile or to monitor the heart beat of a sick patient. The […]

Automobile turn signal circuit.

Description. This is a simple circuit that can be used as a sequential signal light in automobiles. The circuit is based on two ICs. A TS 555 CN CMOS timer IC and a CD4017 decade counter IC. The IC1 is wired as an astable multivibrator to trigger the counter IC. When triggered, the outputs of […]

Dual Tone Train Horn Circuit

Description. A dual tone train horn simulator circuit can be made using two NE 555 timers connected in cascade.Here instead of using two NE 555 timers a single NE 556 timer is used which is a nothing but two 555′s in one package and each timers work independently.Switch S1 can be used to start the […]

Door bell circuit using NE555

Description. The main part of this doorbell circuit are two NE555 timer ICs.When some one presses switch S1 momentarily ,the loud speaker sounds a bell tone as long as the time period of the monostable multivibrator built around IC1. When the switch S1 pressed, IC1 is triggered at its pin 2 and output pin 3 […]

Ding-Dong sound generator

Description. This is the circuit diagram of a ding dong sound generator based on two NE555 timer ICs.The circuit is designed to toggle between two adjustable frequencies to produce the ding dong sound. The first NE555 (IC1) is wires as an astable multivibrator operating at 1Hz. The frequency of the second NE555 (IC2) is modulated […]

An ideal circuit for home to protect your valuable equipments from voltage fluctuations. The same circuit with some modifications can be used to make a automatic […]

Op-Amp Comparator

Most digital systems require some kind of a timing waveform, for instance, a source of trigger pulses is required for all clocked sequential systems. In digital systems, a rectangular waveform is most desirable (unlike analog systems where sinusoidal signals are often used). The generators of rectangular waveforms are referred to as multivibrators. Multivibrators are of […]
