Description

Features:

The 555 Timer IC is probably the most used IC in the world. It will give an accurate timing range of micro seconds to hours. This book describes the functions and operation of the 555, then explains 21 projects to build using the IC. Some of these include photo timer, touch plate controller, car wiper control, car lights turn off, flashers, generators, delays auto power on and off, NiCad charger, frequency divider, light operated relay, etc. An ideal book for the electronic hobbyist and experimenter. 76 pages 138 x 212mm.


Handy Tip The 555 Timer

It would be a mean-spirited person who did not concede that the 555 Timer IC was - and still is - the most popular chip ever made. Invented in 1971 by a U.S. company called Signetics it has a number of really useful features. Firstly it's a timer. It's a pulse generator and finally an oscillator, all in an 8 pin package. The original version was fabricated with bipolar transistors, and although still popular a CMOS version is now dominant. The bipolar version, like 74 series TTL drew a lot of current and also created an annoying amount of switching noise on power supply rails. Such is the popularity of this circuit, it is available in standard bipolar, CMOS in single, double and quad timer packages. Jaycar still carry the product in original form, (555) dual 556, CMOS 7555 and in a single surface mount version! It was said that the name 555 came from the fact that the circuit contained 3 x 5k resistors used within. The inventor of the original device, Hans Camenzind disputes this, saying that the number of the part was arbitrary. Whatever, the fact is that around a billion of them are made every year in one form or another.
