Essential 555 IC: Design, Configure, and Create Clever Circuits

With this book you'll build a series of unique and useful projects. Each one gets more and more complicated, and you'll learn more as you go along.

Start off with a basic 555 timer IC design concept to build a simple project. Learn how to create a simple form of digital memory that can store data, the basis of every computer system ever created. Build a collection of lighting effect circuits that will flash and animate LEDs in different ways. Use a simple configuration of the 555 timer IC to create a complex traffic light system. You'll even create sound with an audio synthesizer!

No programming is needed to make startlingly functional electronic devices.

Get started today building the next big thing. Or even the next small thing. But build some thing!
