Using the ‘555 timer IC’ in a variety of useful astable multivibrator or squarewave generator applications.
Practical MOSFET and CMOS circuits. Part 3 of 4
One of the most popular types of multi-LED indicator circuits is the so called analog-value indicator or ‘graph’ display. Here is a variety of practical LED dot-graph and bar-graph analog-value display circuits.
Practical JFET circuits. Part 2 of 4
555 timer IC basics and ways of using it in monostable applications.
The LED chaser or sequencer is one of the most popular types of LED-driving circuits and is widely used in advertising displays and in running-light ‘rope’ displays.
The most widely used of all optoelectronic devices is the simple LED (light emitting diode). Here is a presentation of a variety of indicator and flasher circuits using LEDs.
