help with a chaser board
Hi all i am very very new to all of this and i am working to light up a model if you can help me i would be very great full.
Ok so i want to connect Led 1 threw 5 to the 555 timer and 6and 7 to be solid on.
The resistors are 1/4 W 5% 470R OHM
I was told to put the resistors on the negative point of the LED for the chasers. Do i need to put some on the Solid ones?
I am using 4 AA Batteries for power and that gives me 6V. All of the lights will be in a serial circuit.
The chasers Led are 3mm 5.0V @ 20mA
The solid Led are 3mm 3.6V @ 20MA
The fun part: How do i connect it all together?
I bought a Breadboard and i am trying to figure it out lol !!!
Now i was told that the timer chip is to bridge the gap image 2
That i also has to connect the the bottom and top of the gap like so image 3
OK so on the breadboard the resistors go parallel? from the 555 chip image 4?
And the Led goes like this for the chaser image 5 ?
Any help would be great and thanks
