Introduction: Hey Beginners - Flashing Led With an IC 555 for Dummies.. Basics of Electronics
Before you get into making this circuit.. learn a bit of basics in electronics.. like.. how to use a breadboard... basic components used in electronics and stuff... there are a lot of tutorials on youtube..!!!
Step 1: WATCH THE VIDEO.. Get an Idea of What You're Upto...
The video explains the process of making this simple circuit..
components you'll need :
1x - NE555 Bipolar Timer
1x - LED (Red)
1x - 470K Resistor (1/4W)
2x - 1K Resistor (1/4W)
1x - 1uF Electrolytic Capacitor (16V)
1x - 9V Voltage Battery
1x - battery connector
Step 2: This the Circuit You Are Going to Design.. Observe
This is what you will be designing.. to understand this you'll have to learn the basics as said earlier...
Step 3: Keep Your Breadboards Ready....
You'll need 1 breadboard to complete this circuit...
Step 4: Connect Your Battery Connector to the Sides of the Breadboard...
Connect your battery connector to the terminals in the sides of the Breadboards.. connect the positive(+) to one side and the negative(-) to the other...
WARNING : CONNECT THE BATTERY CONNECTOR BUT NOT THE BATTERY ITSELF...
Step 5: Place All Your Components As You Wish in Their Places...
Place all the components across the breadboard.. do not sandwich the components together in one place..
TIP: remember the positive terminal of the capacitor and LED..
Step 6: Make the Connections
Make the connections as shown in the circuit above
Step 7: CONGRATS.. YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR FIRST CIRCUIT..
IF YOU EVER HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE CIRCUIT.. DO NOT HESITATE TO LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW..
