## 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...

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..

HOPE THIS HELPED..!!!
