Introduction: LED Flasher Circuit (555 Timer)

I did this extra credit project for my intro to electric circuit class few years back.

How it works.

555 timer: Its an integrated circuit (IC) that has 8 leads, and it acts as switch that helps charge and discharge capacitors in the circuit. Hence creating a flashing led.

Thanks

    Always helpful to post a schematic inline with the Instructable.
