Three Ways to Make LED Chaser Circuit With Speed Control + Back and Forth Effect

Introduction: Three Ways to Make LED Chaser Circuit With Speed Control + Back and Forth Effect

LED Chaser Circuit is a circuit in which the LEDs lights one by one for a period of time and the cycle repeats giving the running light appearance.

Here, I will show you three different ways to make a LED Chaser Circuit :-

1. 4017 IC

2. 555 Timer IC

3. Only Transistors

You can also control the speed of all the three circuits by varying the resistance.
