555 Timer Calculator Answered

Hi everyone, I was looking around on the internet a while ago for a calculator for 555 timer circuits and couldn't find one that worked very well. Then I set about making my own in a Excel spreadsheet to calculate the frequency and duty cycle for me. I have decided to share it with everyone to help others. It is quite simple. Enter your vaules into the yellow boxes and get your frequency and/or duty cycle from the blue boxes.


That's a good idea. Maybe highlight it in a small ible, describing how to use 555 chips in this way?

i might be working on one already... XD
