how are the pins on a ic numbered? Answered
i have been trying to make cylon light bar thing.
but it isn't working, all the wires an connections are done according to what is said and i asked my neighbour to have a look he is a electrician and he was surprised it didn't go as well.
its the NE555 i put it togther. looking down on the plastic.
1-| o U |-8
was that the wrong way? i have seen other circuit diagrams and the pin numbers where not like that.
oh and also is some solder non-conductive? and can you burn wires and make them useless?
i don't think i could have fried the chip i getting pro at quick soldering.
