555 Integrated Circuits

The 555 timer represents a simple integrated circuit which can be used to make different electronic circuits. Do you want to learn how the 555 works and to develop your skills into building many circuits, you are in the right place. Electroschematics.com offers you all the information and data you need to improve your knowledge and grow professionally as an engineer. The 555 integrated circuit is an easy to use timer which has many applications and is widely used in electronic circuits. This fact actually makes cheap to purchase, due to this vast popularity. It also exists a “dual” version called the 556, which includes two independent 555 ICs in one package. You may wonder what is inside the 555 timer chip or what is it that make it work. Well, the 555 timer chip is an Integrated circuit (IC) and therefore it contains a miniaturized circuit surrounded by silicon. Each of the pins is connected to the circuit which consists of over 20 transistors, 2 diodes and 15 resistors.
You can picture it put better by functional schematics that you will find inside our projects. The 555 timer datasheet specifies that 555 circuits is a highly stable device for generating accurate time delays or oscillation. Additional terminals are provided for triggering or resetting as desired . In the time delay mode of operation , the time is precisely controlled by one external resistor and capacitor. You can also learn more about features from the 555 datasheet and 555 timer application because we provide useful information so you can have the whole picture right in front of you. We invite you to learn to find out about ignition coil driver extended period 555 on-pulse timer, 555 fast reset timer and does much more than that. Our interactive and dedicated community will answer your questions and will guide through the raw information in your path of contouring yourself as a great electronics engineer.

You can find simple circuits for begginers and advanced circuits for engineers. 

Help Wanted

So I'm sitting on my couch waiting very impatiently. For what, you ask? I'm waiting for the printed copy of the "Discover A Muse" so I can double check the quality before I put the book live. Sigh... I'm not very good at waiting. So, to distract myself...look, a shiny bright bauble! Recently, when I had 30 seconds to sit quietly and think, I had a thought pop up. I am forever getting emails from folks that are offering to help me with ArtOrder. Normally I can't think of a way to let them help me. I'll admit it, I have issues around delegating. This time, I had an idea that made for a win/win situation. While I enjoyed working on the Discover a Muse book I just didn't have the time to get it accomplished in a timely means. 

The process was kind of fun though, and I liked knowing that shortly I would have a book filled with art from the challenge in my hands (and I would be able to start funneling money toward our chosen charity - Discovery Arts). I've often wanted to put together books from each of the challenges, but I've decided not to do it simply because I don't have the time to wrangle all of that together every few weeks. This is where the flash of inspiration came in. I know there are some talented folks in the audience, and I'm guessing that a few of them are skilled in the art of graphic design. So the idea came to me - why not see if someone would like to take the development of the book on! So I'm hanging out the 'help wanted' sign.

Wanted! Graphic Designer to create beautiful picture books. Must have a appreciation for fantasy and sci-fi art. Must be proficient with InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. Duties: Wrangle artists for high res files. Layout and design book. What do you get out of it? Well, I'll be truthful, it won't be fortune - this is an unpaid, volunteer position (like myself). You will get a lot of creative freedom, and a big fat credit in the book. This is an excellent opportunity for a nice portfolio piece if you play your cards right. I'd love to circle back around and start with the Lovecraft challenge, and pick up as many of the other challenges as we want to do. It all depends on how many folks raise there hand. I would like to start offering books for all of the challenges rolling forward. If you are interested, send me an email with "Book Designer" in the subject line, and a link to your design portfolio or a few samples.
