555 Timer


Availability: Low Stock - Only 1 Remaining

The 555 timer is a staple of beginner electronic circuits. It is a precision timer circuit capable of creating an accurate time delay or oscillation ranging from microseconds to hours. It has a very wide input range of 4.5 – 16V and can sink or source up to 200mA.


SKU: IC-006 Manufacturer: Texas Instruments Mfg Part Number: NE555P Category: Tag:


The 555 timer is a versatile and widely used integrated circuit that serves as the backbone for numerous timing and pulse generation applications. The 555 timer can be configured in various modes, such as astable (oscillator), monostable (one-shot), and bistable (flip-flop), allowing it to produce precise time delays, generate continuous waveforms, or create output pulses in response to input triggers. Its operating frequency can be easily adjusted using external resistors and capacitors, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of electronic projects, from hobbyist to professional applications.

This specific version of the 555 timer is rated for use with 4.5 – 16V and can sink or source up to 200mA. The 8-pin DIP is easy to work with and breadboard compatible.
