    Flashing LED

    Real quick, we can just use 1 555 wired as Monostable to control the time the other 555 is flashing the led, that will allow you to set time like you want. The one that is flashing will be wires as Astable which gives you the frequency you want, fast/slow, to flash the led. How long do you want...

    Flashing LED

    I don't have the time tonight but will show you with a video and write up tomorrow. Sorry I worked a 12 hour overnight shift last night and need to get some sleep tonight. Check in around noon or so.

    Welcome to the forum!

    High David, glad to have you here. I have not been on here in a while and see that the board has been very quiet for quite some time. I hope to hear some of your ideas soon.

    Flashing LED

    That all depends on the frequency you want. Increasing the capacitance will decrease the frequency so decreasing the capacitance will increase frequency. Changing R1 and R2 will alter the high and low time also. Here is a good online calculator for this...

    Parts list - help us find parts.

    I try to keep them lower than others and always free shipping in the U.S. I have a lot more than is listed, I just never seem to have the time to list them.

    Bi-Polar LED Driver

    The green led is being sourced by the timer and the red led is being sunk. That means the green is lete with +V from pin 3 of timer and red is lite with -V from pin 3. Does that make sense?

    Traffic Lights

    I think I see what is wrong. If you look back to the link that Daithi posted you need to have pins 1, 5, 7, 9 in series with green, 10, 11 in series with yellow, and 12 in series with red. Please take a closer look at your schematic. I might be getting confused between Q# and pin number so...

    Metal Detector

    I have never built a metal detector and really can't answer your question but I did find this web site that looks like it could be very helpful to you. Good luck! EDIT - After reading the web site a little more it may not be that great. Best bet is to search for building a metal detector, I am...

    Old telephone to cell phone switch

    Where is the cell phone in relation to the old phone, in the same room? How is the old phone connected to the cell? Is that the 3.5mm jack. I am just a little confused on your setup. If you could add a drawing showing what you have and how it is connected now if that is the case. Maybe add...

    Display cabinet - pir motion sensor & led circuit 555

    It looks like that sensor you linked to on eBay will time delay up to 18 seconds and I would bet you could just hook your led strip right to the output pins. For the .99 cost it would be worth a try. You would most likely have to add the transistor circuit like in the video to handle multiple...
