Timer with 555

Timer with 555

Today we will build a circuit that is a timer. The IC 555 was used. This was set to Mono-stable mode. When the button is pressed the time starts and the LED lights up. After a while it goes off …

Infrared LED Alarm

Infrared LED Alarm

Today we will build a circuit that detects the interruption of an infrared beam allowing an alarm to be created. The LM358 IC has two comparators. Pin 3 which is the non-inverted end of the voltage comparator is connected to …

Signal Meter (VU Meter)

Signal Meter (VU Meter)

Today a circuit will be built using an LM3915 IC and it will visually represent the intensity of an audio signal. The LM3915 has an amplitude of 30 dB and the 10 LEDs are activated in 3 dB intervals. If …

Doorbell

Doorbell

Today a circuit will be built to make a two-tone doorbell. We will use two ICs, one CD4060 which is an oscillator with a 14-step binary counter and a CD4001 that implements 4 NOR ports. The first integrated will divide …

Logic Probe

Logic Probe

Today we will build two circuits that work as logic probes that inform us of the state of the signal under analysis through LEDs. One circuit uses the IC CD4001 and the other uses the IC CD4011, the first implements …
