LED Flashing Rail road circuit using 555 timer IC – Breadboard

Introduction

In this tutorial, we are going to make an LED flashing rail road circuit using a 555 timer IC. 555 timer IC will act as a astable multivibrator with around 12% of duty cycle. You can also play around with the resistors to change the value and increase or decrease the clock cycle. We are going to see the step by step tutorial to make the circuit on breadboard.

For this tutorial, you will need the below components.

For India

You can buy whole kit from here - Electronics Kit DIY Components
(You can get some components from the market, but I will recommend you to have the above kit as has all basic necessary items for begineers)
Mini Breadboard - 1
9V battery - 1
Wire Stripper - 1
Battery Snapper - 1
Nose Plier - 1
555 timer IC - 1
220Ohm Resistor - 1
47K Resistor - 1
10uf Capacitor - 1
Green LED - 1
Red LED - 1

For USA

You can buy all in one 555 timer kit from here - Electronics Kit DIY Components
(Some items may not be present in the above kit, but still I will recommend it buying since we will be doing a lots of 555 timer IC projects in upcoming tutorials. You will need a kit like this to learn.)
