Digi-Key – Industry-standard precision timer ICs for general-purpose timing applications (Diode Inc - NE555)Jul 4 2012 - Semiconductors [More Semiconductors Articles]
Now available from Digi-Key, Diode Inc.’s industry-standard precision timer ICs offer a broad operating temperature range for general-purpose timing applications
The NE555, SA555 and NA555 devices are capable of producing accurate time delays or oscillation. They are used in a broad range of applications ranging from electronic toys to home experimentation. The parts are compatible with competitive parts from TI, NSC, ST, Fairchild and others.
In the time-delay or monostable mode of operation, the timed interval is controlled by a single external resistor and capacitor network. In the astable mode of operation, the frequency and duty cycle can be controlled independently with two external resistors and a single external capacitor.
The three devices offer a selection of operating temperature ranges covering commercial and industrial applications. All three devices are supplied in a small outline 8-pin package (SO-8).More news from Digikey
