Discrete 555 Timer – PCB


4 in stock

Already have a selection of your own components and don’t fancy the entire kit?? Then grab just the PCB.

Available in four fab colours; matt black, purple, blue and green.

The “EZ version” features increased transistor pad size and spacing making for an easier soldering experience, ideal if you are new to soldering. If you fancy a bit more of a challenge then the “Standard Version” is for you. Just be sure to select the desired option before adding to the cart.

SKU: pcb_555_01 Category:


From its beginnings in 1971, the humble 555 timer IC has found itself at the heart of many designs.

Now you can find out what makes the 555 timer tick and build your own with this PCB.  Note that this product is the PCB and instructions only. If you don’t have your own components, then the kit version is best for you.

Instant access to the pdf instructions upon purchase (via confirmation email) and the PCB is usually dispatched within two working days.

See this kit being used as a clock with a Z80 CPU on YouTube.
