Using 555/6 as a multivibrator we can measure the capacity of the connected capacitor.
At all times, the 555/6 charges to 2/3 VCC and discharges to 1/3 VCC the connected capacitor, supplying a rectangular signal at the output in accordance with the capacitor charging and dischar...

A simple but flawed idea to make a fixed frequency variable duty cycle oscillator based on a 555
timer and using the push-pull output to drive the RC timing through two routing diodes, a pot and a
series resistor to limit the min/max duty cycle to something sensible at around 9%/91%.
If the diode drops were negligible and the 555 timer output pulled fully up to VCC and down to
Learn how to make a precisely adjustable timer with a variable delay from 1 - 100 seconds that uses the 555 IC. The 555 timer is configured as a Monostable Multivibrator. The output load is driven by the relay switch which is in turn controlled by the timer circuit.

**555 timer based PWM LED dimmer**
This project uses PWM to turn on and off a LED (or a strip of them) really fast and changes the duty cycle (Fig.1) so that the human brain perceive it as the dimming of the LED(s). This means that the MOSFET doesn’t have to drop large amount of voltage, this makes the device very energy efficient.
Water detector with 4 level stages. Each stage makes the 555 timer to give a supply period for the buzzer. The active buzzer transmits sound with a pause period between 0.5-3 seconds, depending on the level detected.
