NE555 pinout –
- Ground (GND): Connected to the ground or 0V reference of the circuit.
- Trigger (TRIG): This pin is used to initiate the timing cycle when the voltage at this pin drops below a certain threshold.
- Output (OUT): The output pin where the timed pulses or waveform is generated.
- Reset (RESET): When this pin receives a low signal, it resets the timing cycle and interrupts the output.
- Control Voltage (CONT): This pin allows an external voltage to control the timing characteristics of the IC.
- Threshold (THRES): This pin is connected to a voltage level that determines when the timing cycle should end.
- Discharge (DIS): Connected to an external capacitor, this pin allows the discharge of the timing capacitor during the cycle.
- VCC: The positive supply voltage pin, typically connected to the positive power supply of the circuit.
