This circuit is based on two commonly used IC that is NE555 timer and CD4017 IC with few more components. 555 timer IC wired as an monostable oscillator. In this circuit NE555 monostable generates a clock for the circuit, which provide a oscillating wave to the output pin 3 of IC1. Monostable or one short multivibrator has only one stable state and we have to trigger it externally to return it back to its original state. CD4017 is a CMOS counter/ divider IC . It take clock signal from the clock input and turn on the 10 output in sequence, each time when it receives clock input pulses. It is the most popular IC and extremely useful in various project like Light Chaser, Matrix Die. In order to understand the working of IC one must know about its individual pin.

It can be used in various applications like in 7 segments decimal display circuit, in clocks, timer etc.
What is this? This is a device which will detect the organic living organisms when it is come in contact. It will send the signal in the form of electric current. If the organism is big enough, then the amount of current as a signal will found out the size of the organism. If the size of the organism is very big like an elephant then the amount of current will be very high. Oh…… this is a task to do. Let’s talk about how it actually works.How it works? I usually make very easy circuits for you so that very weak student in electric current can also be able to understand it and make it. So here it goes…..It only works with 2 transistors, both PNP and NPN. Just you should have two transistors and by connecting it in the particular pattern and then you will be ready with that.
Many times it happen when somebody comes home in night and press the door bell, We search for the porch light switch. To identify that the visitor who as press the door bell is known or unknown person before opening the door. This circuit will help you to solve the problem. When a visitor press the doorbell switch it will automatically on the porch light after sometime so that when you reach near the door you don’t have to search for light switch. This circuit will automatically off the light after some time. This circuit also has the facility to on the porch light from inside the house. In day time you can off the light with the help of switch S3. Doorbell cum light has inbuilt doorbell so you do not require to purchase a door bell.

The performance of each and every electronic system or electronic circuit depends upon the power supply that energizes the circuit or system. It provides required current to the circuit. Any disturbance noise in this power supply can cause problem in working or operation of circuit. If there is any deviation in this power supply level the circuit may not work properly. The accuracy and precision of circuit operation depends upon it. In some of the circuits all the calibration are done at this voltage level. So all these calibrations becomes false if there is fluctuation in supply level. There are two types of power supplies: Unregulated power supply, Regulated power supply. Unregulated supply is used in some circuits where there is no much change in required load current. The load current remains fixed or deviation is very less. Read more to know about this interesting power supply project.
Seven segment displays nowadays are commonly used in place of dot matrix display. They have found their use in places like microwave or fancy toaster oven or the same on washing machine but before using them in all these places you need to interface the 7 segment display with microcontroller or some more hardware will be required. But with the basic knowledge of 7 segments display you can use it in front of your shop or you can display your name on it. 7 segment displays numbers from 0 to 9 and some alphabets.7 segment display are labelled a to g and decimal point is usually known as DP. DP is the common point. In common cathode display they are connected to ground and rest pin are connected to supply. Similarly in common anode DP are connected to supply and rest are connected to ground. You can also use more than one display according to your requirement.
The electronics devices works in dc power supply comes with different voltage specifications. Some devices works in battery power with voltages ranging from 1.5V to 9V, but majority of the devices can be directly plugged into a power plug. Such devices have a built in AC to low voltage DC converter inside it and the voltage output of that converter will be corresponding to the design of the entire circuit. The design of a circuit actually begins with considering the value of the voltage which will be supplied to it.The circuits which work in 5V power supply are most common which contains 5V TTL devices, but there is other category of TTL devices which works in 3.3V supply. Apart from these two categories there are CMOS based circuits and there is all kind of analog circuits which are designed to work on different voltages. Those who are interested in working with all these kind of circuits should have a variable power supply source.

You might have seen so many applications and circuits based on monostable multivibrator using IC555 like intruder alarm, automatic night lamp, smoke detector, fire alarm, automatic gate controller, object counter etc. In all such circuits monostable multivibrator is used. We may easily understand the operation of the circuit but many of us don’t know how such circuits are designed. So here I will try to explain how such circuits are designed using some examples.To detect the light we need any photo sensor and the LDR is one of the most convenient photo sensor. It works on photo conductivity principal. That means its resistance varies as light falls on it. In absense of light the resistance of LDR is maximum and as light intensity increases the resistance decreases. So we can use this property in designing this circuit. As the resistance of LDR changes, the voltage across it also changes and this voltage is used to trigger monostable multivibrator.
