Running LEDs

Running LEDs circuit diagram
This is running LEDs circuit which use timer ID NE555N and logic IC 4017N. IC 555 act as a multivibrator and generate frequency to be used for 4017 clock input.

The 4017 is a high speed silicon gate CMOS 5-stage Johnson counter with 10 decoded outputs. Each of the decoded outputs is normally low and sequentially goes high on the low to high transition clock period of the 10 clock period cycle. The CARRY (TC) output transitions low to high after OUTPUT 10 goes from high to low, and can be used in conjunction with the CLOCK ENABLE (CE) to cascade several stages. The CLOCK ENABLE input disables counting when in the high state. A RESET (MR) input is also provided which when taken high sets all the decoded outputs, except “0”, low.

R2 is a linear potensiometer to adjust clock frequency and of course the frequency of the blinking LEDs as well.

    how about 100 led in running led circuit diagram? and led is on one by one..?

  5. hyuugaze

    bos…kalau 100 led running led yang hidupya bergantian satu per satu gimana…? tolong dibantu ya…

    what are the following materials to be used..?
    whay are the following step by step procedure ?
    the schematic diagram?
    the final diagram ( actual)

    cause im doing my project???

    i hve worked on this and it works perfectly. and you dont need another ic s. all u need to do is connect ur led in parallel on a bread board with the aid of jumpers.

    now i was wondering if i want a longer row of leds must i add another trip5 or a 4107n

  10. dhianne

    hi,. i would like to do this project,. i want to know what are the materials needed? thanks.,

  11. joanna

    i have a running light project too…but mine is just simple…im kinda disappointed to have found out about your site after i finished my project…i could have done better…anyway,where is this applied?

  12. Davinder

    what are the materials for that circuit
    diagram???

    becausei’m doing that in my project…

  13. rohit

    what are the components required for this……..
