The 555 was designed 1971 by Hans Camenzind and has become an icon in the chip world. What will you make with the 555!?

We could not resist (get it) – get the 555 for .55 or get 10 for 5.55 – oh the horror of this joke!

Product Description

The 555 can be used to provide time delays, as an oscillator, and as a flip-flop element.
