This NE555 square wave pulse generator module can be used to produce square wave signals for experimental development or in applications such as driving stepper motors, and as an adjustable pulse generator for microcontroller (MCU) applications.
Features an NE555 timer chip configured in four frequency ranges, 1Hz to 50Hz, 50Hz to 1kHz, 1kHz to 10kHz and 10kHz to 200kHz all adjustable with onboard jumpers and two trim-pots to adjust the output frequency and the duty cycle.
Input voltage to the module (VCC) is variable from 5V to 15V DC and draws approximately 15mA at 5v (35mA at 12v) with an output amplitude of 4.2V peak-to-peak to 11.4V peak-to-peak based on the supply voltage.
An indicator LED illuminates on a low-level output and flashes relative to the output frequency. At higher frequencies, the LED will appear to be on solid and without a visible flash.
