1Hz Pulse Generator Circuit by IC 555

This is a 1Hz pulse generator circuit using the timer IC 555 which is wired as an Astable Multivibrator. The output pulses can be indicated visually by the LED. An Astable Multivibrator, often called a free-running Multivibrator, is a rectangular-wave generating circuit. This circuit does not require any external trigger to change the state of the output, hence the name free-running. This circuit can be used in applications that require clock pulses

We can set the 555 to work at the desired frequency by selecting the right combination of resistances & capacitance.

Frequency = 1.44 / {(R1 + 2R2) * C1}
