Product #: MKEMS10

The "Three Fives" Discrete 555 Timer kit from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories is a faithful and functional transistor-scale replica of the classic NE555 timer integrated circuit, one of the most classic, popular, and all-around useful chips of all time.

 

 

The Three Fives kit was designed by Eric Schlaepfer, in collaboration with Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. The kit is lovingly designed to resemble an (overgrown) integrated circuit, based around an extra-thick matte-finish printed circuit board. It comes complete with a tough and sturdy plastic stand that gives the circuit board eight legs in the shape of DIP-packaged integrated circuit pins.
Kit size
  • The Three Fives kit printed circuit board is 5.215 X 3.175 inches (13.25 X 8.06 cm) in area, and (nominally) 0.100" (2.54 mm) thick.
  • Including the "IC Leg" stand and terminal posts, the overall size of the assembled kit is nominally 5.215 X 3.9 X 1.70 inches (13.25 X 9.9 X 4.3 cm).
  • Materials and construction
  • The "IC Leg" stand consists of two pieces of machined and formed semi-rigid PVC (plastic) foam, each held to the circuit board with machine screws.
  • The circuit board in the kit comes pre-fitted with eight 8-32 threaded inserts for the terminal posts.
  • The included terminal post screws are stainless steel thumbscrews with color-coded plastic caps (1 red, 1 black, 6 gray)
