Schematics & Info Step 2 of 5
Below I have provided the schematics of this circuit for the more advanced builders. If you are not comfortable building circuits from the schematic, just continue to the next step.
LED Matrix Circuit
555 Timer Circuit
How it works:
The 555 timer chip is the heart of this circuit. It creates pulses of electricity control how fast the strobe turns on and off. The timer part of the circuit can output pulses of 5v, 1.5A electricity maximum. So, if you want to make your own LED matrix and connect it to the flasher circuit, make sure that it fits within those specifications!
