Continuing the expansion of its standard linear product portfolio, Diodes Incorporated has announced the introduction of a series of low-cost 555 timer ICs. Diodes’ first three timers, designed as drop-in replacements for the enduring industry-standard parts, support a wide range of operating temperatures to cover both commercial and industrial product requirements: NE555 (0 to +70ºC), SA555 (-40ºC to +85ºC) and NA555 (-40ºC to +105ºC).
Originally developed more than forty years ago, the 555 was the first commercially available timer, providing designers with an inexpensive, stable and user-friendly circuit. The 555 timers are broadly used in a wide variety of applications ranging from electronic toys to industrial controls. With hundreds of millions of units estimated to be manufactured each year, the 555 continues to see widespread use and today remains a first choice in a multitude of precision timer, oscillator and pulse-generation applications.
The 555 timers from Diodes Incorporated are supplied in the small outline SO8 package. Further information can be found at www.diodes.com
