CSS555 Application Circuits

Examples of a number of 555 timer circuits to help show the advantages of the CSS555 and CSS555C Micropower 555 Timer ICs. These circuits demonstrate many of the basic 555 timer functions and can also be used as a starting point to improve existing timer circuits.


 

CSS555 Serial Interface

A detailed description of the 4-wire serial interface, pin functions, commands, bit assignments and signal timing for the CSS555 and CSS555C Micropower 555 Timer ICs.


 

CSS555 SPICE Model

A SPICE model for the CSS555 and CSS555C Micropower 555 Timer ICs, providing a simulation capability at the component level. To make it portable across many simulators, it uses only Level 1 device models. The comparators are modeled with BLM gain blocks to reduce simulation time.
