http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com – Found this statement today,: "The 555 is not suited for battery applications and it is not really suited for combining with some types of CMOS circuitry. The 555 is a very noisy chip and has a very nasty internal feature called "crow-bar effect" that can put a lot of noise on the power rails of a circuit." I thought the 555 was good for almost all circuits?:confused: Even battery circuits? Link to statement: http://www.talkingelectronics.com/te...ive_index.html (Embedded)
