Description

4017 Light Chaser Kit

The 4017 is a 5-stage Johnson counter that has 10 outputs that turn on one after another. This IC is a commonly used 4000 series part and can be used in many scenarios including finite state machines, simple counters, and even time division. In this kit, you will build a 4017 based variable light chaser that is great for solder practice as well as entertaining for sci-fi looking scenes.

Applications

The 4017 Light Chaser kit is a highly suitable project for classrooms as it is simple in design, uses high-quality parts, and can be constructed in under an hour. The 4017 Light Chaser is also ideal as a teaching aid demonstrating how the 4017 operates, how the 555 can be used as a clock source, and how to use LEDs in parallel. The 4017 Light Chaser is also ideal for those who want to create light chase displays including LED ties, signs, decoration, and props for video / TV. An alternative to the 4017 Light Chaser is the Traffic Light Controller which uses the 4017 to create the UK traffic light sequence which can be ideal for those who want to create miniatures.
