Random Flashing LED
In recent years, the chapter ‘flashing lights’ in its many incarnations, has already received plenty of attention in Elektor Electronics. Therefore, a newly presented flasher circuit has to have at least one special characteristic in order to be considered for publication.The version described here is therefore definitely not an ‘ordinary’ flasher. Unlike most other circuits, the on/off rhythm of this circuit is not regular, but random. The circuit will undoubtedly find applications in various games, while it may also be very appropriate as a ‘pseudo-alarm-indicator’ to deter potential burglars.
