I have earlier written about 555 timer design contest. 555 Servo Controller was winner in several categories. It looked so simple and “have seen that eariler” type of circuit that I wondered why this was so winning circuit:
Finally after few days I got time to check out the Simple 555 timer based servo controllers page to see why this won. The circuit is simple, but the video showing the applications of it was pretty amazing. So I no longer wonder why this circuit got the prices. This 555 timer based analog robotics video is very interesting to look at if you are into robotics in any way.
