About the Challenge
Hackaday and Digi-Key have partnered on this contest inviting participants to design using the 555 timer chip or one of its variants (556, 558, low power versions, etc.), or even build 555 from discrete components. The final design is expected to have classic 555 circuit as a central part of the design.
However the participants are not limited to using 555s, but the timer chip should be central to the circuit.
