LED Chaser Circuit

In this article, you are going to learn how to make a led chaser circuit with 8 different effects. Led Chaser is a circuit which blinks LEDs in a particular frequency and particular pattern so that it provides the effect of illusion, LED are moving. These LED chasers are used in decorative lighting. The LEDs lights one by one for a period of 1second and the cycle repeats giving the running light appearance.
