The entire connection is realized by means of three astable flip-flops. The middle flip-flop controls the transistors T1 and T2. It controls on which side the connected LED will be lit. The other two flip-flops control transistors T3 and T10, which control the number of flashes on the LED. Only passive components are used – 10 transistors, the connection is not complicated and therefore recommended for beginners.
The connection is powered by the car’s on-board voltage or any source with a 12V DC output. A maximum load of 500mA can be connected to the output. BC337 transistors are sufficient for two LED panels with 48 LEDs.
