Bar-Mode Lights Sequencer

Can drive up to 15 LEDs or LED-clusters, Selectable Bar-length

This circuit, designed on request, allows up to 15 LED clusters to illuminate in bar-mode sequence. LED sequencing will start at power-on and, after reaching the desired output, all the LEDs turn off and sequence restarts. The number of LEDs or clusters forming the bar can be selected by connecting R7 to the appropriate output pin of IC2 or IC3.
