The circuit consists of three parts. The first part has an oscillator while the second has mod 16 counter 7493. The oscillator is wired in self-triggered mode, and the potentiometer VR1 is used for speed control of the running lights. That is, frequency can be varied from 21 Hz to less than 1 Hz.The counter outputs A, B and C are decoded by IC3 (the decoder 7442) and the outputs obtained on pins 1 to 9 of this IC.The D output of the counter is used for selecting the LEDs from D1 to D8 or D9 to D16. When D is low D1 to D8 are selected, and when D is high D9 to D16 are selected.For the selection of these LEDs, IC4 (7400) NAND gate is used. Thus, a sequential running effect is produced.
