    First, I was looking for a tiny 555 kit as i need it for use in a model
    rocket (tube approx .75 dia). I am sure i'd all the parts for such a
    beastie, but i am too lazy to dig thru may various areas of parts.

    Also, can a 555 handle 12 volts? I was sondering if I could whip up a few
    into DC to DC voltage converters. our rocket club got a camper that we are
    converting into a "mission control" and it would be nice to convert the 12DC
    system to other voltages for battery powered stuff (just down conversion,
    nothing higher than 9v

    voltage regulator chip such as:
