I was going to start learning how to use a 555 timer as an oscillator, however am greatly confused in the pin configurations example schematics provide me.
To show visually what I mean, A random wikipedia schematic on the main 555 page shows this:
My Eagle CAD software shows this:
However the "actual?" chip package pin diagram is much less confusing:
Can I assume that most of the 555 chips from different manufacturers are interchangable (same pin configuration), however the programs/diagrams have pins that way just to look simpler?
I can always route my own weird ways on the actual chip to match the configuration in the schematics, however that is confusing due to it changing each time.
