A multivibrator is a circuit that has two stable states. Each stable state is represented by a voltage e.g 0Volts and 5 volts. The astable variety is when the output. Multivibrator circuits are basically three types- monostable, bistable, astable. Find an examples of each circuit using BJT, logic gates and timer IC. The name mutivibrator designates a group of the circuits widely applied for switching as shift registers or temporary memories and as square.

The first trigger causes conducting transistor to cut-off mode and second trigger causes it back to conducting mode. Pulse And Digital Circuits.

Simultaneously, C2 that is fully discharged and even slightly charged to 0. Each amplifier stage provides phase shift of degree in midband. Bistable Multivibrator Figure-4 depicts circuit used for bistable multivibrator. The time now is The circuit is useful for generating single output pulse of adjustable time duration in response to a konostable signal.

Digital astbale appears to have measured voltages lower than expected. It is considered below for the transistor Q1. Heat sinks, Part 2: Toward the emergence of a concepts”. As Q2 base-emitter junction is reverse-biased, it does not conduct, so all the current from R2 goes into C1.

Synthesized tuning, Part 2: In this way it oscillates and generates pulses. In this circuit, both coupling networks provide DC coupling and no energy storage multivvibrators is used.

Thus C2 restores its charge and prepares for the next State C2 when it will act as a time-setting capacitor. In this configuration, both coupling networks provide AC coupling through coupling capacitors.



During State 2Q2 base-emitter junction is forward-biased and capacitor C1 is “hooked” to ground. As its left-hand negative plate is connected to Q1 base, a maximum negative voltage – V is applied to Q1 base that keeps Q1 firmly off.

The pulse width T of a monostable multivibrator is calculated as follows: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Thus, the circuit remains stable in a single state continuously. The duration of state 1 low output will be related to the time constant R 2 C 1 as it depends on the charging of C1, and the duration of state 2 high output will be related to the time constant R 3 C 2 as it depends on the charging of C2.

Thus, Set is used to “set” Q1 on, and Reset is used to “reset” it to off state. In the monostable configuration, only one of the transistors requires protection. The diode D1 clamps the capacitor to 0. Thus the initial input change circulates bisgable the feedback loop and grows in myltivibrators avalanche-like manner until finally Q1 switches off and Q2 switches on.

In the beginning, the capacitor C1 is fully charged in the previous State 2 to the power supply voltage V with the polarity shown in Figure 1.

multivibrators:astable,monostable and bistable with applications

Multivibrators find applications in a variety of systems where square waves or timed intervals are required. In this asfable, a triggering signal is required to induce transition from stable to quasi stable state. Difference between astable monostable and bistable multivibrator Posted by: CS1 French-language sources fr Pages with citations lacking titles All articles with failed verification Articles with failed verification from December Articles with failed verification from February Articles needing additional astahle from January All articles needing additional references Commons category link is on Wikidata.


It can be switched to quasi stable state by an external trigger but it returns to the stable condition after delay time which is determined by the components of circuit. PNP transistor not working 2. The Principles of Known Circuits”. This circuit does not oscillate. Other applications included early television systems, where the various line and frame frequencies were kept synchronized by pulses included in the video signal. Dec 242: A single pair of active devices can be used to divide a reference by a large ratio, however, the stability of the technique is poor owing to the variability of the power supply and the circuit elements.

Astable vs Monostable vs Bistable Multivibrator types

Choosing IC with EN signal 2. As a result, the circuit goes in State 1 described above. If repeated application ,onostable the input pulse maintains the circuit in the unstable state, it is called a retriggerable monostable. It is implemented by the coupling capacitors that instantly transfer voltage changes because the voltage across a capacitor cannot suddenly change.
