Its collector voltage begins rising; this change transfers back through the almost empty C1 to Q2 base and makes Q2 conduct more thus sustaining the initial input monostabe on Q2 base.

The astable or free running multivibrator continuously switching from one multivibraotrs to the ,ultivibrators and back to the first state. In the charging capacitor equation above, substituting:. Multivibrator circuits are widely used in storing numbers, counting of pulses, synchronization of arithmetic operations and so on.

If V C is the voltage across the capacitor and from the graph, the time period of the wave formed at capacitor and the output would match, then the time period could be calculated in this way:.

Other names of monostable multivibrator are delay multivibrator and mutivibrators. This page was last edited on 20 Novemberat This is a comparator circuit and hence, the output becomes -V sat. The resistance R3 is chosen small enough to keep Q1 not deeply saturated after C2 is fully charged. 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.


Simultaneously, C2 that is fully discharged and even slightly charged to 0. Learn how your comment data is processed. This configuration requires application of two triggers to return the circuit to its original state.

The output voltage of the switched-off transistor Q1 changes exponentially from low to high since this relatively high resistive output is loaded by a low impedance load capacitor C1. Thus C2 restores its charge and prepares for the next State C2 when it will act as a time-setting capacitor. The output voltage of the switched-on transistor Q1 changes rapidly from high to low since this low-resistive output is loaded by a high impedance load the series connected capacitor C1 and the high-resistive base resistor R2.

In the monostable configuration, only one of the transistors requires protection. It has two stable states. One has high voltage while the other has low voltage, except during the brief transitions from one multivibrxtors to the other.

When one transistor is ON the other transistor is OFF and in nultivibrators way they continuously switch to and fro at a rate depending on RC time constant in circuit. This latch circuit is similar to an astable multivibrator, except that there is no charge or discharge time, due to the absence of capacitors.


It can remain in either of these two states unless an external trigger pulse switches it form one state to the other. How long this takes is half our multivibrator switching time the other half comes from C1. Since the circuit vibrates once for a trigger, it is called a uni-vibrator or monostable multivibrator.


The Principles of Known Circuits”. An astable multivibrator can be synchronized to an external chain of pulses.

It supplies a single out put pulse of desired duration for every input trigger pulse. It has no energy storing element.

multivibrators:astable,monostable and bistable with applications

The general solution for a low pass RC circuit is. Bistable Multivibrator Figure-4 depicts circuit used for bistable multivibrator.

The name mutivibrator designates a group of the circuits widely applied for switching as shift registers or temporary memories and as square were timing oscillator or clocks. In this circuit none of the two transistors reach at stable state. Your email address will not be published.

However, this means bistsble at this stage they will both have high base voltages and therefore a tendency to switch on, and inevitable slight asymmetries will mean that one of the transistors is first to switch on.
