The bistable multivibrator has two absolutely stable states. It will remain in Thus diode D​2​ is more reverse-biased compared to diode D1. When the positive. BISTABLE MULTIVIBRATOR CIRCUITS The two types of bistable multivibrator circuits considered here are fixed-bias bistable and self-bias bistable. SELF-BIAS BISTABLE MULTIVIBRATORS In a self-bias bistable multivibrator, the negative VBB source can be removed by including an emitter resistor RE.

As a result, the circuit goes in State 1 described above. This is a comparator circuit and hence, vixed output becomes -V sat. The change of switch to position 2, works as a trigger. A free-running multivibrator with a frequency of one-half to one-tenth of the reference frequency would accurately lock to the reference frequency.

In the monostable multivibrator, one resistive-capacitive network C 2 -R 3 in Figure 1 is replaced by a resistive bisyable just a resistor. January Learn how and when to remove this template message.

mulltivibrator If the voltage is already greater than V 1then it remains there until the input voltage reaches V 2which is a low level transition. When the switch is altered, the base of transistor Q 2 is grounded turning it to OFF state.

Mulhivibrator Multivibrator is also known as Flip-flop. The figure below shows the circuit diagram of a fixed-bias binary. The pulse width T of a monostable multivibrator is calculated as follows: This prevents unwanted frequency switching in Schmitt trigger circuits. Accordingly, one fully charged capacitor discharges reverse charges slowly thus converting the time into an exponentially changing voltage.

Because they do not need to be the same, an asymmetric duty cycle is easily achieved. As a result, Q2 gets switched off. Simultaneously, C2 that is fully discharged and even slightly charged to bistxble. Retrieved from ” https: Q2 collector voltage begins falling; this change transfers through the fully charged Multiivibrator to Q1 base and Q1 begins cutting off.

This can occur at startup without external intervention, if R and C are both very small.

Bistabel section does not cite any sources. The circuit stays in any one of the two stable states. If repeated application of the input pulse maintains the circuit in the unstable state, it is called a retriggerable monostable.

The resistance R3 is chosen small enough to keep Q1 not deeply saturated after C2 is fully charged.

This circuit is called as the Regenerative circuit for this has a positive feedback and no Phase inversion. Thus, Set is used to “set” Q1 on, and Reset is used to “reset” it to off state.


The width of the output pulse depends only on external components connected to the op-amp. This will quickly put the circuit into one of the above states, and oscillation will ensue.

It explains that the output values depends upon both the present and the past values of the input. Q1 is on and connects the left-hand positive plate of C1 to ground.

The voltage at inverting terminal will be greater than the voltage at the non-inverting terminal of multivibraror op-amp. Hence, when the circuit is switched on, if Q1 is on, its collector is at 0 V. During State 1Q2 base-emitter junction is reverse-biased and capacitor C1 is “unhooked” from ground.

The circuit is usually drawn in a symmetric form as a cross-coupled pair. Q2 is on and connects the right-hand positive plate of C2 to ground. The output voltage at this point will be V CC and remains constant though the input voltage is further increased.
