What Is a Multivibrator And Types Of Multivibrators

  What is a Multivibrator? A multivibrator is an electronic circuit that rapidly switches because of positive feedback between multiple states. The switch's output is harmonic. Three types of multivibrator circuits are used in industry today: astable, monostable, and bistable. Signetics developed the 555 timer in 1971. This common multivibrator application is an integrated circuit and remains in production today. It operates in bistable, astable, or monostable modes based on how it is connected and how the circuit's external components are arranged. The timer is used in a number of applications today, including quartz watches, AM radio receivers, cell phones, pagers, audio-frequency equipment, music synthesizers, and GPS wireless receivers and transmitters. Types of Multi-Vibrators a. Monostable Multi-vibrator: A monostable multivibrator is the type of multivibrator circuit whose output is in only one stable state. It is also known as the one-shot multivibrator. In a monostable
