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.

During State 1Q2 base-emitter junction is reverse-biased and capacitor C1 bistablee “unhooked” from ground. The capacitors C 1 and C 2 are also known as Speed-up Capacitorsas they reduce the transition timewhich means the time taken for the transfer of conduction from one transistor to the other. This Multivibrator is also known as Flip-flop. An astable multivibrator can be synchronized to an external chain of pulses.

Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. 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.

The circuit has two astable unstable states that change alternatively with maximum transition rate because of the “accelerating” positive feedback. At the same time, the other empty capacitor quickly charges thus restoring its charge the first capacitor acts as a time-setting capacitor and the second prepares to play this role in the next state.

The output voltage has a shape that approximates a square waveform. This will quickly bistablf the circuit into one of the above states, and oscillation will ensue.


As a result, Q2 gets switched off. The circuit of Schmitt trigger using BJT is as shown below.

Toward the emergence of a concepts”. Thus C1 restores its charge and prepares for the next State 1 when it bizs act again as a time-setting capacitor An astable multivibrator consists of two amplifying stages connected in a positive feedback loop by two capacitive-resistive coupling networks. As the input voltage rises, the output remains LOW until the input voltage reaches V 1 where. This latch circuit is similar to an astable multivibrator, except that there is no charge or discharge time, due to the absence of capacitors.

To approach the needed square waveform, the collector resistors have to be low in resistance. The general solution for a low pass RC circuit is. The two output terminals can be defined at the active devices and have complementary states.

The voltage at the non-inverting terminal will be greater than the voltage at the inverting terminal of the op-amp. However, this means that at this stage they will both have high base voltages and therefore a tendency to switch on, and inevitable slight asymmetries will mean biae one of the transistors is first to switch on.

Now the transistor Q 1 will be OFF as the base is grounded. The output waveforms at the collectors of Q 1 and Q 2 along with the trigger inputs given at the bases of Q W and Q 2 are shown in the following figures.

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 vias. In practice, oscillation always occurs for practical values of R and C.

These are the Multivibrator circuits using transistors. This section does not cite any sources.


The diode D1 clamps the capacitor to 0. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. So, multivibrtaor time period of the square wave generated at the output is:.

The Principles of Known Circuits”. This is the other stable state. The output voltage at this point will be V CC and remains constant though the input voltage is further increased. 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 the op-amp.

Retrieved from ” https: The resistance R3 is chosen small enough to keep Q1 not deeply saturated after C2 is fully charged.

Pulse And Digital Circuits. 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. If the voltage is already greater than V 1then it remains there until the input voltage reaches V 2which is a low level transition.

The transfer characteristics of electronic circuits exhibit a loop called as Hysteresis. It is triggered by zero or negative input signal applied to Q2 base with the same success it can be triggered by applying a positive input signal through a resistor to Q1 base. Now the capacitor discharges towards -V sat.
