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. A free-running multivibrator with a frequency of one-half to one-tenth of the reference frequency would accurately lock to the reference frequency. 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.

This technique was used in early electronic organs, to keep notes of different octaves emitteer in tune. After elapsing the time, it returns to its stable initial state. A multivibrator is an electronic circuit used to implement a variety of simple two-state [1] [2] [3] devices such as relaxation oscillatorstimers and flip-flops.

When triggered by an input pulse, a monostable multivibrator will switch to its unstable position for a period of time, and then return multuvibrator its stable state. Thus, the circuit remains stable in a single state continuously.

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 emittef that one of the transistors is first to switch on. When the circuit is first powered up, neither transistor will be switched on.

Emitter-coupled Monostable Multivibrators – Pulse and Digital Circuits [Book]

For this reason Abraham and Bloch called it a multivibrateur. The circuit is useful for generating single output pulse of adjustable time duration in response to a triggering signal. Mmultivibrator is a predecessor of the Eccles-Jordan trigger [7] which was derived from the circuit a year later.


The two output terminals can be defined at the active devices and have complementary states. If repeated application of the input pulse maintains the circuit in the unstable state, it is called a retriggerable monostable. Thus, the emitter coupled monostable multivibrator whose temperature is accurately compensated against temperature is obtained. It is considered below for the transistor Q1.


This can occur at startup without external intervention, if R and C are both very small. Ratio correction circuit and method for comparison of proportional to absolute temperature signals to bandgap-based signals. Annales de Physique in French.

Switching of state can be done via Set and Reset terminals connected to the bases. Hence, when the circuit is switched on, if Q1 is on, its collector is at 0 V. Q2 collector voltage begins falling; this change transfers through the fully charged C2 to Q1 base and Monotable begins cutting off.

Assume all the capacitors to be discharged ccoupled first. It consists of two amplifying devices transistorsvacuum tubes or other devices cross-coupled by resistors or capacitors.

In the end, only R3 emither the needed input base current. Since it produced a square wavein contrast to the sine wave generated by most other oscillator circuits of the time, its output contained many harmonics above the fundamental frequency, which could be used for calibrating high frequency radio circuits.

As its right-hand negative plate is connected to Q2 base, a maximum negative voltage emittwr V is applied to Q2 base that keeps Q2 firmly off.

Because they do not need to be the same, an asymmetric duty cycle is easily achieved. Q2 begins conducting and this starts the avalanche-like positive feedback process as follows.


Simultaneously, C2 that is fully discharged and even slightly charged to 0. This repeats and forms a free-running oscillator or an astable multivibrator. In the monostable multivibrator, one resistive-capacitive network C 2 -R 3 in Figure 1 is replaced by a resistive network just a monostabl. Now the capacitor discharges towards -V sat. The forward-biased Q2 base-emitter junction fixes the voltage of C1 right-hand plate at 0. Chains of bistable flip-flops provide more predictable division, at the cost of more active elements.

The output voltage momostable 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 multivibrstor resistor Monostabe. For example, if Q2 is on and Set is grounded momentarily, this switches Q2 off, and makes Q1 on.

To approach the needed square waveform, the collector resistors have to be low in resistance. The resistance R3 is chosen small enough to keep Q1 not deeply saturated after C2 is fully charged.

Similarly, Q2 remains on continuously, if it multivbrator to get switched on first. This is a comparator circuit and hence, the output becomes -V sat. An astable multivibrator consists of two amplifying monostabble connected in a positive feedback loop by two capacitive-resistive coupling networks.

During State 2Q2 base-emitter junction is forward-biased and capacitor C1 is “hooked” to ground.
