So, let us understand this by considering a negative pulse at the base of transistor Q 1.


This reduces the reverse bias on transistor Q2 and drives it in to saturation. So a single pole double throw switch works perfectly in this situation, with the input connected to ground and the multivibratlr outputs connected to the bases of the transistors. January Learn how and when to remove this template message. We can build this circuit completely with simple components.


This circuit is simply called as Binary. The duration of state 1 low output will be related to the time constant R 2 C 1 as it depends on the charging bistale C1, and the duration of state 2 high output will be related to the time constant R 3 C 2 as it depends on the charging of C2.

As a result, the collector voltage increases, which forward biases the transistor Q 2. Now, the capacitor C2 is fully charged in the previous State 1 to the power supply voltage V with the polarity shown in Figure 1. This is the second stable state of the Multivibrator. It can be used basically for any circuit in where you want manual control over outputs which you want to keep stable states unless you trigger it to change. I personally tested this and it did not work. In each state, one transistor is switched on and the other is switched off.

Then the voltage at the collector of Q1 rises towards Vcc and this rise in voltage is fed to the base of transistor Q2 through resistor R1. For the circuit in Figure 2, in the stable state Q1 is turned off and Q2 is turned on. If we adjust the switch, the outputs for each of the transistors switches to the output state.


However, if the circuit is temporarily held with both bases high, for longer than it takes for both capacitors to charge fully, then the circuit will remain in this stable state, with both bases at 0. A free-running multivibrator with a frequency of one-half to one-tenth of the reference frequency would accurately lock to the reference frequency. How to Build an Bistable Multivibrator Circuit with Transistors In this circuit, we will show how to build a bistable multivibrator circuit with transistors.

So, the time period of the square wave generated at the output is:. Similarly, Q2 remains on continuously, if it happens to get switched on first. Thus the transition time is reduced and distortionless output is obtained.

Bistable Multivibrator (Flip-Flop)

The main difference in the construction of usijg circuit is that the bjstable from the output C 2 of the second transistor to the base B1 of the first transistor is missing and that feedback is obtained now through the resistor R e. In the bistable multivibrator, both resistive-capacitive networks C 1 -R 2 and C 2 -R 3 in Figure 1 are replaced by resistive networks just resistors or direct coupling.

While not fundamental to circuit operation, diodes connected in series with the base or emitter of the transistors are required to prevent the base-emitter junction being driven into reverse breakdown when the supply voltage is in excess of the V eb breakdown voltage, typically around volts for general purpose silicon transistors.

This can be used for many types of circuits including for any type of memory application or storage application.

The same Multivibrators are designed using operational amplifiers and also IC timer circuits, which are discussed in further tutorials.

Operational Amplifiers, 2nd Ed. This is the first stable state of the Multivibrator.


Bistable means that the outputs can be stably either in the HIGH state or the LOW state, without changing unless manually triggered to change to the opposite state. Q1 is firmly saturated in the beginning by the “forcing” C2 charging current added to R3 current. An astable multivibrator consists of two amplifying stages connected in a positive feedback loop by two capacitive-resistive coupling networks.

This drives transistor Q2 further into saturation even if the trigger is removed. Now the capacitor discharges towards -V sat. We will show how to build this circuit below.

This circuit is also called as Schmitt Trigger circuit. When the switch is turned to the right, the base of the second transistor is grounded, allowing no power to the base.

They are also used in Pulse conditioning and sharpening circuits. It continues in that state, unless an external trigger pulse is given. How this circuit works is through the manual control of the SPDT switch. Now this voltage gets applied at the emitter of Q 1.

This will quickly put the circuit into one of the above states, and oscillation will ensue. And if both bases were grounded at the same time, both LEDs would be on. Then the collector voltage of Q2 rises towards Vcc.

Now the transistor Q 1 will be OFF as the base is grounded. The pulse biistable T of a monostable multivibrator is calculated as follows: This rise in voltage is coupled to the input of transistor Q1 and this makes transistor Q1 further saturated.

To approach the needed square waveform, the collector resistors have to be low in resistance.

The output obtained at the collector terminals of Q1 and Q2 are complementary to each other always. In practice, oscillation always occurs for practical values of R and C. It can be powered with as little as about 6V but the LED will not be as bright.
