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.

These are the Multivibrator circuits using transistors. When the switch is altered, the base of transistor Q 2 is grounded turning it to OFF state. As the input voltage rises, the output remains LOW until the input voltage reaches V 1 where. In practice, oscillation always occurs for practical values of R and C. The transistor Q 1 is given a trigger input at the base through the capacitor C 3 and the transistor Q 2 is given a trigger input at its base through the capacitor C 4.

The circuit stays in any one of the two stable states. As a result, Q2 gets switched off.

Multivibrators find applications in a variety of systems where square waves or timed intervals are required. Operational Amplifiers, 2nd Ed. Retrieved from ” https: 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 bistablee is also called as Schmitt Trigger circuit. January Learn how and when to remove this template message. Now a negative trigger of magnitude V1 is applied to the non-inverting terminal so that the effective signal at this terminal is less than 0.

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 duration of state 1 low output will be related to the time constant R 2 C 1 as it depends on the charging of 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.


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 elements. Switching of state can be done via Set and Reset terminals connected to the bases.

A Bistable Multivibrator has two stable states.


The general solution for a low pass RC circuit is. Thus C2 restores its charge and prepares for the next State C2 when it will act as a time-setting capacitor. The change of switch to position 2, works as a trigger. An astable multivibrator can be synchronized to an external chain of pulses.

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.

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. The output voltage at this point will be V CC and remains constant though the input voltage is further increased.

By applying a negative trigger at the base of transistor Q 1 or by applying a positive trigger pulse at the base of transistor Q 2this stable state is unaltered. Other applications included early television systems, where the various line and frame frequencies were kept synchronized by pulses included in the video signal. 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.


The pulse width T of a monostable multivibrator is calculated as follows: It is considered below for the transistor Q1. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Hence, when the circuit is switched on, if Q1 is on, its collector is at 0 V. It explains that the output values depends upon both the present and the past values of the input. One has high voltage while the other has low voltage, except during the brief transitions from one state to the other.

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. This technique was used in early electronic organs, to keep notes of different octaves accurately in tune. The capacitor discharges through resistor R and charges again to 0. Q2 collector voltage is the output of the circuit in contrast to the astable circuitit has a perfect square waveform since the output is not loaded by the capacitor.

The circuit is useful for generating single output pulse of adjustable time duration in response to a triggering signal.

Chaos 22 Schmitt trigger circuits are used as Amplitude Comparator and Squaring Circuit. It continues in that state, unless an external trigger pulse is given.

As a result, the circuit goes in State 1 described above. The forward-biased Q2 base-emitter junction fixes the voltage of C1 right-hand plate at 0. Its collector voltage begins rising; this change transfers back through the almost empty C1 to Q2 base and makes Q2 conduct more thus sustaining the initial input impact on Q2 base.

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