CHAPTER 7

Astable Multivibrators

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After reading this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Describe the working of collector-coupled and emitter-coupled astable multivibrators
  • Derive the expressions for the frequency of oscillations of astable multivibrators
  • Plot the waveforms at various points in the circuit
  • Design an astable multivibrator
  • Use an astable multivibrator for applications such as voltage to frequency converter and frequency modulator
