  • Derive expressions for the gate width of both emitter-coupled and collector-coupled monostable multivibrators
  • Understand the effect of temperature on the gate width of the monostable multivibrator
  • Realize the need for a commutating condenser in a monostable multivibrator
  • Realize the application of a monostable multivibrator as a voltage-to-time converter
  • Design monostable multivibrator circuits
