Low Cost Pulse Generator circuit
This pulse generator produces square pulses from 1Hz to 100KHz with adjustable pulse width of nearly 0-100%. The generator is powered with a voltage of 5-15V and is therefore suitable for both TTL and CMOS circuits. If you want to measure the response of an amplifier or give timing pulses to a variable frequency digital circuit or drive a pulse...
Before power is applied, the input and output are at ground potential and capacitor C is discharged. On power-on, the output goes high (Vdd) and C charges through R until V is reached; the output then goes low (Vss). C is now discharged through R until Vn is reached. The output then goes high and charges C towards VP through R. Thus input A...

The 4047 is configured as a free-running, astable- multivibrator (oscillator) circuit. That configuration, offers three different outputs. The output pulses at the Q and Q output (pins 10 and 11, respectively) are the same as in the previous two circuits. The third output at pin 13 pulses twice as often as the outputs at 10 and 11. So, the...

This astable will trigger itself and run free as a multivibrator. The external capacitor charges through RA and RB and discharges through R8 only. Thus, the duty cycle is set by the ratio of these two resistors, and the capacitor charges and discharges between 1/3 Vs and 2/3 Vs.
The power bandwidth of the HA-5147 extends the circuit"s frequency range to approximately 500 kHz. R, can be made adjustable to vary the frequency ifdesired. Any timing errors because of Vas or hu., have been minimized by the precision characteristics of the HA-5147. Dl and D2, if used, should be matched to prevent additional timing...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...

In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
