Morse Code astable Oscillator
Astable or free-running multivibrators have been used in home-built amateur radio equipment for many years. The basic circuit is a two stage amplifier with AC-coupled feedback from output to input. One transistor stage is on ( conducting current ) while the other is off ( not conducting current ) until the stages switch conducting states...

This is a very simple circuit utilising a 555 timer IC to generate square wave of frequency that can be adjusted by a potentiometer.

The formula to calculate the frequency is given by:...
Astable multivibrator circuits
What exactly is a multivibrator? I suppose one definition would be 'a circuit which has several states'. This will do for now, it's quite loose so leaves plenty to the imagination! Conventional multivibrators have only two stages and come in three flavours: astable (where neither state is stable and the circuit oscillates between the two...

The astable multivibrator is a unique form of the relaxation oscillator in which the in-phase feedback is provided by a separate transistor.

Assume one of the transistor, say TR1 become conducting at first. Now, since TR1 is conducting, it`s collector emiter voltage should be ideally zero, but any way, it will be around 0. 1 volt and it`s base emiter voltage is +0. 6v. Now the capacitor c1 will start charging. When the base voltage of TR2 become +. 6 due to the increase in the c2...

The capacitor C charges via R1 and R2 and when the voltage on the capacitor reaches 2/3 of the supply, pin 6 detects this and pin 7 connects to 0v. The capacitor discharges through R2 until its voltage is 1/3 of the supply and pin 2 detects this and turns off pin 7 to repeat the cycle. The scales on the graph are logarithmic so that 21k is approxi

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...
