Switch Debouncing

Posted on Mar 14, 2013

This circuit will remove the transient spikes and contact bounces from a non-latching push button switch. Using a 555 timer as a monostable circuit, it is easy to build a good switch debouncer circuit. There are many circuits for SPDT debouncing, but not many for a normally open, push-to-make press button switch (PBS). The 555 monostable gives an output pulse of around 20 msec with component values shown.

The 555 circuit can be re-triggered if the input is held low longer than the output pulse. To prevent this happening, I have included a further timing circuit comprised of the 1Meg resistor and 47n capacitor. Normally, the 47n capacitor is discharged via
