How to design a 555 Square Wave Generator (electronic circuit)?

You can easily design the 555 Square Wave Generator circuit by practicing the exercises given below. Here you can design and simulate your own electronic circuits with this Online Circuit Designer and Simulator.


Circuit Description:

This is a simple square wave oscillator using a 555 timer chip.

A timing interval starts when the trigger input ("tr") goes lower than 1/3 Vin, or 3.33V. When this happens, the 555 output goes high, and the 555 waits for the threshold input ("th") to reach 2/3 Vin, or 6.67V. As the capacitor charges, the threshold input slowly rises until it reaches the required level. Then, the timing interval ends, the output goes low, and the capacitor is discharged through the "dis" input.

When the capacitor is discharged enough so that the trigger reaches 3.33V, then a new timing interval begins. The end result is a square wave. -- Credits: Mr. Paul Falstad.

Why the trigger reaches 3.33V, then a new timing interval begins?

Hello,

I'm Bambang haryanto from indonesia with no electronic background.

I need your help to plan electronic circuit based on timer 555 IC to generate pulse 3.5v, width 100msec from input trigger 0.5v, 5 msec.

If you could help me to prepare ready for use that electronic circuit im very thankfull.

Thank you.
