  Article Content


An astable multivibrator is an electronic circuit that has two states, neither one which is stable. The circuit therefore behaves as an oscillator. The time spent in each state is usually controlled by the charging (or discharging) of a capacitor through a resistor.

See also: bistable multivibrator, monostable multivibrator.
