Multivibrators switch back and forth between two states. In the case of a flashing light or blinker this occurs spontaneously, whereas in a flip-flop circuit you switch between the states using push-button switches.
On the following pages you get to know the different multivibrators and how to build them using transistors. You quickly realize the similarities and how you can influence the behavior of the different multivibrators.
In the course of the experiments you further discover modern applications of multivibrators. In order to achieve this you take advantage of integrated circuits. In this way you are capable to implement even more complex solutions.
To get started you need to do a few preparations...
