    Hi guys, my knowledge on circuits is quite basic and I haven't touched circuits in quite awhile so sorry in advance.

    I have a pulse signal set up it is +10V for 4.5 seconds, then -10V for 5 seconds and then 0V for 17 seconds, repeating.

    What I want to do is have a 5 second delay to this input, keeping the exact same pulse. I've done a tiny bit of research into delay on timers, and most of them use diodes which to my understanding will work only for the one polarity.

    What would be the best way to do this?

    Thanks!

    What is providing the pulse signal?

    If it is a micro-controller, you will do it by SW programming.

    If it is analog circuit, share the circuit with us.

    Do you want the 5 seconds delay only once at the start up or everytime? If it is everytime, it is equivalent to have 17s+5s at the end.

    The pulse signal is provided by a micro-controller. The problem is, I only have one programmable output, where I need one output to not be delayed, and one to be delayed by the 5 seconds.

    The delay is everytime, I'll research into adding that system at the end.

    Thanks.

    I'm a little confused, why is it 17s + 5s? Why is it not exp(-5s)?

    Also, I assume a controller can do this fairly easily?
