    what is Multivibrator?Where we use a binary?

    A multivibrator is another name for oscillator. We use a binary anywhere it is convenient.

    Binary is a math system that also translates into an electronic code, digital.

    Multivibrator is a specific type of digital circuit. Check Wikipedia for information overload.

    Basically there are three kinds of multivibrators,

    1. Monostable Multivibrator - also known as a one shot or a timer.

    2. Astable Multivibrator - The oscillator refered to previously.

    3. Bistable Multivibrator - a set reset flip flop.


    The base circuit is pretty simple for all three, usually they revolve around two inverters, or inverting gates. With the addition of a resistor capacitor 1 and 2 can be created.

    One way to learn more is to take a look at a datasheet for a multi-vibrator integrated circuit (also referred to as a one-shot). You can look for a 74HC123 as well as others that are available.
