power supply delayed signal

Hi All,

I just want get two edge signals from 'power on signal' (please see the attachment). One edge should have a delay of 200 ms and second edge should have a delay of 400 ms.

For generating these two edges, can I use simple RC circuit ORed together as shown in the attachment?

Do you have any other good idea istead of this one?

Please help !!!!

Thanking you in advance

Hmm, what are you trying to do with this? Your signal diagram shows two outputs, 1 and 2, but your schematic shows one output only.

The RC portion looks okay to me, but if you tie the outputs together as shown, the output will go high and stay high in 200ms. In other words, the second output will serve no purpose.

You can also use a 555 in monostable mode to get the desired time delay - one 555 per output. More info here: http://www.kpsec.freeuk.com/555timer.htm#monostable.

Thank u elec_mech!!!!

U r right. It is a mistake...

What about the circuit with two outputs....??? ie same circuit without the Oring and diodes.

Will it work?

Thanking you in advance!!

Here, this should pretty much do it for you.

See the attached.

You may need to adjust R1 and R2 somewhat, as capacitors have a fair bit of tolerance - and so do the thresholds of Schmitt trigger inputs of IC's made by various manufacturers. This is just a good starting place.

You didn't say which edge, so this circuit outputs two falling edges; one at 200mS and one at 400mS.
