The 555 timer IC is a highly versatile device for generating accurate time delay (ranging from microseconds to hours) or oscillations.
IC 555 timer can be used with supply voltages in the range of +5V to +18V and can drive a load of upto 200mA (i.e., it is compatible with both Digital and Linear IC operating modes).
Thus, when the timer is driven in the monostable mode with input pulses longer than the desired output pulse width, the input trigger should effectively be shortened by differentiation (simplest differentiator circuit is a high pass filter).

 The 555 Timer IC
The operation of the 555 timer revolves around the three resistors that form a voltage divider across the power supply, and the two comparators connected to this voltage divider.
The three resistors in the voltage divider all have the same value (5K in the bipolar version of this IC), so the comparator reference voltages are 1/3 and 2/3 of the supply voltage, whatever that may be.
One interesting and very useful feature of the 555 timer in either mode is that the timing interval for either charge or discharge is independent of the supply voltage, V
