 Radio-Electronics.Com :: Operational Amplifier Multivibrator Oscillator
Multivibrator oscillators are used in many circuits and they are simple to construct.
Although many multivibrator circuits may be provided using simple logic gates, this circuit has the advantage that it can be used to provide an oscillator that will generate a much higher output than that which could come from a logic circuit running from a 5 volt supply.
In addition to this the multivibrator oscillator circuit is very simple, requiring just one operational amplifier (op amp), three resistors, and a single capacitor.

The output of the multivibrator is buffered by the high input impedance of an emitter follower Q3.

 The Flip Flop
The bi-stable Multivibrator circuit required an input pulse to the left side of the circuit and the load (say a globe) stayed ON when the signal was removed.
A free-running multivibrator is also called an astable multivibrator (meaning is has no stable states) and that is why it flips from one state to the other continuously.
The standard way to draw this type of multivibrator is to show the two capacitors crossing at the centre of the circuit, this also gives the circuit symmetry and makes it easy to recognise.

 Flip-Flops
The bistable multivibrators are called flip-flops and are the basic memory devices used in sequential logic.
Other two-state devices include the astable multivibrator which serves as an oscillator and the monostable multivibrator ("one-shot" multivibrator) which can serve as a pulse source.
The configuration of NAND gate inverters shown is one of many ways to create an astable multivibrator : a two-state device which is not stable in either state.

Conventional multivibrators have only two stages and come in three flavours: astable (where neither state is stable and the circuit oscillates between the two states); monostable (where one state is stable, the other transient).
The 'astable multivibrator' (to give this circuit its 'proper' name was invented in the days of valves and was common with early germanium transistors.

Another type of multivibrator is the astable type.
Astable multivibrator devices have no stable states, instead they continually switch between two unstable states.
The operation is similar to that of the one shot in its unstable state, but the two capacitive coupling networks prevents either inverter from having a stable state.

 Experiment 14: The 555 Astable Timer & the 74123 One-shot Multivibrator   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The 555 Timer is a versatile IC to use, because it acts as a clock whose duty cycle is governed by the external RC circuit that is built into it.
The 74123 Multivibrator is a versatile circuit for the same reasons as the 555 Timer, with the exception that its full cycle is not symmetrical; that is it is not a 50% duty cycle.
Depending on the needs of the designer, the multivibrator and the components chosen should be considered accordingly.

 Multivibrators - Basic Electronic Tutorials
One method of enabling a multivibrator circuit is called edge triggering, where the circuit's data inputs have control only during the time that the enable input is transitioning from one state to another.
We've already seen one example of a monostable multivibrator in use: the pulse detector used within the circuitry of flip-flops, to enable the latch portion for a brief time when the clock input signal transitions from either low to high or high to low.
One-shot multivibrators of both the retriggerable and nonretriggerable variety find wide application in industry for siren actuation and machine sequencing, where an intermittent input signal produces an output signal of a set time.
