 # 555 as an astable multivibrator

You can use this calculator in two ways:
• to analyze multivibrator circuit you need to fill all the fields within the top-left cell and click [Compute timings] button
• to synthesize the multivibrator circuit you need to fill all the fields within the top-right cell (chosing adequate units and parameters) and click the [Compute elements] button
NOTE: duty cycle (DC) must be > 50%!
