These devices are precision monolithic timing circuits capable of producing accurate time delays or oscillation. In the time-delay or monostable mode of operation, the timed interval is controlled by a single external resistor and capacitor network. In the astable mode of operation, the frequency and duty cycle may be independently controlled with two external resistors and a single external capacitor.
• Timing From Microseconds to Hours
• Astable or Monostable Operation
• Adjustable Duty Cycle
• TTL-Compatible Output Can Sink or Source up to 200 mA
• Functionally Interchangeable With the Signetics NE555, SA555, SE555, SE555C; Have Same Pinout
