The 8-pin timer must be one of the most useful ICs ever made and it is used in many projects. With just a few external components it can be used to build many circuits, not all of them involve timing! A popular version is the NE and this is suitable in most cases where a ' timer' is specified. Low power versions, such as the ICM, are available with the same pin arrangement but their maximum output current is much lower and they should only be used when specified to increase battery life.

The timer IC is an integrated circuit chip used in a variety of timer , delay, pulse generation, and oscillator applications. Derivatives provide two or four timing circuits in one package. Numerous companies have made the original bipolar timers and similar low-power CMOS timers too. As of [update] , it was estimated that 1 billion units were manufactured every year. He designed an oscillator for PLLs such that the frequency did not depend on the power supply voltage or temperature.
Signetics subsequently laid off half of its employees due to the recession , and development on the PLL was thus frozen. Other engineers argued the product could be built from existing parts; however, the marketing manager approved the idea.
The first design for the was reviewed in the summer of Assessed to be without error, it proceeded to layout design. A few days later, Camenzind got the idea of using a direct resistance instead of a constant current source finding later that it worked. The change decreased the required 9 pins to 8 so the IC could be fit in an 8-pin package instead of a pin package. Depending on the manufacturer, the standard package includes 25 transistors , 2 diodes and 15 resistors on a silicon chip installed in an 8-pin dual in-line package DIP These were available in both high-reliability metal can T package and inexpensive epoxy plastic V package packages.
The internal block diagram and schematic of the timer are highlighted with the same color across all three drawings to clarify how the chip is implemented: . The pinout of the 8-pin timer and pin dual timer are shown in the following table. The two timers inside the are split across two columns. Pinout of single timer 8 pins  .
Pinout of dual timer 14 pins conceptually two timers  . In astable configuration, the timer puts out a continuous stream of rectangular pulses having a specific frequency. In this configuration, the control pin is not used, thus it is connected to ground through a 10 nF decoupling capacitor to shunt electrical noise. Consequently, the trigger pin causes the output to go high and the internal discharge transistor to go to cut-off mode.
At this instance, the threshold pin causes the output to go low and the internal discharge transistor to go into saturation mode. And the cycle repeats. In the first pulse, the capacitor charges from zero to two-thirds of the supply voltage, however, in later pulses, it only charges from one-third to two-thirds of the supply voltage.
Consequently, the first pulse have a longer high time interval compared to later pulses. This is shown in the following equations. To have an output high time shorter than the low time i. This bypasses R 2 during the high part of the cycle so that the high interval depends only on R 1 and C, with an adjustment based the voltage drop across the diode. The low time will be the same as above, 0. With the bypass diode, the high time is. The equation reduces to the expected 0.
Some manufacturers' parts will hold the output state to what it was when RESET is taken low, others will send the output either high or low. The output pulse width can be lengthened or shortened to the need of the specific application by adjusting the values of R and C. Assume initially the output of the monostable is zero, the output of flip-flop Q bar is 1 so that the discharging transistor is on and voltage across capacitor is zero.
Now the capacitor charges towards supply voltage Vcc. When the trigger input is applied at trigger pin the output of lower comparator is 0 and upper comparator is 0. The output of flip-flop remains unchanged therefore the output is 0. The cycle repeats continuously. The charging and discharging of capacitor depends on the time constant RC. While using the timer IC in monostable mode, the main disadvantage is that the time span between any two triggering pulses must be greater than the RC time constant.
Example: ignoring switch contact bouncing. In bistable mode, the timer acts as a SR flip-flop. The trigger and reset inputs pins 2 and 4 respectively on a are held high via pull-up resistors while the threshold input pin 6 is grounded. Thus configured, pulling the trigger momentarily to ground acts as a 'set' and transitions the output pin pin 3 to V CC high state. Pulling the reset input to ground acts as a 'reset' and transitions the output pin to ground low state. No timing capacitors are required in a bistable configuration.
Pin 7 discharge is left unconnected, or may be used as an open-collector output. A timer can be used to create a schmitt trigger inverter gate which converts a noisy input into a clean digital output.
The input signal should be connected through a series capacitor which then connects to the trigger and threshold pins. The reset pin is tied to V CC. In , the was available in through-hole packages as DIP-8 2.
In , the dual timer was available in through-hole packages as DIP 2. These specifications apply to the bipolar NE Other timers can have different specifications depending on the grade industrial, military, medical, etc. These values should be considered "ball park" values; the current official datasheet from the exact manufacturer of each chip should be consulted instead for parameter limitation recommendations.
Numerous companies have manufactured one or more variants of the , , timers over the past decades as many different part numbers. The following is a partial list:. The dual version is called It features two complete timers in a 14 pin package, only the two power supply pins are shared between the two timers. The quad version is called It has four reduced-functionality timers in a 16 pin package four complete timer circuits would have required 26 pins.
Currently the is not manufactured by any major chip companies possibly not by any companies , thus the should be treated as obsolete. Parts are still available from a limited number of sellers as " new old stock " N.
Partial list of differences between and chips: . The Apple II microcomputer used a quad timer in monostable or "one-shot" mode to interface up to four "game paddles" or two joysticks to the host computer. The center wiper pin of the potentiometer was connected to an Axis wire in the cord and one end of the potentiometer was connected to the 5 Volt wire in the cord. The joystick potentiometer acted as a variable resistor in the RC network. A wide pulse represented the full-right joystick position, for example, while a narrow pulse represented the full-left joystick position.
