The NE556 dual monolithic timing circuit is a highly stable controller capable of producing accurate time delays or oscillation. In the time delay mode of op-eration, the time is precisely controlled by one exter-nal resistor and capacitor.
For a stable operation as an oscillator, the free running frequency and the duty cycle are both accurately controlled with two exter-nal resistors and one capacitor. The circuit may be triggered and reset on falling waveforms, and the output structure can source or sink up to 200mA.
Low turn off time.
Maximum operating frequency greater than 500kHz.
Timing from microseconds to hours.
Operates in both astable and monostable modes.
High output current can source or sink 200mA.
Adjustable duty cycle.
Temperature stability of 0.005% per oc.
