20 Threads found on edaboard.com: 555 Variable Duty Cycle
I need an oscillator to generate a clock for a project I'm building. From what I've read from data sheets, it seems like I cannot get 50% duty cycle with a 555 timer configured in astable mode. Any suggestions as to alternative ICs?
FYI, I'm looking to generate a 2MHz clock for a logic circuit.

I want to build a function generator by using 555 timer for signal generator and it capable of outputting a square wave with adjustable frequency in the ranges of 1Hz to 100Hz..
If anyone have an idea please let me know...thanks for your cooperation..:D

I don't really see the problem: at 150Hz the period is about 6.67ms. So if your filter has some 65ms time constant, you should be OK. With ony a 62k resistor you need about 1uF of capacitance. That can be even a surface-mount 0603 for voltages of 6V or maybe even 10V.
I am sure you can use a 555 to discriminate between the two (...)

Hello to all !!!!!!!!
I have designed the astable multivibrator using 555 which has been modified for variable frequency and variable duty cycle ranging from 30 to 80% using two diode but problem is with me is i am not getting the desired output of pulses when i am trying to get for 5 kHz freq. but the (...)

What will happen ???!!!!! what do you mean by that ? what do you want to do exactly ? you have a 555 TIMER , if you set it as A stable , it will work and oscillate as well . if you change D.C no thing special will happen . i don't know what is your exact aim .

I don't agree about "unusual". A 555 circuit with feedback from output instead of DISCHG pin can be already found as 50 % duty cycle oscillator in the LMC555 datasheet. The variant with diodes and variable duty cycle is at least frequently used.

if your power source is DC, what you say (variable duty cycle with 555) is OK (for AC you could use a phase control wuth triac).
A power MOSFET (as IRF520 or 6N10 among others) will be better than a bipolar transistor. It has very low ON resistance and very fast switch, so no power consumption. The gate can (...)

Output of comparator is square wave with variable duty cycle and frequency depending on audio signal. Purpose of diode and RC behind it is to give average value of comparator output. RC filters out frequencies above 2Hz and thus the output voltage is lower. In this way only the frequencies below 2Hz can be used for control and they have full (...)

this is my first time here, i need help with my graduation project.
in a part of the project,i'm building a simple DC chopper , chopping 12VDC onto a 24VDC/200mA motor .
the chopping device (switch) i used is IRF540 MOSFET.
the gate control is a simple 555 50% duty cycle variable frequency astable (...)

Hi to all,
I am designing a Humidity sensor circuit using a Humidity sensor from china. Datasheet of that sensor is also in their language:|. But without those knowledge i am designing sensor circuit that I've placed my resistance dependent humidity sensor as variable resistance across 555 timer configuerd as astable multivibrator. Iam able to ge

I need to generate PWM signal for battery powered application to make ON/OFF for a swicth.The frequency is typically 1 second and I need to have a variable duty cycle by means of POT. I did look into 555 and 556 timer circuts and op amp PWM geneartion cicuits . It looks they all consume much current. Since it is (...)

in simple way u can use 2*(555) timer first one as stable the output of first one
trigger second 555 connected as monostable and last one drive output stage
with that connection u can adjust period and pulse width for drive signal

It is a very sweet and easy project ! at first try to generate a variable duty cycle square wave . e.g with 555 .
if you can do it , tell me , i'll illustrate you another step .

i would like to make an frequency generator using a 555 timer chip. The frequency should vary in the range of 100hz to 1kHz with a reasonable duty cycle (20-80%). I am using the circuit below. Varying r2 alone would not do the job because at r2=0 the duty cycle is 100%.
I found out if i started (...)

The circuit is a fully-developed versatile driver for the electrodes (arc welder, I guess). All the components are popular.
It is versatile because you can vary the frequency and duty cycle to the electrodes.
If you wish, you can experiment with just the 555 timer IC driving the mosfet. There are easy ways to adjust the frequency and (...)

I doubt if SG3524 can give 0% to 100% duty cycle adjustment. thjere will be some
You can also try the standard 555 Timer Ic.

Well I am not an expert but I think you can use 555 timer circuit in astable mode to generate the strobe for LED's. Microcontroller really required here?
I am attaching some theory and pspice simulation results which can help you understand the 555 timer operation in astable mode. Even if your are not using 555 go through this to help u (...)

You can use a 555 timer in astable mode. You can find a schematic and calculator here . variable period and duty cycle can be achieved by using variable resistors and capacitors. You may also need to use the CONTROL pin.

Hi, I am working on a similar project:
I have verified that using a isolated power supply for the gate drive circuit will turn the N channel mosfet on and off in a Buck circuit configuration with a 12 volt battery as a load. I configured the gate drive circuit with a 555 time and used a Schmitz
