4.Define 555 IC?

The 555 timer is an integrated circuit specifically designed to perform signal generation and timing functions.

5.List the basic blocks of IC 555 timer?

·           A relaxation oscillator

·           RS flip flop

·           Two comparator

·           Discharge transistor.

·

6.List the features of 555 Timer?

·           It has two basic operating modes: monostable and astble

·           It is available in three packages. 8 pin metal can , 8 pin dip, 14 pin dip.

·           It has very high temperature stability.

7.Define duty cycle?

The ratio of high output and low output period is given by a mathematical parameter called duty cycle. It is defined as the ratio of ON Time to total time.

8.Define VCO.

A voltage controlled oscillator is an oscillator circuit in which the frequency of oscillations can be controlled by an externally applied voltage.

9.List the features of 566 VCO.

·           Wide supply voltage range(10-24V)

·           Very linear modulation characteristics

·           High temperature stability

9.        What do u mean by PLL?

A PLL is a basically a closed loop system designed to lock output frequency and phase to the frequency and phase of an input signal.

11.   Define lock range.

When PLL is in lock, it can trap freq changes in the incoming signal. The range of frequencies over which the PLL can maintain lock with the incoming signal is called as lock range.

12. Define capture range.

The range of frequencies over which the PLL can acquire lock with the input signal is called as capture range.

13.   Define pull- in time.

The total time taken by the PLL to establish lock is called pull- in time.

14.   List the applications of 565 PLL.

·           Frequency multiplier

·           Frequency synthesizer
