Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all, great forum here. Hope to learn a lot.

I am looking for a sample LM555 circuit. In simple terms I am looking what I think to be a reverse of the monostable circuits I have seen.

More or less I have a switch that needs to be held down for 1 sec before the circuit is active (pin 3 high on the LM555). Or is there another circuit? I think the 555 would do what I need, just need a sample circuit to bump me in the right direction.

Reseting the circuit I think I can handle, but just need a simple circuit to get me there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could put a push button on the trigger pin to signal a start of a cycle.

That is sort of what I a doing now. The switch needs to be held down for one second and then before pin 3 goes high.

If that makes better sense.

You might want to check into the 556 chip. It's a dual 555 timer. See if you can use one to trigger the other after 3 seconds if the switch is still depressed.
