A building block in which the output is either High or Low. There are three foms of multivibrator: Monostable, bi-stable and astable. The monostable has only one stable state, the bi-stable has two stable states and the astable is free-running (no stable states).

Multivibrators are used in digital computer for computation in binary notation.
