To the right of this region, there is no possibility to flip state because the system is monostable lethal.
For equation (1), there are only four possible qualitative states of the injured system's dynamics: (1) monostable, nonlethal, (2) monostable, lethal, (3) bistable, nonlethal, and (4) bistable, lethal.
The single-state characteristic of monostable agents enabled them to better cope with unpredictable environmental perturbations to which they where not evolved to deal with (e.
Summarizing, statistical and dynamical analyses from the proposed experiment suggest a small but significant tendency of better performance by monostable in contrast to bistable agents in the presence of sensorimotor, structural, and mutational perturbations.
Composed of two symmetrically thresholded hysteresis comparators whose outputs are combined by an OR gate, the dual comparator drives a conventional monostable multivibrator which produces a 1 ms pulse when incipient latch-up occurs.
Moreover, particular instances of the subcomponents and methodologies were also known -- avalanche transistor switches, light responsive switches, use of subcarriers in coding pulse trains, leading edge detectors, ring demodulators, monostable multi-vibrator detectors, integration and averaging matched filters, template signal match detectors, correlation d etectors, signal integrators, synchronous detectors and antennas driven by a stepped amplitude input.
Its TRK 52 miniature monostable relay features dimensions as small as competing products in the West.
User configurable monostable and astable modes are easily selected through the external programming port, with the astable mode enabling added triggering controls not supported by other 555 timers.
Limited Tenders are invited for Ic Dgtl Hcms Monostable Mv 74Hc4538 Smd - 2800.
1] monostable circuit provides at its output very short-time pulses, which indicates the input [u.
This arrangement is somewhat similar to a monostable multivibrator with a hold time equivalent to the domain transit time of the device.
At times the monostable turns off the light source, so that it can measure noise.
