    What did I just watch? I have no idea at all what you were talking about but probably because I have no knowledge at all about this stuff… seems like you still did a good job at explaining according to the others

    Is it possible to turn on the 555 with pulses of 1kHz?I mean I want to connect Vcc of timer to pulses of 1kHz of 5volt.i want to use Astable mode of timer.

    At 8:10, how is that comparator outputs zero(low) and at 8:30 the comparator outputs one(high)? Both have a voltage difference of zero volts therefore output should be zero(low). Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks!
