Abstract : A study was made to determine the limits to which the frequency of astable multivibrators could be stabilized against temperature and power-supply voltage variations so that they could be used as a time base in electric time fuzes and programmers. The temperature range was -55 to +75 C, and the voltage variation was =20 percent. The frequency was about 100 cps. Four different circuits are developed. One circuit yielded =0.06 percent frequency stability over the temperature and voltage range. (Author)
