I have built numerous 555 circuits over the years. I recently had to built a Monostable 555 cct. as per this site : http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_6/chpt_8/4.html
The cct. is used in a motor vehicle. When the remote control is pushed to open the doors, it sends positive 12V to this Monostable cct. to initiate it and a 3 Amp Power Transistor pulses the siren momentarily to indicatse "unlocking" by audible means.
The issue I have is that Rt and Ct used to time the output pulse is not short enough. I replaced these components to the smallest values I could get, but the output is still "too long". Teh siren makes a "chooow" sound instead of "chow". Sounmds too unprofessional or after-market.
Any ideas to get a short pulse (nearly a few micro seconds) out of this old 555 cct. ?
