The timer chip I used is the CMOS LMC555 because it’s a lot faster than bipolar counterpart such as 15 ns rise and fall times and can oscillate up to 3 MHz @ 5V. Of course you can use bipolar 555 timer as well.
About the circuit:
The circuit consist of 2 classical yet popular configurations; The master wired as “astable multibivrator” and the slave as “one shot” monostable.
