Part Number: LMC555
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: NE555, TLC555


In LMC555CMMX/NOPB datasheet for achieving 50% duty cycle discharge pin is kept as high and control pin is left open. Any specific reason for doing the same?

And in the same circuit mentioned in the datasheet page no.16, section 9.6, what happens when we connect the control voltage pin to the ground with a capacitor of 0.01 uF and the discharge pin left open? Will it affect the duty ratio specified (i.e, 50%)?

Also, is any spice model is available for LMC555CMMX/NOPB? If not, can we use NE555 for the simulation?
