    What's bouncing and how does an anti-bouncing circuit work?

    hi there, please help me..

    please tell me how do this circuit work as anti bouncing circuit?

    what is the meaning of bouncing? for example if the switch is a push button, if we push the push button once, the output will indicate that we push it severe time, is it called bouncing?

    while we use the capacitor there, if the switch is off, the capacitor will charging, right? and while we push the switch button, and for example we push it for 1 minute, then the capacitor will be discharging, how long is the output pulse? is it 1 minute too? or it just as long as the capacitor is discharge itself?

    A simple hardware debounce circuit for a momentary N.O. push-button switch is show in Figure 2. As you can see, it uses an RC time constant to swamp out the bounce. If you multiply the resistance value by the capacitance value you get the RC time constant. You pick R and C so that RC is longer than the expected bounce time. An RC value of about 0.1 seconds is typical. Note the use of a buffer after the switch to produce a sharp high-to-low transition. And remember that the time delay also means that you have to wait before you push the switch again. If you press it again too soon it will not generate another signal.

    anti-bouncing

    bouncing is due to noise generated when a mechanical switch is turned on or off.....
