There are so many things that IC555 could apply to that this question almost makes no sense. However, the most likely answer is that IC555 refers to the NE555 / LM555 integrated circuit timer chip. This very popular chip can, with about five external components, easily be used to make square waves anywhere from a megahertz down to less than a hertz. A slight rearrangement of components will change it to an single pulse generator. And it runs on any clean DC voltage from about 5 to about 18 volts.

What is IC555 timer in astable multivibrator?

The 555 multvibrator chip can be operated in monostable mode (one pulse at a time) Or in Astable mode (retriggers itself in freerun mode) This IC puts out a nice clean square wave . The output of this chip is capable of driving a small speaker.

Is IC555 is an ac device or dc device?

it is DC powered, but can generate sawtooth or triangular wave AC if wired up properly. it cannot generate sine wave AC, although with an opamp wave shaping circuit the triangular AC waveform can be reshaped to a rough approximation of a sine wave.
