Two Stupid Questions

Not open for further replies.
I need answers to these two stupid questions:

#1-How can I use a CMOS-level output (logic HI) to trigger a 555 timer for 1 hour (delay), which in turn triggers another 555 timer for 1 minute (alarm)? (Circuit needed!)

#2-Does anyone have a non-rechargeable battery-backup circuit for 12-volts? Back-up MUST occur within 40 nS of AC Mains failure. Injection time is based on 74AHCT00 series CMOS requirements.


p.s. Please forgive me for double-posting, but I need more help.

the web has more than one web site with a javascript simulator for the 555 timer any good search should turn one up, as for battery backup what's wrong with with with a battery / diode on the supply rail?
