Digital Logic Circuit. Analysis & Design. 王 军. 王晓东. 6.2 TOUNTER. A counter consists of a register and the associated logic. A 4-bit binary counter 74161. CLOCK: synchronous counting input. CLR’ : asynchronous clear (active low). Load’ : synchronous load (active low).
Analysis & Design
A 4-bit binary counter 74161.
Section 1 Introduction and Guidance
a. Introduction: Counters may be synchronous or asynchronous and may be base 10 or 16 or else. Most synchronous counters have parallel loads; they may be preset to a value, using the load signal and an input line for each bit. We will have to understand them well and use them skillfully. The purpose of this experiment is to make students master the designing method of a base-60 counter and consolidate the ability of using seven segment displays.
b. Guidance: Counters are commercial medium-scale integrated circuits. Design a counter that goes from 0 to 59 and display the count on the two seven segment displays.
To implement more complex problems, we definitely choose corresponding chips and gates. Take the following available resources to finish the experiment.
1. SAC-DS4 LOGIC LAB
2. ALTERA MAX+PLUS II
3. TTL chips: 74160, 74138,74373,7448 and 7473
Find the pin layouts of the chips availed of above.
