  1. Counters Photon Counting Chip (PCC) Picture of fuse using PCC CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  2. Interest • The Difference Engine (1872) was a general purpose mechanical calculator solving mathematical problems with up to 31 digit places of accuracy. • Through the use of punch-cards, the Analytical Engine could be programmed CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  3. Counters General Information • Purpose: Counting events or periods of time or putting events in sequence. • Other functions: Dividing frequency, addressing, and serving as memory units. • Flip-Flops are wired together forming circuits that count. • Self contained counters in ICs are available in TTL and CMOS. CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  4. Ripple Counters • 4-bit counter: D-C-B-A=8s-4s-2s-1s • 8s: Most Significant Digit/Bit (MSD/B) • 1s: Least Significant Digit/Bit (LSD/B) • BCD count from 0000 to 1111 (Decimal 0-15) • Need a counter with 16 different output states • Mod-16 counter: Modulus of the mod-16 counter undergoes 16 different states to complete the counting cycle. • Mod-16 counter uses 4 J-K flip-flops CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  6. 1 1 1 Q Q Q J J J J FF3 FF2 FF4 FF1 CLK CLK CLK 1 1 1 Mod-10 Ripple Counter • The counting sequence is 0000 to 1001 (0-9). • It has 4 places 8s, 4s, 2s, 1s • NAND gate clears all FF to 0 after the 1001 (9) count. • Also called a decade (meaning 10) counter.

  7. Synchronous Counters • A synchronous counter eliminates the accumulated propagation delay of the ripple counter by tying all clock inputs to a common clock signal. • In a synchronous counter each flip-flop must not be allowed to toggle until all flip-flops that precede it are high (set). • The J-K inputs are tied to an AND gate that ANDs the Q outputs from all previous flip-flops. • Synchronous counters can be used to form any modulus counter by using a NAND gate to reset all the flip-flops. The inputs to the logic gate are from the Q outputs of the flip-flops that form the binary representation of the MOD numbers. • Synchronous counters can be used as down counters by taking the output from the Q rather than the Q of each flip-flop. • Synchronous counters can be used in many of the same design applications as ripple counters.

There are seven unique counting states in the particular counter. • Q. What is the difference between a synchronous & an asynchronous counter when they both use clock inputs? • A. Most synchronous counters have parallel clocks. CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  11. 1 1 Q Q J J J FF3 FF1 FF2 CLK CLK 1 1 K K Q Q Q Self-Stopping Counter • Up and down counters can be stopped by using a logic gate. The inputs to J & K at FF1 stops counter and places it in a hold, stopping count at 000. Preset PS C B A Q PS PS Clock Pulses CLK K CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  12. Counters as Frequency Dividers 1 Second Timing Circuit • Counters are used for frequency division. • Uses: Digital clocks & watches, oscilloscopes, and television receivers. • A decade counter can be used as a divide by 10 counter. If a decade counter was used along with a mod-6 counter, the divide by 60 circuit would be designed. Divide by 60 circuit 60 HZ 1 HZ ( 1 pulse per second) CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  13. TTL Counters • 7493 *182 CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  14. Synchronous Up/Down-Counter ICs • The 74192 is a BCD decade up/down synchronous counter. • The 74193 is a 4-bit binary up/down synchronous counter. • These chips have parallel data input leads used to preset the counter. • Two clock inputs are available. 1 UP count & another for a DOWN count. • A terminal count UP and a terminal count DOWN output signal can be used to cascade several ICs together. • Two additional synchronous IC counters are the 74190 and the 74191. • The 74190 is a BCD counter and the 74191 is a 4-bit binary counter. • These chips have a terminal count output and an enable input. With these two connections, cascaded ICs held-off until the proper count. This means that the entire counter can be synchronous. CENT-113 Digital Electronics

  19. 74HC85 Comparator IC • The 74HC/HCT85 are high-speed CMOS devices and are pin compatible with low power Schottky TTL (LSTTL). • The 74HC/HCT85 are 4-bit magnitude comparators that can be expanded to almost any length. They perform comparison of two 4-bit binary, BCD or other monotonic codes and present the three possible magnitude results at the outputs (QA>B, QA=B and QA<B). The 4-bit inputs are weighted (A0 to A3 and B0 to B3), where A3 and B3 are the most significant bits. CENT-113 Digital Electronics
