Abstract

Two or more flip-flops are cascaded in counters. n-bit counter requires n flip-flops. The output states of the flip-flops of counters change for a pre-determined number of count sequences. The operation of asynchronous and synchronous counters is explained. The s and decoders for counters is also explained. Cascading counters for realizing higher modulus counters is explained and illustrated with examples. The application of cascading counters for digital clock is presented. The design of Mod-6 binary counter and Mod-6 Gray code counter is illustrated with examples.
