Digital Counters. A digital circuit which is used for a counting pulses is known counter. Counter is the widest application of flip-flops. It is a group of flip-flops with a clock signal applied. Counters are of two types.
Also question is, what is an up counter?
A circuit of a 3-bit synchronous up-down counter and a table of its sequence are shown below. Similar to an asynchronous up-down counter, a synchronous up-down counter also has an up-down control input. It is used to control the direction of the counter through a certain sequence.
What do you mean by counter?
a combining form of counter3, used with the meanings “against,” “contrary,” “opposite,” “in opposition or response to” (countermand); “complementary,” “in reciprocation,” “corresponding,” “parallel” (counterfoil; counterbalance); “substitute,” “duplicate” (counterfeit).
What do you mean by binary counter?
Binary Counting. A binary counter can be constructed from J-K flip-flops by taking the output of one cell to the clock input of the next. This produces a binary number equal to the number of cycles of the input clock signal. This device is sometimes called a "ripple through" counter.
