Now that we have flip-flops for memory, we can start to design more interesting circuits. The first circuit we’ll design is an asynchronous counter called a ripple counter. Defn: Counter - a sequential circuit that goes through a set of given states on successive clock cycles. Ripple Counters

Let’s assume we want a 2-bit ripple counter that counts up, i.e., 00, 01, 10, 11, 00. What should the timing diagram look like for the outputs of this counter? T 0 Count=(0,0) Clk T 1 , (0,1) T 2 , (1,0) T 3 , (1,1) T 4 , (0,0) Q 0 Q 1 Q 0 changes on every leading edge of clock pulse. Q 1 on every trailing edge of Q 0 ; Q 1 on every leading edge of Q 0 .
