Lab experiment date: October 20,2010 Name: Simran Ahuja Lab Day: Wednesday Lab time: 1:30pm Lab instructor: Poornima Lab number: 9 Title of experiment: Digital Counters using Macrofunctions Write a technical response to each of these questions. Define the period T of a waveform. The period is the duration of one cycle in a repeating event, so the period is the reciprocal of the frequency. Define the frequency of a waveform. The frequency of a waveform is the number of cycles that is completed each second. It is measured in Hertz (Hz). If the Period of waveform 2 is four times longer than the Period of waveform 1, what is the frequency of waveform 2 relative to waveform 1? The frequency of waveform 2 would have for more occurrences and cycles than waveform 1 If a decoder output goes HIGH for one state of a MOD N counter, what is the frequency of the decoder output? The frequency is HIGH for the decoder output. How many clocks does it take for the most significant bit of a MOD N counter to

Unformatted text preview: complete one cycle? It takes N clocks to counter one cycle. What is the frequency of the most significant bit of a MOD N counter? The frequency of the most significant bit of a MOD N is HIGH. What are glitches? A minor malfunction, mishap, or technical problem is called glitches . Are all four outputs of a MOD 10 BCD counter periodic? Yes Is the frequency of each Q output of a MOD 10 counter one half of the frequency of next lower order bit? Why? Yes it is half of frequency of the next lower order bit. Station cleanup. Instructor check off ______________ Page 1 of 2 When you cascade a mod N counter to a mod M counter, what is the modulus of the entire cascaded counter? The modulus is MN of the entire counter . What is the frequency of the most significant output bit? The frequency is HIGH for the significant bit. Station cleanup. Instructor check off ______________ Page 2 of 2...
