Section 21. Circuit P11-55A. Objective:Observe the operation of the 10-bit Ring Counter.Identify the faulty device.Submit a screenshot or drawing of your logic analyzer display.Provide an explanation on how this helped you identify the fault.

TWoodroffe 12Figure 3:it remains the same.B. Observation: The logic analyzer shows that all output of the data input register, may have a false reading for the waveform. It was noted that all the Q outputs were the same. I tried a different pattern of connection between the word generator and logic analyzer to this 10-bit Ring Counter. It remained the same regardless to what method was tried to execute the problem. C. Conclusion:In figure 3, I replaced the flip-flop one at a time, but I am having problems to get the right D flip-flop to see if there was a fault in the circuit. However, I was able to replace the non-fault flip-flop, but the results remained the same. So it may or may not have a fault on the circuit because it might be the design of the 10-bit Ring Counter. Another theory could be the outputs not responding properly for registering of the data input register. ConclusionThis lab assignment was successful. I gained the understanding of how to perform sequences of high and low input that closely matched the outputs and waveforms that were produced. The stimulation for the shift register was a simple task in connecting the fundamental of the 5-bit register, 4-bit parallel in/serial out the register, 4-bit Bidirectional Shift Register, and the 10-bit
TWoodroffe 13Ring Counter to verify how they produce their states and waveforms. Doing this lab was helpful for me where I understood how the groups of 1s and 0s are being utilized by the flip-flop and theprocess of shifting between the high to low or via verse. The remainder of the questions were challenging at first because it was a new experience as a hand on activity. I have tried various combinations to connect the multism tools properly to see if there a false in this circuit. However, I was able to create and carefully perform the same circuit but was not showing a different outcome. It took me a two and half days to figure out why not getting the solution to P11-55. The fault in this remaining question is that the outputs were not registering of the data input register to generate a false outcome.
