    NOTES

    • When the counter reaches "9", the Carry output goes low, then returns high whem the counter rolls over to "0". This output should be connected to the Clock input of the next counter if more digits are needed. This method of cascading is called ASYNCHRONOUS.
    • It can count up to a speed of 2 MHz with a 5v supply.

    APPLICATIONS:

    • Counting events
    • People Counter
    • Clock, stopwatch
    • Measuring circuits.
