    hi everyone,

    That computer im building uses a load of 4017 decade counters for timing logic. BUT I have just realised they are synchronus counters. So could i use a load of shift registers cascaded?

    Thanks

    What kind of timing logic? Sounds like you need a bunch of ripple counters to me.

    well it just enables buffers and latch lathes so things work in precise sequence
