    I am looking for a dip counter that can count up to 8 (0-7), but I don't know exactly what to look for. I think the NTE4022B would do the job nicely, but I don't know for sure.

    I really want to make sure I get the right chip for my little project, so do any of you guys know any good, simple, inexpensive 8 counters?

    There are many 4-bit counters available which can be made to count to 8 and stop or reset. The generic 4022 will be fine as long as you don't need to count much above about 1MHz maximum count frequency.

    Ok, thank you crutschow! If If my frequency understanding is right, 1MHz should be more than enough. Thanks again!
