Can some please help me in desiging a circuit using 2- 7476, 1- 7400, and 2- 7447? I have to build a circuit that counts to 12 and resets to zero. I also have 2- 74LS30 and 2- 7 segements.

Hi,

I moved this over here because it sounded like an assignment.

Yes, we can help, but won't do the work for you. Have you made any progress on this circuit so far? Working it out on paper with logic symbols ( I prefer MIL-STD 806C ) usually lets you see how to hook things up.

Yes I did tried, but It does not work. What is MIL- STD 806C and how can I get it?

Hi,

That is a clooection of symbols for designating logic elements, like AND gates and so on. It just lets you draw the arrangement of logic gates in the circuit.

What did not work?

Keith,

Put up your circuit drawing and the members can review your drawing.

Once any errors are corrected in the drawing, you'll be halfway there.

My drawing is putting the JK's in asyncronous. I used the 74LS30(8 input NAND) to each of the outputs of the JK. Like Q,Q*output. I also used the 74LS00 ( quad 2 input NAND) on the output of the 74LS30. I'm also using another JK to drive the other 7 segement, But when it counts 0-9 the LSB stays to 1. How do I get my MSB to reset after the first cycle? 0-9 and then 0-1.

Hi,

Bet we could tell if we had a schematic to look at.
