    It's still a counter, it just doesn't cover the full-count. If the device ends up in state 11 (by a glitch) then it just resets.

    Thank you.

    Okay. That means full count could be from 00, 01, 10, 11, but it doesn't cover the last value. By the way, what kind of glitch that could be?

    Best regards

    ESD is one way that a circuit could end up in an invalid/unused state. Typically you want these unused states to simply transition back to reset (00).

    Hi

    Please have a look on the attachment. Please check if the part (a) is correct, and please answer the questions related to part (b) so that I can proceed to implement the function. Here is the scan from the solution manual (to someone who doesn't know, it has been found that mostly solution manual gives wrong solution). Thank you very much.

    Regards
    PG

    Part a is correct.

    Your assessments are correct. When we use the summing symbol Σ, we refer to the SoP form, whereas the multiplication symbol Π, refers to the PoS form.

    I'm sorry to ask this again. So, is it really so, F'(A,B,C,D)=Ʃ(3,8,12,15), for the the function F in the attachment. Thanks.

    Best regards

    Yes, F'=Σ(3,8,12,15), for part b.
