    hi,
    in my digital electronics project, i am planning to make a digital ultrasonic rangefinder using start/stop counters. what kind of a counter should i use?
    for being related to my course, it should give digital output. what are your suggestions? thanks..

    It might help us if we knew your understanding of how these rangefinders work, and things like the range you expect to operate over. What degree of precision do you need to be able to measure?

    Have you used logic IC's before? Do you have a preference for the logic family in your project?

    i dont need very high precision, centimeter level would be enough since it it a simple course project :)
    Also, there isnt a preferred logic type. they will shape as i start the project.
