hey there guys. i've been trying to simplify making a 6 digit countdown circuit. currently i'm using 40110's 1 per digit and it works great, but i'd like to cut it back even further and was wondering if anyone knew of a cmos ic that would be like the 4553 that would drive 3 digits at once but countdown, or could the 4553 countdown instead of up? i've looked at datasheets and from what i've gathered it only counts up. i'm hoping i'm wrong. either way some advice would be great thanks!
