    ****PLEASE HELP****** hey guys,i'm supposed to make a 5 bit code converter(counter) from gray code to binary code that counts from 0 to 31 (from 00000 to 11111).I've started by selecting the minterms which the gray code would be high and connected them to nand gates. Example , the MSB would be ''high'' only when one of the minterms from 16 to 31 is ''HIGH''. please explain which IC should i use , is it a decoder or 4-16 demux. thanks guys

    Hello oussama123443

    So. the counter that you want to develop must count in binary Gray code.
    Then decode the outputs of the counter to obtain the natural binary code.

    Could you tell us, please, what Counter or Flip-Flip You would use. ??

    To develop the -binary Gray code- counter with Flip-Flip's You could use the software tool called Boole.Deusto.
    This software tool can find over here:

    Now: to convert back and forth -naturally binary code- to –binary Gray code- you can have a look at this video:
    There are many more videos and documents can search using google.com

    And don't forget that, at the end of the day, there is nothing particularly special about a Gray code counter -- it is simply a finite state machine like any other FSM. In fact, it is particularly simple in that the next state logic depends only on the present state and not on any other inputs.
