Hi. Can anyone help me with a 6 bit ring counter circuit? Ive searched the net and only 4 bits are available. Ive tried to add another flip flop but the output is not a ring counter. Can someone help me with this. I will use it to our project. Thanks

Can you post the circuit you have that works?

I tried this circuit and it work but I need a 6 bit ring counter. I tried to add two flip flops but the output is not a ring counter anymore. Could you help me to modify this circuit to have a 6 bit ring counter? Thanks for complying.

It should be quite simple to add any number of flip flops to extend a ring counter. We can't help until you show us the schematic of what you are trying.

I'm building an Amplitude Shift Keying with a 6 bit square wave input using a Flip Flop circuit for my school project. Is this circuit right? Is the Flip Flop circuit right for my 6 bit input? Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

How does ASK relate to a 6 bit ring counter? Can you explain in some detail what you are trying to achieve?

i used the 6 bit ring counter as a digital input. I connect the ring counter to the switch so that I can adjust the square wave signals. Example I want to encode a 101101. I open the 2nd and 5th switch to the ring counter and short the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and the 6th switch to have a digital input of 101101. Is my idea wrong?

You are trying to use the ring counter the wrong way. A ring counter is a kind of shift register - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_counter

You are apparently trying to read the state of a set of switches. There are several ways to do this, but there is not enough information without a schematic.

i have already posted the shematic here. just click it
