Counter ICs

A counter IC is a logic device made up of a series of flip-flops connected in cascade. They are commonly used in digital circuits to store or display the number of times a specific process has happened, commonly in relation to a clock signal. Browse our extensive range of counter ICs below to find the right one to suit your needs.

What is a counter IC?

A counter IC is a device which can store and display the number of times a certain event has happened, usually in relation to a clock signal. The device’s output is made up of a predefined state that counts the number of clock pulses that are generated. When choosing a counter IC, you should evaluate the counting range needed for your application. For example, if you require a counting range that is less than 10, a CD4017 may be suitable.

Generally, counter ICs consist of flip-flops that are connected in cascade. There are a variety of types, including:

  • Asynchronous counter IC – the output of a flip-flop is the clock signal for the adjoining flip-flop
  • Synchronous counter IC – there is only one clock input signal that controls all flip-flops
  • Decade counter IC – is designed to count in decimal digits up to 10 and then resets to 0
  • Up counter & down counter – these are controlled by the input to count both up and down

What are counter ICs used for?

Each type of counter IC can be applied in different applications, so their use is varied. They are most commonly found in digital clocks and timers, including watches, oven timers and microwaves.
