Dear Instructables, how would i go about creating a 3 digit up counter that reacted to 3 buttons of different values?
Basically i'm designing and making a scoreboard for a rugby match for an a-level course. I'll explain the buttons of different values first, in rugby (for those who don't know) there are 3 different ways that the score can increase 2 points (conversion), 3 points (penalty, drop goal) and 5 points (try). I already know how to make a circuit to increase in 1's but i wasn't sure if you could do it with 3 different values in the same circuit. I was thinking of using a 4024 seven bit counter connected to a bcd to led decoder then to 7 segment led displays. is there anything out there which could make my job easier or do you have any advice or could you help me? Thanks alot, Hrimiller
