How do I preset a 4029 counter? Answered
Hi all. I am having trouble finding how to preset the minimum output of a 4029. Meaning that I want it to start at an output of 5 (0101) and count up to 15 (1111) and then have it start counting at 5 again. My project is an ASCII counter to check that the ASCII displays with 7 bit binary inputs that I have are functioning correctly and I want to use the 4029 as my input. The problem that I am having is possably misinterpreting the data sheets but is seems that in order to preset the input, the preset pin has to be HI but to run, it has to be LO. Does this mean that I have to set the prest HI, input my preset value of 5, and then bring it LO again to run?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you much in advance.
