• 74HC390 IC - Dual 4-bit Decade Ripple Counter IC (74390 IC)


74HC390 is a 16 Pin Dual 4-bit Decade Ripple Counter IC having 2V to 6V Operating Voltage range. It has been divided into four separately clocked sections. The counters have two divide-by-2 sections and two divide-by-5 sections. These sections share an asynchronous master reset input (nMR) and can be used in a BCD decade or bi-quinary configuration. If master reset inputs 1MR and 2MR are used to clear all 8 bits of the counter simultaneously, numerous counting configurations are possible within one package.

Section clocks nCP0 and nCP1, allow ripple counter or frequency division applications of divide-by-2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 or 100. The HIGH-to-LOW transition of the clock inputs nCP0 and nCP1 trigger each section. For BCD decade operation, the nQ0 output is connected to the nCP1 input of the divide-by-5 section. For bi-quinary decade operation, the nQ3 output is connected to the nCP0 input and nQ0 becomes the decade output. A HIGH on the nMR input overrides the clocks and sets the four outputs LOW. Inputs include clamp diodes. It enables the use of current limiting resistors to interface inputs to voltages in excess of VCC.
