Binary Encoder – Construction, Types & Applications

Schematic of 8 to 3 line encoder using OR gate

Digital Binary Encoder – Types & Construction What is Binary Encoder? A combinational circuit capable of converting “2n” input signals into “n” signals (such as BCD (Binary Coded Decimal) Binary etc) is called binary encoder also known as digital encoder.. Its operation is exactly opposite of Binary Decoder. In simple words, Binary Encoder used to encode a Binary Codes. It …

Digital Synchronous Counter – Types, Working & Applications

Digital Synchronous Counter – Types & Applications What is Digital Counter? A digital binary counter is a device used for counting binary numbers. Digital counters mainly use flip-flops and some combinational circuits for special features. As we know flip-flop operates on clock pulses. So the counter will count up or down using these pulses. The time period of clock signal …
