The circuit diagram of a synchronous counter is shown in the figure. Determine the
sequence of states of the counter assuming that the initial state is ‘000’. Give
your answer in a tabulor form showing the present state Q

_{A(n)}, Q_{B(n)}, Q_{C(n)}, J-K inputs ( J_{A}, K_{A}, J_{B}, K_{B}, J_{C}, K,) and the next state $${Q_{A\left( {n + 1} \right)}},\,{Q_{B\left( {n + 1} \right)}},{Q_{C\left( {n + 1} \right)}}$$ From the table, determine the modulus of the counter.2

The mod-5 counter shown in figure counts through states Q

_{2}Q_{1}Q_{0}= 000, 001, 010, 011 and 100.(a) Will the counter lockout if it happens to be in any one of the unused states?

(b) Find the maximum rate at which the counter will operate satisfactorily. Assume the propagation delays of flip-flop and AND gate to be t_{F} and t_{A}

A 4-bit shift register, which shifts 1 bit to the right at every clock pulse, is intialized to values (1000) for (Q

_{0}Q_{1}Q_{2}Q_{3}). The D input is derived from Q_{0}, Q_{2}and Q_{3}through two XOR gates as shown in figure.(a) Write the 4-bit values (Q_{0}Q_{1}Q_{2}Q_{3}) after each clock pulse till the pattern (1000) reappears on (Q_{0}Q_{1}Q_{2}Q_{3}).

(b) To what values should the shift register be intialized so that the pattern (1001) occurs after the first clock pulse?
