## What is 4 bit ripple carry counter?

A ripple counter is an asynchronous counter in which the preceding flop’s output clocks all the flops except the first. Asynchronous means all the elements of the circuits do not have a common clock. For example, a 4 bit counter will count from 0000 to 1111.

**Which Modelling is used for ripple counter?**

Verilog Ripple Counter

A ripple counter is an asynchronous counter in which the all the flops except the first are clocked by the output of the preceding flop.

### What is a ripple down counter?

A ripple counter is an asynchronous counter where only the first flip-flop is clocked by an external clock. All subsequent flip-flops are clocked by the output of the preceding flip-flop. Asynchronous counters are also called ripple-counters because of the way the clock pulse ripples it way through the flip-flops.

**Which counter has highest operating speed?**

synchronous counter

The synchronous counter is the fastest counter because all the flip flop gets clock at the same time whereas in asynchronous counter clock is given only to input flip flop and it takes some time to reach all the flip flop.

## Why ripple counter is called so?

Asynchronous counters are also called ripple-counters because of the way the clock pulse ripples it way through the flip-flops.

**What is 2 bit ripple counter?**

Binary Ripple Counter A Binary counter is a 2-Mod counter which counts up to 2-bit state values, i.e., 22 = 4 values. The flip flops having similar conditions for toggling like T and JK are used to construct the Ripple counter.

### How many flip-flops are needed for a mod 32 binary counter?

For a mod 32 counter, 32=2^5. So 5 flip-flops are required.

**What is mod 12 ripple counter?**

It is obvious that a mod-12 counter will require 4 flip-flops which when connected as a counter, will provide 16 states. This counter counts 0, 1, 2, .., 15 and then it resets to 0. For a mod-12 counter, one may skip state 12 and return to state 0 from state 11 and the cycle should continue this way.

## Which counter gives faster response?

Synchronous Counter is faster than asynchronous counter in operation. Asynchronous Counter is slower than synchronous counter in operation.
