MetadataShow full item record
A problem in the circuit design of a flexible ring counter is stated and the steps necessary for its solution is outlined. This problem is oriented as a specific example of electronic implementation. A brief historical account of problem solving devices is given. The basic elements of problem implementation by electronic means are briefly described, particularly the bistable Eccles-Jordan pair. The detailed account of the solution of the particular problem, as well as a discussion of alternative designs, is presented. A short discussion is given of basic limitations to speed of operation in pulse circuits.
