Here is what i am getting the pattern,

CLK | ABC |

0 | 000 |

1 | 100 |

2 | 110 |

3 | 111 |

4 | 011 |

5 | 001 |

6 | 000 |

What will be answer 5 or 6 ?

Consider the logical circuit shown below:

If initially *ABC* = 000 then after how many clock pulses the circuit will reach its initial stage?

a) 5

b) 6

c) 7

d) 8

$J_A= C' , K_A = C ,$ So, $A^+ = J_AA'+K_A'A = C'A'+C'A = C'$

$D_B = A,$ So $B^+ = D_B = A$

$J_C =B , K_C = B' ,$ So $C^+ = J_CC'+K_C'C = BC'+BC = B$

So,$A^+=C', B^+ = A,$ and $C^+ = B$

Initially $ABC= 000$ so counter goes as

$000$

$100$

$110$

$111$

$011$

$001$

$000$

After $6$ clocks it will be back to initial state

Note:

1. Characterstic equation of JK FF , $Q_{t+1}=JQ_t'+K'Q_t$ and of D FF, $Q_{t+1}=D$

2. It is a Johnson counter , having $n$ flip-flops or ($n$-bit Johnson counter), and having $2n$ states.

3. $n$-bit Johnson counter is also known as mod$2n$ counter.

Thank you very much sir.

I have one more doubt, Johnson Counter can be made by only all JK - FF or all D - FF but here they have used both. Is this one also be called as Johnson counter ?
