Abstract

This "divide-by-N" counter is a binary frequency divider which is particularly suitable where "N" is a relatively small number. "N" may be either an odd number or an even number. This counter employs level sensitive scan design (LSSD)-type shift register latches (SRLs) and hence is fully compatible with the LSSD design philosophy which is described in Eichelberger et al., "A Logic Design Structure for LSI Testability". 14th Design Automation Conference Proceedings, 462-467 (June 1977).
