Post subject:  74LS161 Binary Counter question

Hello there. First I ll introduce myself as this is my forst post. My name is Ryan and I have been using this board as reference for a long time. I just stated modding carts and making carts just recently and have found this board and the Nesdev wiki VERY VERY useful. So a BIG "Thanks" to everyone who has posted, Im sure Ive used your info.


My quesrtion today is about the Binary Counter 74LS161. IM trying to understand how the counter workds exactly. I stumbled up callan brown's tutorial on making a 4 in 1 multi cart and found that interesting. But I want to take it a step further and make a 8 in 1 or even a 16 in 1. But I am not sure exactly how the counter works and dont know how I would break it up into 8 banks or 16 banks.

Can someone help me undertsand how to do this please? I truely appreciate any help.


Ryan

Rather than trying to anticipate exactly what your question is, have you read the datasheet?

for example, http://www.futurlec.com/74LS/74LS161.shtml

What would you like clarified?

Check out this link. In this tutorial he explains how to assemble a 4 in 1 multi cart. And references also being able to make use of 8 banks and 16 banks. That's what I need clarifying is exactly how the use 3 bits of the counter for 8 banks and 4 bits of the counter for 16 banks.

Here's the link.

Thanks in advance

Do you understand bitwise logic and binary? Connecting only the bottom two bits is equivalent to ANDing with 3 (because 3=2+1)
