  • \$\begingroup\$ You'll need a better definition of "properly" for a start. \$\endgroup\$ – Finbarr May 20 '20 at 13:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ So that it can count as it is supposed too \$\endgroup\$ – ASZCWWQ1 May 20 '20 at 13:04
  • \$\begingroup\$ I also added the output of the ripple counter for two different frequencies. \$\endgroup\$ – ASZCWWQ1 May 20 '20 at 13:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ripple counters have their flaws: propagation delay in asynchronous counter. It becomes more significant the faster you clock it. The point at which it becomes a problem depends what you're using it for. \$\endgroup\$ – Finbarr May 20 '20 at 13:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ Simple answer is the max clock frequency of the first flip-flop. \$\endgroup\$ – Finbarr May 20 '20 at 13:16
