This is my first attempt at designing a discrete digital circuit.
Basically I'm looking to count the number of times a button is pressed. Each button press will trigger a new output. And the final button press will trigger a reset.
Basically I'm trying to make a 5 bit register where each bit will be a 1.
I have 74HC373s on hand. From all the reading I've done it seems like this part should be usable as a shift register. I just can't get it to simulate properly.
If I set the enable high using the push button, it will set all bits to 1 on the first click. If I clock the enable pin, it seems to be resetting every time the pin goes low which doesn't really make sense to me for a latch.
Does anybody have any experience simulating this part in Multisim 14?
Does this sound like typical behavior, or should I just go ahead and develop the circuit in solder instead of simulating?
