(b) E~plain and draw MOD -10 asynchronous counter using T- FF.Draw output waveforms and show where glitches occur.



5. (a) Construct a twisted ring counter using IC741’94 and draw the output waveforms.

 (b) A lawn sprinkling system is controlled automatically by certain combination of the following variables:

 Season ( S= 1 if summer;0, otherwise)

 Temperature (T = 1, if high; 0, if low)

Atmospheric humidity ( H = 1, if high; 0, if low)

Moisture content of the soil ( M = 1, if high; 0, if low)

The sprinkler is turned ON under any of the following circumstances:

(i) The moisture.contentis low in winter

 (ii) The temperature is high and moisture content is low in summer

(Hi) The temperature is high and humidity is high in summer

(iv) The temperature is low and moisture content is low in summer

 (v) The temperature is high and humidity is low.
