Counters 1 and 2 have additional "alarm" registers and comparators associated with them plus logic for operating in a 24-hour time-of-day mode. For real-time applications, the time-of-day logic will accept 50 Hz, 60 Hz, or 100 Hz input frequencies. Each counter has a dedicated output pin. That output may be turned off when the output is not of interest. The 9513 chip provides considerable versatility for configuring inputs as well as gating of individual counters. This permits dynamic reassignment of inputs under softwar e control and also allows multiple counters to use a single input and allows a single gate input to control more than one counter.
The CTR-05 card includes flip-flops to synchronize gate and clock inputs and improve timing and counting accuracy. You can place jumpers to select either the synchronized or the non-synchronized mode. Further, a second jumper associated with each counter selects either leading edge or falling edge synchronization. Also, CTR-05 contains a means to assure that Read and Write pulses from the computer are at least 400 nS in duration. This feature is activated when a jumper is installed across two programming pins labeled WAIT. While normally not required, this feature is useful for computers with Bus speeds above 6-8 MHz.
