The suggested simplifications of the system designs (Figs. 3 and 4) offered by Davis in his above comment are quite simple, straight-forward, and certainly valid, as one must consider these economical factors when a system of this type is designed. However, I think he has missed the point of the whole short note, at least as it was intended. It attempted not to offer a minimum-cost fully optimized system, but merely to discuss the concept of programmable clocked counters in general terms, as I thought the subject was very interesting, yet had failed to find it documented anywhere in the literature echnical journals or trade magazines).
