I have a piece of equipment that I am trying to hack together to make it do my bidding, and need a basic little logic circuit to do the job. I know this could easily be done with the Arduino, but I thought it would be a little overkill for this task.
I have a optical gate that counts mechanical teeth. I need the current microcontroller (out of my control) to count the teeth, but instead of 5 counts, I want it to see 4. I need it to control the motor 1 more click than it is now. I am thinking this may be able to be dealt with some logic gates, where it throws out the first click, and only counts the next four?
Voltage levels are in the 5v range, so logic gates should easily handle the job. The speed is slow in the world of electronics, Hz range I would guess.
