A phony counter?
Here's a chance to make a multivibrator circuit imitate a counter. Turn the power ON when you finish the wiring.
You'll see the numbers 0 and 1 appear in turn on the Display. You'll notice that two of the segments on the Display stay lit all the time. Four other segments light up and go off according to the output of the multivibrator.
This Project produces an effect similar to Project Binary counter with display. But are both Projects the same?
Think about it a minute (you might want to compare schematics for them) and then check your answer below.
Before going on to the next Project, see if you can produce some different indications on the Display. Keep notes of what you managed to come up with - because you'll soon see how to produce different indications.
