    How to Make a 4-bit Shift Register Circuit

    The Learning Circuit | element14 presents |  Project Videos



    After learning about shift registers, Karen shows how to use one in a circuit. Shift registers can take data from a single input and transfer it to multiple outputs or take data from multiple inputs and transfer it to a single output. In this video, Karen shows how to use a 4-bit, bidirectional shift register in a circuit. This shift register has 4 parallel inputs and outputs where data can be transferred. It also has two serial inputs, that can be used to shift data left or right across the 4 outputs. After seeing how the circuit is made, can you think of a way to use this universal shift register in a project? Post your ideas in the comments below or find Karen and tell her about it on the element14 Community!
