IC 4024 is a 7-stage binary ripple counter with a divide-by-two section and a reset input. It is a CMOS integrated circuit and can operate at a wide range of supply voltages.
Here is a datasheet for the IC 4024:
The IC 4024 is a 14-stage binary ripple counter with a divide-by-two section and a reset input. It is designed for use in digital counting applications and features a wide supply voltage range and low power consumption.

The IC 4024 is a 14-stage binary ripple counter. The counter increments on the rising edge of the clock input (CP). The divide-by-two section produces a half-frequency output on output 6 (Q6). The reset input (MR) resets the counter to zero when it is pulled low.
There are 7 outputs for the IC 4024. The outputs are Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q5, Q6, Q7.
The number beside the Q indicates by what figure it divides the input pulses to produce a divided output.
Let's take the example of pin#3 which is a Q7 output.
Q7 means, it divides the input pulses at pin#1 by 27 = 128.
If, let's assume that the clock frequency at pin#1 is 512 Hz, then this 512 will be divided at the output pin#7 by 128. The result will be 512 / 128 = 4 Hz.
Therefore, if there's a 512 Hz frequency at pin#1 then pin#7 will divided it by 2 to generate a 4 Hz frequency.
The same applies for the other outputs. For example pin#4 which is Q6 will divide by 26 , pin#5 which is Q5 will divide by 25 ans so on.
The IC 4024 is commonly used in digital counting applications, such as frequency dividers, timers, and clocks.
One example application circuit can be seen in the following figure which can used to generate long duration delay timings from a IC 555 oscillator.
The IC 4024 is available in a variety of package types, including DIP (Dual Inline Package) and SOP (Small Outline Package).
The IC 4024 is manufactured by various semiconductor manufacturers, including Texas Instruments, STMicroelectronics, and NXP Semiconductors.
