This circuit has a rate multiplier using a 4093 Schmitt trigger as an oscillator, driving a 4017 decade counter. When a pulse p
resent at the input (to C2) 4017 is reset, output zero goes high, and outputs 1 to 9 go low. The oscillator (4093) starts running and the 4017 counts the pulses until the 4017 output (1 to 9) connected to pin 1 and 2 of the 4093 goes high. The oscillator is inhibited and the output remains high until the next input pulse.
