    Help needed on how to preset the CD4510 BCD up/down counter to any
    digits. I am looking
    for a 2 digits 7 segment count down timer circuit. Please help.

    You would need two of them, and some dip switches or hardwired preset
    inputs to set the "count from" digit. Or if you want to get fancy -
    there are decimal thumb wheel switches that read the digit 0-9 and
    output the BCD code - or you can just get a ten position rotary switch
    and do it yourself with steering diodes.

    The outputs have to be sent to a decoder, driver (can be in a single
    package usually including a "latch" to hold the count input
    temporarily)

    Gives the basics

    Your display driver would depend on whether you want Common Cathode or
    CA display LEDs or an LCD display.

    This stuff is really easy to do - just a few data sheets and some
    think time - and it has been presented in thousands of hobby articles.
