# What is a simple flip flop?

## What is a simple flip flop?

Flip-flops can be either simple or clocked. A simple flip-flop changes state as soon as the input changes. A clocked flip-flop changes state only when an extra pulse occurs. This pulse is called the clock signal. Commonly, flip-flop only refers to clocked circuits; the simple ones are commonly called latches.

What is the truth table of RS flip flop?

The RS Flip Flop is considered as one of the most basic sequential logic circuits. The Flip Flop is a one-bit memory bi-stable device. It has two inputs, one is called “SET” which will set the device (output = 1) and is labelled S and another is known as “RESET” which will reset the device (output = 0) labelled as R.

Why we use RS flip flop?

RS flip flops find uses in many applications in logic or digital electronic circuitry. They provide a simple switching function whereby a pulse on one input line of the flip flop sets the circuit in one state. Further pulses on this line have no effect until the R-S flip flop is reset.

### What is limitation of RS flip flop?

The limitation with a S-R flip-flop using NOR and NAND gate is the invalid state. This problem can be overcome by using a stable SR flip-flop that can change outputs when certain invalid states are met, regardless of the condition of either the Set or the Reset inputs.

What’s the difference between SR flip flop and Rs flip flop?

When both S & R inputs of the flip flop are high SR flip flop sets the output. SR ( Set Rest) flipflop will be SET (1) while RS flip flop resets the output. RS ( Reset set) flipflop will be RESET (0)

How do you make an R’s flip flop?

To make an R S flip flop, it simple requires either two NAND gates or two NOR gates. Using two NAND gates and active low R S flip flop is produced. In other words low going pulses active the flip flop.

## Is the R’s flip flop an active high circuit?

However using the NOR logic gate version of the R S flip flop, the circuit is an active high variant. In other words the input signals need to go high to produce a change on the output. This may determine the choice of integrated circuit that is used.

Which is an invalid condition of the RS flip flop?

This unstable condition is known as Meta- stable state. The bistable RS flip flop or is activated or set at logic “1” applied to its S input and deactivated or reset by a logic “1” applied to R. The RS flip-flop is said to be in an invalid condition if both the set and reset inputs are activated simultaneously.
