What is Flip flop: Definition and 40 Discussions

Flip-flops are a type of sandal, typically worn as a form of casual wear. They consist of a flat sole held loosely on the foot by a Y-shaped strap known as a toe thong that passes between the first and second toes and around both sides of the foot or can be a hard base with a strap across all the toes (these can also be called sliders or slides).
This style of footwear has been worn by the people of many cultures throughout the world, originating as early as the ancient Egyptians in 1,500 B.C.
In the United States the flip-flop has been popularized from the Japanese zōri, after World War II as soldiers brought them back from Japan. They became a prominent unisex summer footwear starting in the 1960s.

    RS flip flop -- Replacing a NOR gate with an OR gate

    In the RS flip flops using a NOR gate if we replace the NOR by an OR gate all the outputs will be indeterminate. Both outputs Q and Q' will every time yield 1. Can you explain how the inputs 0 and 0 will give 1 1 as output

    Question about a Flip Flop circuit

    Hello! I am confused in a question I found on youtube. I have uploaded the screen shots. He told that with respect to S and R we have to write the change from Q to Q+( next state). But I am not getting it. How he wrote Q+ states?Is he considering that when S=1 , we have to set the circuit i.e on...

    Electronic NOT gate chip question

    Hi, Can current flow both ways through a NOT gate, or is the diagram I saw, much like the picture I drew here, just drawn the wrong way around? Anyway, say it was correct, so what does this mean? Because the chip itself (the not gate chip Vcc = 5V and Gnd) takes 5V between it and the chip...
