Flip flops

  1. Apr 26, 2015 #1
    I am not getting these truth table & excitation table for a flip-flop.. I mean I can understand it but what is the difference between the two?? they are same to a large extent what actually is differentiating an excitation table from a truth table??

    Truth Table tells you all the possible combinations of inputs and outputs.

    Whereas, an excitation table tells you the inputs required to be applied to the flip-flop to take it from the present state to the next state.
    Alternatively, an excitation table tells you the inputs you require for transitions from like 0 (present state) to 1 (next state).
