JK Flipflop Characteristic

  1. Mar 3, 2008 #1
    Main characteristic of the JK flip-flop stands for....

    What is "main characteristic" referring to?

    Is characteristic the equation or truth table of the JK flip flop

    I'm assuming it means the truth table.

    I would have said that it was the truth table. Although it could also be talking about the equation. It sounds mis-quoted or missing some extra information to me.

    Essentially the truth table and C.E. show the same thing, the operation of the flip-flop. So essentially which you choose is dependant on the situation in which you are using it, unless one is specified.

    Well, there is no "equation" of a flip-flop...

    There is between the current and next state's ouputs and the current inputs, that is you can create one surely - it just isn't of much use for an element with a reasonably simple state table.

    But as you say Warren; there isn't an equation OF a flip-flop.

    Thanks guys for the help. I actually thought it was worded incorrectly myself, so I put the equation and the truth table
