# What is the difference between a JK flip flop and an SR flip flop?

The main difference between a JK flip-flop and an SR flip-flop is that in the JK flip-flop, both inputs can be HIGH. When both the J and K inputs are HIGH, the Q output is toggled, which means that the output alternates between HIGH and LOW. Thereby the invalid condition which occurs in the SR flipflop is eliminated.

### How does a SR flip flop work?

A basic NAND gate SR flip-flop circuit provides feedback from both of its outputs back to its opposing inputs and is commonly used in memory circuits to store a single data bit. Then the SR flip-flop actually has three inputs, Set, Reset and its current output Q relating to it's current state or history.
• #### What is the difference between a flip flop and a latch?

The difference between a latch and a flip-flop is that a latch is asynchronous, and the outputs can change as soon as the inputs do (or at least after a small propagation delay). A flip-flop, on the other hand, is edge-triggered and only changes state when a control signal goes from high to low or low to high.
• #### What is clocked RS flip flop?

A simple clocked SR flipflop built from AND-gates in front of a basic SR flipflop with NOR-gates. Obviously, the values at the R and S inputs are gated with the clock signal C. Therefore, as long as the C signal stays at 0 value, the flipflop stores its value.
• #### What is the difference between a latch and a flip flop?

Both Latches and flip flops are circuit elements wherein the output not only depends on the current inputs, but also depends on the previous input and outputs. The main difference between the latch and flip flop is that a flip flop has a clock signal, whereas a latch does not.

### Why is it called a flip flop?

All you need to do to figure out why we call them "flip-flops" is to walk around in a pair of them for just a little while. Because of how they're made, the rubber soles slap against the bottom of your feet as you walk, making a flip-flop, flip-flop sound.
• #### What is SR flip flop?

A basic NAND gate SR flip-flop circuit provides feedback from both of its outputs back to its opposing inputs and is commonly used in memory circuits to store a single data bit. Then the SR flip-flop actually has three inputs, Set, Reset and its current output Q relating to it's current state or history.
• #### What is a thong for?

If you're wearing a pair of white skinny jeans, or any kind of tight bottom really, thongs are the only kind of underwear that you can wear without having an awkward panty line or your undies showing. Sure, you could go commando, but not everyone (myself included) is down with that breezy feel.
• #### Who invented the thong and why?

New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia ordered the city's nude dancers to cover themselves and the thong was invented to just barely do the job. Fashion designer, Rudi Gernreich has been credited with introducing the first thong bikini in 1974.
C.

### Is RS flip flop and SR flip flop same?

They are theoretically the same. However, there is a significant practical difference. Recall from the truth table of an SR flip-flop that its state is indeterminate when both inputs at R and S are high. In RS flip-flop, the reset input has higher priority and in an SR flip-flop, the set input has a higher priority.

• #### What is the function of a SR latch?

The simplest bistable device, therefore, is known as a set-reset, or S-R, latch. To create an S-R latch, we can wire two NOR gates in such a way that the output of one feeds back to the input of another, and vice versa, like this: The Q and not-Q outputs are supposed to be in opposite states.
