  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm just trying to understand the flip flops, pretty new to this. \$\endgroup\$ – Eugen Valentin May 9 '17 at 17:15
  • \$\begingroup\$ Neither one has an inherent problem. They do two different things. \$\endgroup\$ – Spehro Pefhany May 9 '17 at 17:15
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SpehroPefhany Well.. one of the input combinations of SR is problematic.. But that's what JK is solving. \$\endgroup\$ – Eugene Sh. May 9 '17 at 17:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ OK, after the edit the question is becoming off-topic (or too broad? VTC, anyway.). This information is easily available around and you have to do your own research... Oh wait.. @laptop2d it was your edit. I think it's quite different from the OPs intent. \$\endgroup\$ – Eugene Sh. May 9 '17 at 17:21

A D-flip flop basically stores the value for one clock cycle (and functions like a buffer, a chip enable pin will let you store for multiple clock cycles).

An SR flip flop is like a light switch. Set turns it 'on' and reset turns it 'off'
