I'm analyzing the following component:
It says that this flip-flop has a high impedance state when the output control bit is raised high. Does this allow the flip flop to be connected directly to a bus, without a buffer chip? If the chip is switched into high impedance mode would it lose the data locked into it?
I'm wanting to use this chip as a home brewed cpu register. I was looking at An octal buffer(54AC541) between this and the bus; however, I no longer think this is necessary.
