I have done a lot of research on flip flops so to speak and I have put together my understanding, please correct were I’m wrong.
Flip flops are bistable multivibrators able to store two states (one and zero), indefinitely as long as current is flowing through the circuit, and can only change their output when triggered by an external input.
Flip flops are made using a feedback loop.
NOR and NAND gates are not the only gates used in a flip flip, they are preferred because they are less expensive, easier to design and use fewer transistors/resources.
The output of the NAND/NOR flip flop should invert (Q = notQ) to provide certainty.
For the last point I mentioned, I did cause of, when a basic flip flop is drawn, using NAND gates, it is usually stated that the both outputs should not be the same,in this case(both Q’s != 1) and they use a D FF to eliminate that from happening, so after much asking why I gathered that, it doesn’t cause any damage, it kinds of just brings about certainty or uniformity, that at all times you know( Q = not Q), is this correct?
Please are the above stated correct, please feel free to add more information if needed.
