Flip Flop is basically a term that is used to refer to a form of electronic circuits. This kind of circuit has two stable states and is capable of serving as a single bit of memory. This term is used nowadays for clocked or edge triggered devices. These circuits are controlled by control signals or a gate or clock signal.
There are a number of types of Flip-flops such as:
- Set-Reset Flip-flops, also known as SR Flip-flops
- Toggle Flip-Flops
- JK Flip Flops
- D Flip Flops
- Master -Slave D Flip Flops
