13.2 Theory

Flip-flops are the basic building blocks of sequential circuits. The clocked FFs change
their o/p state depending upon i/p's at certain interval of time synchronized with the
clock pulse applied to it.
Different types of FFs are S-R, J-K, D& T. Their operations are described by the
respective truth tables. MSI chip 7476 incorporates two negative edge triggered Master–
Slave JK flip-flops. The J-K flip-flop can be converted to D & T flip-flop.

13.3 Clocked SR Flip-Flop

The clocked RS flip-flop is like an SR flip-flop but with an extra third input of a standard
clock pulse CLK.

13.4 JK Flip-Flop

The JK flip-flop is an SRFF with some additional gating logic on the inputs which serve
to overcome the SR=11 prohibited state in the SRFF. A simple JKFF is illustrated below

The block symbol for a J-K flip-flop is a whole lot less frightening than its internal
circuitry, and just like the S-R and D flip-flops, J-K flip-flops come in two clock varieties
(negative and positive edge-triggered)

Truth Table
13.5 T Flip-Flop Using JK Flip-Flop

In case of T flip flop, if the T input is high, the T flip-flop changes state ("toggles")
whenever the clock input is strobed. If the T input is low, the flip-flop holds the previous
T Flip flop can be constructed using JK flip flop as shown in diagram below.

Truth Table

13.6 D Flip-Flop Using JK Flip-Flop

The delay flip-flop (DFF) is unique in that it only has one external input along with a
clock input. The logic symbol for this flip-flip is given below
D Flip flop can be constructed using JK flip flop as shown in diagram below.
