Latches, Flip-flops, and Registers
Most digital circuits use electronic memory. Electronic memory circuits store the state of an input signal at some particular time, and their memorized outputs (or data) can be used at a later time. Digital circuits that use electronic memory are called sequential circuits, because they can use memorized data to create or sense ordered sequences of events. Combinational logic circuits do not use memory, and so they can only change their outputs to reflect the current state of their inputs. Creating sequences is fundamental to all of computing, and many 100's of billions of computing circuits are in use today. This project examines the fundamental memory circuits used in digital design.
