Universal gates

NAND and NOR logic gates are also known as universal gates . Any combinational and sequential logic can be implemented using NAND and NOR gates. Even the flip flop circuits are constructed using universal gates.


The equivalent operations of NOT, AND and OR gates using NAND gates are shown below Continue reading

JK flip flop

JK flip flop is modified RS flip flop. The inputs R and S are ANDed with Q and Q’ respectively to form the inputs of JK flip flop. Its operation remains same as RS flip flop except when both inputs are 1.The indeterminate state, i.e. when R=1, S=1, is eliminated in JK flip flop and the output toggles or complements its state when J=1, K=1.
