### D flip flop : How does it work in depth

I'm coming to you today because I have some trouble to understand how works D flip flop in depth. Two weeks ago we started at school learning sequential logic and so register and everything that come ...

### small size and small depth circuit for set intersections

Input: Given sets $S_i \subseteq \{1,2,3,4,\cdots,n\}$ for $1 \leq i \leq n$. Output: sets intersection with restriction (pick first set $S_1$. If $a \in S_1$ such that $a$ is the least element then ...

### What is the purpose of a single input, single output, bidirectional shift register?

(source: edu.au) This is the sort of bidirectional shift register, I'm talking about. I understand why the normal right shift is useful, but when you shift it left, all you're really doing is sending ...

### D - Latch or D Flip Flop?

I have a diagram (http://imgur.com/cET8Q14) where it is either a D Latch or D Flip Flop. I am trying to figure out which one it is and why. If it is a D Flip Flip, I also need to know which input is ...

### What is the exact difference between a latch & a flipflop?

From what I have understood : A Flip Flop is a clocked latch i.e. flip flop = latch + clock Latch continuously checks for inputs & changes the output whenever there is a change in input Flip Flop ...
I can't wrap my head around how the SR Latch works. Seemingly, you plug an input line from R, and another from S, and you are supposed to get results in $Q$ and $Q'$. However, both R and S require ...
