A CDE Definition
An electronic circuit that maintains one of two states. See flip-flop.
An electronic circuit that maintains its 0 or 1 state and is used in static memories and hardware registers. By the mid-20th century, the flip-flop was a breakthrough in circuit logic, which allowed data to be stored. The first flip-flops, known as "trigger circuits," were constructed with two transistors. Subsequent designs use two NOR or NAND logic gates.
