Bistable Multivibrator using 555 Timer

As the name indicates, a bistable multivibrator has 2 stable states. It can be switched from one state to another by providing an external trigger. It can be used for storing a binary digit (bit) as it has 2 stable states (0 or 1). So it is commonly used in digital circuits, where it is named as Flip Flop or Latches. A bistable multivibrator can be easily constructed using the most popular and low cost 555 Timer IC.

D Flip Flop Conversion Techniques

D Flip Flop is primarily meant to provide delay as the output of this Flip Flop is same as the input. D Flip Flop can easily be made by using a SR Flip Flop or JK Flip Flop. But sometimes designers may be required to design other Flip Flops by using D Flip Flop. Here we discuss how to convert a D Flip Flop into JK and SR Flip Flops. The first thing that needs to be done for converting [...]
