Definitions for Digital Systems
output is determined by the combinations of one or more inputs
is dependent on:
The current input to the circuit;
The previous inputs to the
in output do not occur immediately there is a change in input, but the
next time there is a clock pulse
next stage is triggered by the completion of the previous stage without
reference to a clock pulse
triggering in which the changes occur when the level of the pulse is
either at 0 or 1.
triggering in which the change occurs as the clock pulse rises from 0 to
1(rising or positive edge) or from 1 to 0 (falling or negative edge).
triggered devices are called flip-flops.
sensitive devices are often referred to as latches
