Unformatted text preview: The major difference between D latches or DFF (data flip-flops) is that latches can continuously update their output as long as the signal is enabled whether that be active high or active low. For DFFs on the other hands, they can only change their outputs at the rising or falling edge of the enable signal; usually governed by a clock. Once the rising or falling edge of the clock has occurred, the outputs remain the same in a flip-flop even if the inputs change. (.(Hwang, n.d Two Latches can be used to create a flip-flop. (eeKnowHow, 2016) Using a configuration ;where only 1 latch is active at a time we can achieve the same functionality of a DFF. This type of circuit would follow the characteristics of a DFF; only triggering at .rising or falling edge. A good way to implement this is linked below Bibliography :eeKnowHow. (2016, October 3).
