Regardless of the Clock and D values, if the current flip-flop state ( q )is0and ClearB remains 1, changing PresetB from 1 to 0 (denoted by the down arrow) will cause output transitions at Q and QB after 1.6 and 1.8 ns, respectively. Besides the input-to-output transport delay, the flip-flop timing model usually contains timing constraints, such as setup/hold times and inertial delays for each input. 3.3 LOGIC SIMULATION In this section, we will discuss two commonly used gate-level logic simulation methodologies: compiled-code and event-driven. The reader should note that,
