      If you mean flip-flops as in footwear, the noise when women walk in them is anything but annoying. It's one of the reasons I look forward to the long hot summer (whenever we get one around here). Lol:)
  • 1) In electronics, both are "a kind of bistable multivibrator, an electronic circuit which has two stable states and thereby is capable of serving as one bit of [memory / information]". Here the difference: "Today, the term flip-flop has come to generally denote non-transparent (clocked or edge-triggered) devices, while the simpler transparent ones are often referred to as latches." Source and further information: "Today the word [latch] is mainly used for simple transparent storage elements, while slightly more advanced non-transparent (or clocked) devices are described as flip-flops. Informally, as this distinction is quite new, the two words are sometimes used interchangeably." Source and further information: 2) In a more general sense, both words can refer to several different things:
  • Both latches and flip-flops are circuit elements whose output depends not only on the current inputs, but also on previous inputs and outputs. The difference between a latch and a flip-flop is that a latch does not have a clock signal, whereas a flip-flop always does.Latches are asynchronous, which means that the output changes very soon after the input changes.A flip-flop is a synchronous version of the latch. Latch is a level sensitive device and flip-flop is edge sensitive device. Latch is sensitive to glitches on enable pin, where as flip-flop is immune to gltiches. Latches take less gates (also less power) to implement then flip-flops. Latches are faster then flip-flops. this is how the output of the two will differ: the output of the latch will be the same as the data input as it does not have a clock signal whereas in a flipflop there would be a delay of one clock cycle to see the output. pooja
  • A latch is asynchronous, and the outputs can change as soon as the inputs do A flip-flop, on the other hand, is edge-triggered and only changes state when a control signal goes from high to low or low to high.
  • Flip-flops are footwear. Latches are for holding doors or gates open. If you don't know the difference I'm not going to send you shopping. Lol:)
