Flp (Flip) Module

Emulates a classic logic circuit known as a "Set/Reset Flip-Flop." This is essentially a 1-bit memory circuit, and it is one of the core building blocks of digital computers. In the context of BankStep, it is like a wall light switch: once it is flipped, it stays there until it is flipped again.

Special:

Blue Feedback Button: Causes the Reset input to be internally connected, so that subsequent pulses at the Set input cause the output to alternate between On and Off.

Red Run/Stop Button: Click in to cause the Flip module to control the state of the system Run/Stop button. That is, when clicked in, a pulse at the Set input will set Run/Stop to Run, and a pulse at the Reset input will set Run/Stop to Stop.

Inputs:

Yellow LED (Set Logical): A pulse at this input causes the output to go On and stay On until the Reset input gets a new pulse, at which time the output will go Off and stay there until the Set input gets another pulse, etc.

Orange LED (Reset Logical): A pulse at this input causes the output to go Off and stay Off until the Set input gets a new pulse, at which time the output will go On and stay there until the Reset input gets another pulse, etc. This input is ignored when the blue Feedback button is clicked in.

Logical Output:

Flp X: Results of the Flip-Flop operation.
