As opposed, may I ask, to what? JK flops? C gates? Maxwell's daemons? Specificity of question leads to specificity of answer. -- Rob Gaddi, Highland Technology Email address is currently out of order

Homework question? Probably because they were widely used in discrete logic design for the 20 or 30 years before ASIC's

Probably because it uses the least amount of chip area of any of the candidates for storing a bit. And _that's_ probably because it's close to a SRAM cell, so there's been intense work over many years in making it as small and cheap as possible. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Do you need to implement control loops in software?

Lumped element logic design is so last year...
Because of META stability, looks like homework so please use this Hint 
to investigate

Well, for some things my primary reason is hunger. For some others it may be tiredness. Then there is boredom. HTH. -- [mail]: Chuck F (cbfalconer at maineline dot net) [page]: <http://cbfalconer.home.att.net> Try the download section.
