D Flip-Flop

The D flip-flop avoids the undefined states in the RSFF truth table by reducing the number of input options (figure 7.21).

Figure 7.21:  Statically triggered D flip-flop (transparent latch) mechanized with clocked RS, and the schematic symbol and its truth table.

The statically clocked DFF is also known as a transparent latch.
