Flip flop and latch difference
Difference between Latch and Flip-flop
|1.||Structure- latch is purely based on blocks of logic gates||Flip flop made by blocks of logic gates with the use of latch.|
|2.||It does not have clock in it’s internal circuit||It has a clock with it’s internal circuit|
|It checks or monitors inputs continuously and changes the output.
corresponding to inputs.
|It checks/monitors input continuously but the output changes with respect to clock signal.|
|4.||Latch is sensitive to input signal only.||Flip flop is sensitive to input and clock signal.|
|5.||Inputs can change at any time so It is level trigger||Flip flop can get triggered with some instance with clock. So Flip-Flop is Edge trigger.|
|6.||It cannot be used as resistor||It can be used as resistor because it has clock in its circuit.|
|7.||Latch is an asynchronous circuit||Flip flop is Synchronous circuit|
|8.||It requires less power than Flip flop||It requires more power than latch|
|Latch does not take delay to respond to output with
respect to input. So latch is faster than Flip Flop.
|Flip flop takes delay to respond output because it has input as well as clock signal. So it is Slower than Latch|
|10.||Circuit designing of Latch is Not complex than Flip flop||Circuit designing of Flip flop is complex than the Latch.|
