hi all,

Why we are using only D Flip-Flop in IC design. Why not all other Flip-Flops.

D Flip-Flop

You can build most any flip flop using a D-flop and some gates.

Re: D Flip-Flop

In most of the complex digital designs, we need storage like registers, memory etc which can be build with D FF's, other FF's are also used but less often as the need arises.

Re: D Flip-Flop

D flip flop is the basic flop. It can be used as memories (which is used in many applications). It can also be used as dividers by just adding a not gate. Moreover other flops are not easy to use/modify as D flip flop

Re: D Flip-Flop

D Flipflop is completely scannable(Controllable & Testable).

Re: D Flip-Flop

D-FF will take less power consumption than any other flops.
T-FF is designed from D-FF with combo logic.
JF-FF is having 2 inputs to toggle. It will be difficult to design as well as controlling the switching activity ..

and more advantages. Please read John knight Digitial slides from Carleton University..

Regards,
Sam

D Flip-Flop

Design a circuit with d ff is easy and also in case of jk ff we required to handle 2 input which is difficult as weel as controlling of both input is also not easy in case of large design.
As sam said D ff also take less power.
