Content for 74LS76


The 74LS76 is a dual in-line JK flip flop IC. Meaning it has two JK flip flops inside it and each can be used individually based on our application. The JK flip flops are considered to be the most efficient flip-flop and can be used for certain applications on its own. The flip-flops are also called latching devices meaning it can remember one single bit of data and latch the output based on it, due to this property they are commonly used as shift registers, control registers, storage registers or where ever a small memory is required. More than one Flip Flop can be used in series to act as an EEPROM for holding a small amount of data. The JK flip flop is considered to be more suitable for practical application because of its truth table that is the output of the flip flop will be stable for all types of inputs.

10 Bits Binary Counter

“This is a binary counter that can count from 0 to 1023 because it’s a 10 bits binary counter. However, it needs 10-1N914 diodes like interface between the counter and the 10-10mm LEDs used in this project. The counter …

6 Bits Binary Counter

“This counter is the result of designing a cascading counter because it’s constructed like an asynchronous counter of 6 bits. That is, the project needs to function the following components: 6-10mm LEDs, 6-Flip-Flops(IC74LS76), and an IC555 timer for …

Build an 8-bit computer from scratch

“I built a programmable 8-bit computer from scratch on breadboards using only simple logic gates. I documented the whole project in a series of YouTube videos and on this web site. “
