Sequential Circuits


A glitch is an unwanted pulse which gets generated due to little difference in the delays of signals. Whenever signals with glitches are used as clock then glitches causes unwanted triggering of the flip-flop.  e.g.

  • We can see in the wave-forms given above for MOD-14 counter that there is a glitch in the Q2 signal which is produced due to delay of AND gate to reset the FF.
  • Also a glitch can be generated when we AND two signals and there is a slight delay between two signals. Such a combinational circuit is used when we have to transfer data serially between two registers discussed already and we need limited number of clock cycles for proper working.

The following circuit was designed to produce enable signal (with 4 clock cycles)

But due to slight delay in the one of the input signals there is glitch in the output which would lead to mal-functioning of the circuit.

  1. obviously like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come again again.

  2. You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very extensive for me. I am looking ahead in your subsequent submit, I will try to get the cling of it!

  3. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.

  4. I will right away grasp your rss feed as I can not to find your e-mail subscription link or newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please let me recognise so that I may just subscribe. Thanks.

  5. What i do not realize is in truth how you’re not really a lot more neatly-preferred than you may be right now. You’re very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably when it comes to this topic, made me in my opinion imagine it from so many various angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated except it is something to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs great. All the time deal with it up!
