### Description

The JK flip flop is the most versatile of the basic flip-flops. It has two inputs traditionally labeled
**J** (Set) and **K** (Reset).

When the inputs

**J**and**K**are different, the output**Q**takes the value of**J**at the next falling edge.When the inputs

**J**and**K**are both low, no change occurs in the output state.When the inputs are both high the output

**Q**will toggle from one state to other. It can perform the functions of the set/reset (SR) flip-flop and has the advantage that there are no ambiguous states.

The **!Q** output is the logical negation of **Q**

It can also act as a T flip-flop to accomplish toggling action if **J**
and **K** are tied together. This toggle application finds extensive use
in binary counters.

The user can set the initial output state with **Initial Value**
parameter.

The truth table of this block is:

Hold | ||||

Reset | ||||

Set | ||||

Toggle |

where * Q* is the previous state of

_{n-1}

*.*

`Q`_{n}

### Data types

The block supports the following types :

Inputs:

**J**: scalar. Scilab's int8 data type only.**clk**: scalar. Scilab's real double.**K**: scalar. Scilab's int8 data type only.

A positive input is considered as logical 1, a negative or a null input as logical 0.

Outputs: scalar. Scilab's int8 data type.
