English term or phrase:toggle / flip-flop
what's the difference between toggle and flip-flop ???
Explanation: toggle is the British term for US flip-flop, the GB flip-flop is the US flop-over (bistabil vs. monostabil); see the entry from Ernst below:
flip-flop (US), toggle (GB) (electron) / Flip-Flop m n, bistabiles Kippglied, Speicherglied n
flip-flop (GB), flop-over (US) (electron) / monostabiles Flip-Flop, monostabile Kippschaltung, monostabiler Multivibrator, Monoflop m n, Flip-Flop-Generator m, Univibrator m, Monovibrator m
Explanation: A toggle flip-flop, as opposed to a conventional RS (Set/Reset) flip-flop, changes its output state whenever the T input receives a "High" signal. Due to this behaviour, it is often used as a frequency divider (a frequency halver).
