    Need some help settling a discussion.....does anyone know the origination of
    the J & K in a J-K Flip Flop????

    1. Do they represent Jack Kilby....the father of the integrated circuit?

    2. Do they represent two random letters that got used the first time
    someone described bistable logic devices?

    3. Do they represent something else??

    Dad thinks it's number 1......daughter thinks it's number 2.....

    Obviously, "because I say so" does not work here :)

    'Jam' and 'Klear' is what I've heard.
