    Hi, I would like to ask if anyone know a circuit or an IC that has
    the following characteristic.

    single input -- single output

    The output should only be triggered by a positive (1) input and will
    not change even if the input changed it state to 0. But when the
    input changed in state to 1 again, the output should change in state.

    I would like to implement this on my design in a sequential light.

    The assignment is to implement one with gates. If it
    were me, I'd use a master-slave arrangement, because I've
    never been able to figure out how to toggle one. But I
    can toggle a 2-transistor, emitter-coupled flip-flop.
    Go figure. ;-)

    they call it a flip flop.
    A D type will work with its DATA
    input connected to an out.
    a RS, or JK also..
    the output will be a logic 5 or
    what ever depending on what family
    of logic chip you use.
    you most likely want to use something
    like a TTL, HC or CMOS into a transistor/
    a HexFet works well for this.
  4. Here's a circuit using Jamie's suggested approach:
  5. The circuit you describe is known as a divide by two circuit. It's a part of
    almost all counters but can be made easily out of a single flipflop. One of
    the oldest and wellknown is the 74LS74. Although this days a CMOS successor
    like a CD4013B may be a better choice. Just connect the inverted output of
    the flipflop - /Q or an "overscored" Q - to its D-input. Then the Clock
    input of the flipflop is your input and the Q output of the flipflop is your
    output. Hope you have the skills to build your sequential light.

    But you've got the input connected to the Q output.
    That'll let the magic smoke out.

    I assume you meant for the input to go to the
    clock pin in the middle?

    And this is an alternative:

    | |
    | | Output
    | .--o--. |
    .-----. | .-----|J S Q|-----o--------o
    | G | | | -|> | __ __
    |_-_-_|----------o---)-----|K R Q|o ---. __ __ __
    | | | '--o--' |
    '-----'Input | |

  8. Eh, of course. I was a little bit fast here.
