Single-Transistor-Clocked Flip-Flop

The invention provides a low power, high performance flip-flop.  The flip-flop uses only one clocked transistor.  The single clocked transistor is shared by the first and second branches of the device.  A pulse generator produces a clock pulse to trigger the flip-flop.  In one preferred embodiment the device can be made as a static explicit pulsed flip-flop which employs only two clocked transistors.
