A latch will be either transparent or "latched" based on the value
of its enable signal. When enabled, the latch is transparent; the Q
output will equal the value of the D input. When the enable is
inactive, the Q output will not change, even if D changes. Since
the value (1 or 0) of the enable signal determines the output, the
latch is said to be level sensitive.
A typical D flip-flop operates similarly, except that the Q output
changes only when the enable changes state, typically the transition
from 0 to 1. Since the output can only change upon the 0-to-1 edge
of the enable (or, more appropriately, clock) input, such a device
is said to be edge triggered.
A D flip-flop is logically equivalent to 2 D latches, with the Q
of the first latch connected to the D of the second latch. The
first latch is transparent when the clock input is low. The second
latch is transparent when the clock is high. Changes to the output
of the 2nd latch (the Q output of the flip-flop) can only occur when
the clock goes from low to high.
