From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   flip-flop
  
      A digital logic circuit that can be in one of two
      states which it switches (or "{toggles}") between under
      control of its inputs.   It can thus be considered as a one bit
      memory.   Three types of flip-flop are common: the {SR
      flip-flop}, the {JK flip-flop} and the {D-type flip-flop} (or
      {latch}).
  
      Early literature refers to the "Eccles-Jordan circuit" and the
      "Eccles-Jordan binary counter", using two {vacuum tubes} as
      the active (amplifying) elements for each {bit} of information
      storage.   Later implementations using {bipolar transistors}
      could operate at up to 20 million state transitions per second
      as early as 1963.
