The next section discusses devices that are edge-sensitive. Flip-Flops Early types of flip-flops were master-slave, pulse-triggered devices that had no data-lockout circuitry and caused a storage error if improperly used due to 1s and 0s catching. To prevent 1s and 0s catching, datalockout (also called variable-skew) circuitry was added to some master-slave flip-flop types. Due to the improved design features and popularity of edge-triggered flip-flops, master-slave flip-flops are not recommended for newer designs and, in some cases, have been made obsolete by manufacturers, making them difficult to obtain even for repair parts.

Optical turn-off times are also limited by the RC time constant.
