Java Circuit Simulation Workaround ▾

Due to recent changes by Oracle, java applets have become difficult to run in the browser. To mitigate the troubles, Oracle has provided the following websites to help users troubleshoot: http://java.com/en/download/help/enable_browser.xml and https://www.java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp

Even after following the above instructions, loading applets may still show warning concerning “unsigned application” and “unknown publisher”. For Teahlab in particular, these warnings are due to the fact that we have opted not to pay a third party such as Verisign to sign our applets. Any warning that comes up when you try to run our applets should emphasize that our applets will always run with “limited access”, which is Oracle’s way of letting you know that teahlab doesn’t do anything on your computer except running the circuits you see: in other words, our applets are safe to run.

Sincerely,

The Teahlab Team

VIDEO TUTORIALS: The Gated/Clocked RS Nand Latch
by Isai Damier

The Gated Set-Reset Latch (also known as a Clocked SR Latch) is merely a Set-Reset Latch with a doorway. And we put a door on a set-reset latch for the same reasons we might put a door on anything else: to control access. With a simple set reset latch, the input signals are free to come in whenever they want. But if we add a door at the entrance, then we effectively control the entire circuit.
