Difference between Latch and Flip-Flop

Latch:

Latches are the sequential logic circuits that designed using logic gates. It used to store binary information. These are level triggered and thus operate when they are enabled.

Difference between Latch and Flip-Flop

Flip-Flop:

A flip-flop is a binary cell capable of storing one bit of information. It has two outputs, one for the normal value and one for the complement value of the bit stored in it. A flip-flop maintains a binary state until directed by a clock pulse to switch states.
