    I think you are referring to a toggle flip flop, the input to these flip flops are usually labeled CLK. Most flip flop chips have it. Be sure to ground the unused inputs of any chip you want to try out this way.

    Most simple flip flop chips are two flip flops in one package. You can also get packages prewired as a 4 bit counter (aka mod4). I wouldn't doubt that there are bigger, though I haven't looked in a long time.

    Hello,

    A T-flip-flop is a deriviate of the JK-flip-flop.
    See this page for the explanation:

    As far as I can tell the clock input is a standard feature. While not universal it is pretty close.

    The 4027 is pretty typical as is the 7474.

    Just to be picky, a 7474 is a D flip flop, but will toggle if you tie the Q^ output to the D input.

    So it is. I was thinking of the 7472.

    You might be able to find a chip that does exactly what you want in one part.
