Please help me to design a flip flop using 555 timer. It is college assignment.

Hi there,

The missing question here is: "What kind of flip flop" ?

There are several types of flip flops, to name a few:
RS type, D type, T type, JK type.

The RS type for example would be simpler to do with a 555 while the T type (toggle flip flop) would be harder to implement. So it would be good if you can tell us or find out yourself if you dont know yet. If "any" type is acceptable then i would recommend doing the RS type, although the T type would be much more interesting and probably gain you some brownie points with the teacher :)
