various things are time critical
Could you explain a little more about using a 555 to trigger pulses
would that switch itself not need de-bouncing
If I understand things correctly, is it only the clock pin that needs de-bouncing
as the pins need to be kept HIGH for the relevant cycle and then set LOW again
Quoteas the pins need to be kept HIGH for the relevant cycle and then set LOW againWhich pins?The only one that matters is the clock and it's edge triggered, so whether you give it a short high pulse or a short low pulse as far as the eye is concerned the SR will update the same way.
Presumably that sort of information is included in an ICs datasheet?
