In this puzzle, you will learn how to detect an instantaneous change in a signal.
In the world of digital circuits, these changes will correspond to either a rising edge (i.e. signal going from low to high) or a falling edge (i.e. signal going from high to low). Detecting rising and falling edges is extremely important for digital circuits. For example, did a user just press a button? Did they just release a button?
So how are edge detect circuits built? Before diving into the schematic, let’s think about the problem we are trying to solve:
With this information, check out the rising edge detect circuit below. Can you figure out how to build the falling edge detect circuit to light the blue LED?
you might need to add a gate
