Computerphile has an interesting video on how basic components of digital logic like flip flops and latches work. This is actually the second video in a series on how computer memory works so you might want to check out the first video for some background too. Overall it’s a great primer on digital logic that shows how boolean operators can be combined to build higher level components, like a latch that can store 1 bit of memory. These types of circuits are repeated hundreds of millions and billions of times in the silicon of modern computer memory chips!
