I would like to make a circuit with one lever input and two outputs. When the user flips the lever, I would like for the one output that's ON to immediately turn OFF, while the other output which is OFF takes a second or two to turn ON. Both outputs should behave the same way such that when the lever is flipped again, the exact same thing happens, but with the outputs swapped. I'm currently accomplishing this with two AND gates like so:

But I'm looking for a much more compact way of doing it. Any thoughts?

Is a 4 tick delay enough then, or would you like more of a delay? – fredley Dec 12 '12 at 17:18
A simple way to compact the horizontal space taken up by this mechanism would be to put the two and gates on top of each other – fredley Dec 12 '12 at 17:27

This is a very compact solution. The torches on the right are the two outputs.

Beautiful. Thank you. – daltonclaybrook Dec 12 '12 at 20:11
Very impressive – fredley Dec 13 '12 at 11:04

I made a 3x5 one. It is extremely compact and effective. Screenshot of circuit
