Modeling Finite State Machines

  • Brock J. LaMeres


In this chapter, we will look at modeling finite state machines (FSMs). An FSM is one of the most powerful circuits in a digital system because it can make decisions about the next output based on both the current and past inputs. Finite state machines are modeled using the constructs already covered in this book. In this chapter, we will look at the widely accepted three-process model for designing a FSM.
