Abstract?An algorithm, which determines whether or not an arbitrary sequential machine can be realized using a set of equal-length shift registers, is developed. When realization is possible, a basis for state assignment is also given.
Index Terms?Equal-length registers, multiclock operation, sequential machine, shift-register memory, state assignment, transition constraints.
