Single-Channel and Multichannel Finite-State Machines
November 1970 (vol. 19 no. 11)
pp. 1073-1078
A. Gill, IEEE
This paper is concerned with the transformation of a single-channel (series-operated) finite-state machine into a multichannel (parallel-operated) machine, and conversely. It is shown that every single-channel machine has a multichannel analog with the same number of states. A multichannel machine has a single-channel analog if and only if a so-called "prefix condition" is satisfied. Algorithms are given for constructing both types of analogs with the minimum number of states.
Index Terms:
Bandwidth reduction, computation speedup, finitestate machines, multichannel machines, parallel processing, serial processing, single-channel machines.
