Universal Modular Trees: A Design Procedure
January 1978 (vol. 27 no. 1)
pp. 53-63
R.A. Thompson, Department of Electrical Engineering, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
An alternative design procedure is presented for the implementation of finite-state Moore machines as universal modular trees (UMT's). A machine property is shown to provide a design goal in the tree depth. Design specification is made heuristically by labeling transitions on a shift register state diagram. Programming of feedback and output trees is accomplished with a template tree. The procedure is felt to be more prone to reaching minimal tree depth and more expository of design choices (an aid in fault reconfiguration) than previous design procedures.
