A new realization scheme is proposed for implementing sequential machines with nontrivial periods. The scheme is primarily based on state assignments related to cyclic partitions on internal states of a sequential machine. Operational linkages of cyclic partitions to the input-independent autonomous clocks of sequential machines are established. Special logic design and IC implementation advantages of the scheme are demonstrated in terms of input and/or state dependencies, logic complexities, and memory requirements of sequential machines.
Aperiodic submachines, autonomous clocks, cyclic partitions, parallel periodic realization, periodic submachines, periods of sequential machines, serial periodic realization, substitution property (SP) partitions.
