The controller state assignment methodology proposed here features two improvements over existing methods. First, a larger set of predictive minimizations in the control flowgraph is performed. Secondly, the embedding phase uses a new theory of intersecting cubes in the Boolean lattice. Practical results using the VLSI Technology Logic-Synthesizer on both(More)
The state assignment of controllers presented here aims at preparing further minimizations of the next-state and output logic implementation on standard cells. This is done by detecting situations in the control flowgraph leading to these further minimizations, deducing constraints on the state assignment and finding a solution on the hypercube satisfying(More)
The HP 54754A differential TDR plug-in in conjunction with the HP 54750 digital oscilloscope or the HP 83480 digital communications analyzer significantly improves the speed and ease of making critical measurements in today's high-speed systems. With the advent of higher-speed systems, the issue of signal fidelity has become increasingly important. To(More)
