Modern FPGAs contain on-chip synchronous embedded memory blocks (SEMBs), these memory blocks can be used to implement control units, when not used as on-chip memory. In this paper, we explore the mapping of Finite State Machines (FSMs) into the SEMBs for power and area minimization. We have shown the SEMB based implementation of the FSMs and compared it with conventional Flip-Flop (FF) based implementation. The proposed implementation of the FSMs consumes less power and has lower area and… CONTINUE READING
