Task 4-1: Design of Synchronous Sequential Machines

Design #1 (Mealy machine): What assumptions did you make in the design of this machine?________ ____________________________________________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Create a state definition table here that describes in plain English what each state in your machine means and what binary values you have assigned to represent each state.

Create tables here to display your state diagrams, state transition tables and Karnaugh maps used in your design process. (You can do this by hand if you wish.)

Cut and paste your Logisim design#1 (Mealy machine) circuit here:

Design #2 (Moore machine): What assumptions did you make in the design of this machine? _____________________________________________________________________________________

Create tables here to display your state diagrams, state transition tables and Karnaugh maps used in your design process. (You can do this by hand if you wish.)

Cut and paste your Logisim design #2 (Moore machine) circuit here:

Demonstrate that both of your circuits meet the completed design specification to the laboratory assistants and have the TAs apply a grade here and on the grade sheet and have them sign their name.

Using the guidelines in the laboratory manual, list your criteria and associated weights here:

Criteria Weight

Task 4-4: Apply the Criteria to Pick the Best Design

Describe how you applied the criteria and weighting system in the above task to pick the best design.

Which design is better based on your criteria and weighting system?__________________________

Demonstrate to a laboratory assistant that one of your designs works according to your completed specification.

## Self-Assessment Worksheet

Put an ‘X’ in the table below indicating how strongly you agree or disagree that the outcomes of the assigned tasks were achieved. Use ‘5’ to indicate that you ‘strongly agree’ and ‘1’ to indicate that you ‘strongly disagree’. Use ‘NA’, Not Applicable, when the tasks you performed did not elicit this outcome. Credit will be given for including this worksheet with your lab report. However, your responses will not be graded, they are for your instructor’s information only.

Table __: Self-Assessment of Outcomes for Hardware Lab 5: Capstone Design Project.

 After completing the assigned tasks and report I am able to: 5 4 3 2 1 NA Use classical design techniques (i.e., state diagrams, state transition tables, and Karnaugh Maps), to design a synchronous sequential machine starting with a functional specification. Make assumptions to complete an incomplete functional specification. Write a complete functional specification. Build, and debug a synchronous sequential machine. Develop reasonable engineering criteria for comparing different designs. Apply engineering criteria to select a ‘best’ design.

Write below any suggestions you have for improving this laboratory exercise so that the stated learning outcomes are achieved.

Even if you have not used the design techniques taught in class, the machine you arrive at will fall into either the Mealy Machine or Moore machine class.
