  • A sequence detector is a sequential state machine. In a Mealy machine, output depends on the present state and the external input (x). Hence in the diagram, the output is written outside the states, along with inputs. The state diagram of a Mealy machine for a 1010 detector is:

  • The state table for the above diagram:

  • State assignments: Let $S_0$ = 00

$S_1$ = 01

$S_2$ = 10

$S_3$ = 11

The above state table becomes:

  • Four states will require two flip flops. Consider two D flip flops. Their excitation table is shown below.

if i design it using 5 states, is the method wrong in case of mealy FSM?
