Flashcards in FSM Deck (4)
What does FSM stand for?
Finite state machines
Define finite state machines
Model of computation used to design computer programs and sequential logic circuits.
It is not an actual machine. It is an abstract model of how a machine reacts to an external event.
The machine can be in one of a finite number of states and changes from one state to the next when triggered by some condition or input.
How many states can an FSM be in at once?
The FSM can only be in one state at a time.
