It was desired to develop an algorithm for the automated translation of finite slate machines from state table form to optimized VHDL form. To do this, algorithms arc needed for reducing the state machine to simplest form, making state assignments, producing minimal logic equations to represent the state machine, and producing VHDL code which describes the intended circuit. Various such algorithms were examined and a prototype program written to perform this translation.
