State Diagrams/Tables

  1. Sep 19, 2010 #1
    My textbook, Computer System Architecture, by M. Morris Mano, describes state tables/diagrams. After reading over them a few times I am still struggling to understand the concept or actually how they work. For example if you have two flip flops, Da and Db with two inputs, x and y, with one output z how would your make the table?

    Da = x(not)y + xA
    Db = x(not)B + xA
    z = B

    I do know that the table starts with a present state, which i think means Da? but I get lost from there. Any help will be great. Thank you!
