FSMDesigner4 - Development of a Tool for Interactive Design and Hardware Description Language Generation of Finite State Machines

Diploma Thesis by Frank Lemke


This diploma thesis presents the development of a tool for interactive design of finite state machines. Furthermore, an implementation for the generation of hardware description language code of finite state machines (FSMs) is included. The resulting application is called FSMDesigner4. This work is aimed to create an application with modern graphical user interface for designing finite state machines including states, transitions, conditions, hierarchies, links, joins, and global transitions. Additionally, several ways of manipulating the FSM data are provided via non modal widgets, context menus, and data tables.
