Sequential analysis refers to analyzing a sequential circuit in order to determine what the circuit does. Typically there are four steps: Write boolean expressions for the output function(s) and for the flip-flop inputs (the flip-flop excitation functions ). 1. Fill in the circuit's next-state table . This includes, for each current state and input combination, the next-state and the output(s) . 2. Draw a state diagram . This contains exactly the same information as the next-state table, but is in pictorial form. 3. Figure out what the circuit actually does! 4. The first three steps are "routine" because they are simply translating circuit information into a different form: no insight is needed. The last step can be hard: taking the information from the previous steps and

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
