I'm converting assembly code to C and there is a lot of branches/jumps (it is a big state machine). When rewriting the different states would you use the goto keyword or try to rewwrite all with if, if-else?

Hi all, I was just wondering if any one knows of any open source state machine and message passing framework for embedded applications. I have worked with good tools like Rhapsody and state flow and find the pattern to be very efficient for embedded systems. but these tools are extremely expensive , and I am looking for some cheaper or open source alternative for personal use. so far i ...

Hello, Most books on digital design discuss Gray codes. However, most of the focus is on generating these codes, rather than detailing their uses. I read the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray_code, but it doesn't provide enough in-depth information of the uses of Gray code in hardware. I know Gray codes are used for: 1) Encoding state machine states. Why is it an ...

Hi all, I'm trying to sample the AVR's ADC on 3 channels at 8kHz, 8kHz and 16kHz respectively. I've set up a 32kHz interrupt on an 8MHz clock using timer0 (prescale=1, count to 250), and within the timer interrupt handler, I have a state machine which samples ch-1, ch-2, ch-3, ch-2. The code is at http://www.0x0000ff.com/src/main.c if you're interested... To test it, I put a variable re...

I would REALLY like to evaluate CHSM: Concurrent Hierarchical Finite State Machine, but despite my best efforts I cannot build this from source. I'm a user, not a developer. The author has made it pretty clear he won't provide a binary, so how/where do I get one? I don't know where to even ask the question as the sourceforge project forums seem empty. Can anybody advise how tp get a bina...

Traditionally, graphical UML tools haven't particularly caught on in the embedded space, because too often they fail to pull their own weight. Many developers find themselves fighting such tools at every step of the way: from drawing the diagrams to trying to live in a straight jacket of the generated code. The new, free QM tool from Quantum Leaps is different, because it was designed from the...

Hi: I've developed a machine which implements a real-time dynamically reconfigurable state machine. This is done by having two sets of state transition tables in memory, ping-pong style, then synchronously switching from one state machine data structure to the other when it is appropriate to do so. Transitions are done in 2-4us on a TMS320F2812 DSC. The output of the state machine is ...

Select option -> Generate Code -> Build -> Build fails. Select different option -> Generate Code -> Build -> Build fails. Try yet another option -> Generate Code -> Build -> Build fails.

I'm discussing Finite State Machine (FSM) design in logic with some hardware folks and I thought I'd ask what a software community thinks. Moore - outputs are only a function of the state. Mealy - outputs are a function of both inputs and state. So considering this issue, it seems it comes down to as Wikipedia says, "In Mealy machines, input change can cause output change

Sinelabore generates compact and readable C code from UML statecharts. There are a number of ways to fine-tune the generated code by setting configuration parameters. C code can now be generated according to these patterns: Object pattern: Instance related data is always grouped in a struct. All state machine related functions operate on this data struct. Opaque object pattern: This is similar...
