Standard methods for classification, analysis, and synthesis of sequential switching networks are inadequate for many networks which have edge-sensitive flip-flops as memory. A differential mode DM sequential machine is introduced as a model for such networks. Any network which can be modeled by a fundamental mode a synchronous FMA sequential machine can also be modeled by a DM machine, but the DM machine often requires fewer internal states. A DM machine can always be converted to a FMA machine, but usually the FMA model requires additional internal states. A general model for edge-sensitive flip-flops is defined from which an inhibited-toggle I-T flip-flop is derived. The I-T flip-flop, a general-purpose edge-sensitive flip-flop, has properties which result in logic savings for some network realizations. Edge-sensitive flip-flops are represented by two methods 1 FMA flow table models are developed for the I-T and other well-known types of flip-flops. These models show that edge-sensitive flip-flops generally have hidden internal states. 2 The terminal behavior of the flip-flops is described by means of difference operators. Several methods of analysis for DM networks are given. A general method for synthesis of sequential switching networks using I-T flip-flops is presented. The network is first represented by a DM table and flip-flop input equations are derived from this table. Author
