Abstract:

The action of computer control systems on continuous time discrete stots processes can be accurately represented by asynchronous finite stote machines, and, in particular, a subclass of these machines termed simple asynchronous machines, or SAMs. To understand the role that practical signal processing constraints may play in characterizing SAM behavior, a simulator capable of incorporating such constraints has been written. The architecture of this simulator and examples of its use are presented.
