## SEQUENCE DETECTOR

Beginning with
the simple theory about Sequence Detector. A sequence detector an algorithm
which detects a sequence within a given set of bits. Of course the length of
total bits must be greater than sequence that has to be detected.

Sequence
detector basically is of two types –

a. Overlapping

b. Non Overlapping

In overlapping
some of the last bits can also be used for the start of detection of next
sequence within the given bits.

For Example Let
the sequence be 11011 and given bits 1101101101101101

Now lets work on
overlapping concept.

We have 5 bits
here in 11011 hence we will have 5 states. Let em be A/B/C/D and E.

Initially pstate
will be A.

Now

1. Incoming bit is 1 (from

__1__101101101101101) and it matches with first bit of sequence hence jump to next B. Requirement(1011)
2. Incoming bit is 1 (from 1

__1__01101101101101)and it matches with first bit of requirement hence jump to state C. Requirement (011)
3. Incoming bit is 0 (from 11

__0__1101101101101) and it matches with first bit of requirement hence jump to state D. Requirement (11)
4. Incoming bit is 1 (from 110

__1__101101101101) and it matches with first bit of requirement hence jump to state E. Requirement (1)
5. Incoming bit is 0 (from 1101

__1__01101101101) and it matches with first bit of requirement hence jump to state A. Requirement (). Output is 1 as we have found a sequence
To be more clear here is a table-

Notice that state C has 11 and requires 011. Now if it receives 1
instead of zero then instead of resetting and going back to A it will remain at
C because C has 11 which can be used for starting of

__11__011 . This is called Overlapping. Similarly after state E we have restart to detect sequence then instead of starting again from A we will jump to C since it already has some bits which can serve as starting point. Remember always jump to that state which can provide**maximum**starting bits of sequence . Here B has 1 which can also serve but it isn’t maximum.
Ok again for better understanding we have 11011 then

1101

__1__can serve as starting bit i.e state B
110

__11__can serve as starting bits i.e state C
11

__011__cannot serve as starting bits since sequence doesn’t start with 011
1

__1011__cannot serve as starting bits since sequence doesn’t start with 1011
Here is the state diagram for this sequence. I am pretty sure you must have understood Overlapping till now. If No! you can contact or this state diagram should suffice.

Let's go step by step

(A) Idle state is A waiting for 1 which if it gets will jump to B else will remain to A

(B) If receives 1 will jump to C else will jup back to idle A

(C) If receives 1 will remain at itself as it has 11 to start with however if it receives 0 then it will jump to state D

(D) If receives 0 will jump to state A else will jump to state E

(E) If receives 0 will jump to A else will jump to Cand output will be 1 which means that a sequence has been detected.

Now how many FFs do we require to make this machine. We have 5bits here so

by using this equation we can find

2

^{x-1}<5<2^{x}
Thus we get X = 3 hence 3 FFs

To design in verilog here is the code for both Overlap and NonOverlap-

ReplyDeleteHey, Sorry your comment got deleted out accidentally My iPad isn't working well.

DeleteWell i is just a single step counter to store the data in temp first and then perform operations on it. We need to have a reserved copy to perform operation.

You can however do this in initial block also. It isn't compulsory to use i and an always block.

Can you please send the code for moore sequence detector for sequence-0111010

ReplyDeleteCan you please send the code for sequence -0111010
