Moore or Mealy model

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Moore and Mealy models are the basic two models of state machines as defined in the literature. To understand the differences between them the actions (outputs) must be defined and bound to state changes. The technical note “Moore or Mealy model?” discusses both models and shows that the optimal solution is achieved when features of both models are used in a mixed model. Although the concepts of these two models are useful when performing certain theoretical studies, they are also interesting for software developers, and StateWORKS makes the use of a mixed model easy and effective.
