Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the difference between Mealy and Moore Machine.
Comparison and Difference Between Mealy and Moore Machine
- In Mealy machine, O/Ps depend on the present state and present I/Ps. In Moore machine, O/Ps depend only on the present state.
- In Mealy, the O/P change asynchronously with the enabling clock edge. Since the O/Ps change when the state changes, and the state change is synchronous with the enabling clock edge, O/Ps change synchronously with this clock edge in Moore machine.
- A counter is not a Mealy machine. A counter is a Moore machine
- A Mealy machine will have the same or fewer states than a Moore machine
