A New Paradigm for Dichotomy-based Constrained Encoding
One essential step in sequential logic synthesis consists of finding a state
encoding that meets some requirements, such as optimal implementation, or
correctness in the case of asynchronous FSMs. Dichotomy-based constrained
encoding is more general than other constrained encoding frameworks, but it is
also more difficult to solve. We introduce a new formalization, called twin
graph coloring, which leads to original exact and heuristic algorithms.
Experimental results show that the resulting exact solver outperforms the
