sequential logic

sequential logic

A digital logic function made of primitive logic gates (AND, OR, NOT, etc.) in which the output values depend not only on the values currently being presented to its inputs, but also on previous input values. The output depends on a "sequence" of input values. Contrast with combinational logic.

This use case also is an example of using the PAELib to describe a circuit that contains both combinational and sequential logic. The less area demanding implementation was assembled on a prototyping board enabling us to further evaluate the PAELlib, in term of power estimation accuracy.
"For example," Jiang says, "we demonstrated sequential logic by designing a box that, after exposure to a suitable solvent, can autonomously open and then close after a predefined time.
Through this, we can avoid common issues with parallel computing, such as race conditions, while also optimizing the execution of the sequential logic in parallel.

The CLC peripherals on the PIC10F(LF)32X and PIC1XF{LF)150X MCUs enable software control of combinational and sequential logic, which increases the on-chip interconnection of peripherals and l/Os, thereby reducing external components, saving code space and adding functionality.
