    Hey all,
    I'm relatively new to digital design. We are reviewing Finite state machines and today I just heard the term one-hot encoding. What is the deal with "encoding" a FSM and what is one-hot encoding? I'm doing worksheets and I have a 4 state fsm, and one of the problems is "find an optimized circuit implement usind D FF's, NAND gates, inverters. Any idea on how to translate an FSM into this?

    Thanks!

    Have a look at this short description of "one-hot encoding" in wikipedia.org. There are a couple of links there that may be worth exploring.
