In this paper the problems associated with the minimal realization of synchronous sequential machines by unate cellular cascades have been studied. Given the sequential machine in the form of a flow table, a systematic procedure is followed to generate all the selectable sets. Compatible sets consisting of these selectable sets are next determined and the different secondary variables are assigned. The nested functional forms of the next-state expressions for these variables are finally established. The proposed method is very systematic and perfectly suited for machine processing.
