We present a new method for the synthesis for logical initializability of synchronous state machines. The goal is to produce a gate-level implementation that is initializable when simulated by a 3-valued (0,1,X) simulator. We build on the approach of Cheng and Agrawal (1989,92) who constrain state assignment to translate functional initializability into logic initializability. We propose an alternative method which is guaranteed safe and not as conservative. In addition, we propose necessary and sufficient conditions on 2-level and multi-level logic synthesis to insure 3-valued simulation succeeds
