Abstract: Direct mapping from Petri nets (PN) and Signal Transition Graphs (STG) avoids algorithmic complexity inherent in logic synthesis methods based on optimal state encoding. However, it may lead to inefficient implementation, both in size and performance, due to excessive use of state-holding elements.This paper presents a set of tools that optimise logic produced by the direct mapping technique by means of: exposure of outputs, detection and elimination of redundant places. Output exposure is an approach to exp…
