Abstract: Synchronous finite state machines are very important for digital sequential systems. Among other important aspects, they represent a powerful way for synchronising hardware components so that these components may cooperate adequately in the fulfilment of the main objective. In this paper, we propose to use an evolutionary methodology inspired from quantum computation to yield a concise and efficient evolvable hardware that implements the state machine control logic. The evolved circuits are promising.
