A new Finite State Machine (FSM) partioning approach is proposed in this paper. A genetic algorithm (GA) is employed to search the optimal or near optimal solution. A new cost function is used to guide the optimisation. The proposed algorithm is implemented in C. A new design model is proposed to implement partioned sub-FSMs, which makes the existing monolithic FSM state assignment applicable to partioned FSMs. The experimental results show that the proposed approach can reduce power dissipation by up to 78%.
