6.2 System Generator for DSP - Can a reset pin be created for any of the State Machine blocks?

Description

General Description: 

None of the State Machine blocks in System Generator have a reset pin. Is it possible to create a reset pin so that I can reset the State Machine to a known state?

Solution

A separate reset signal cannot be explicitly created for the State Machine blocks, because there is no explicit reset on the Memory blocks in System Generator.  

 

Therefore, the reset must be incorporated into the State Machine design. This will equate to a 1-bit wider input bus (which is the reset signal); the state table will incorporate the reset signal as it would any other input signal.
