Details of multiple tasks * All 24 bits at three ports, Port_1, Port_2 and Port_5 are in reset state (0s) or reset on power-up.Besides being attached to mechanical subsystems, each of these ports give digital input bits to the ACVS being designed and receives the system output bits. * Mechanical subsystems also provide a facility, which helps when there are two or more coins of the same type. Thus, there can be a max of 8 total different points at each port. * Use of a semaphore, SemAmtCount is such that within a
