4kHz State Machine

The state machine is responsible for computing DAC setpoints (among other things, this involves scaling according to the calibration, which is a topic not discussed here) and for processing ADC readbacks (writing history buffers and running decimation filters for slow readbacks).

The state machine is always driven by the 4kHz (Frev/320) timestamp / clock facility (sidenote: should this clock signal be lost, the software tries to switch to an internal 4kHz clock mode - global synchronization will be lost, however).
