Description In this paper we show the derivation of a local segmented bus arbiter from a single segment bus arbiter. The arbiter is exten-ded to cater for requests coming from and going to external segment. The derivation demonstrates the capability of pre-serving correctness when considering an important hardware design decision. The operations are performed in the formal framework of Action Systems. Action Systems is a predicate transformer based method for modelling reactive systems. It has also been successfully applied to both asynchronous and synchronous hardware designs. 1
