The matching probability P(ο/$\lambda$), of the signal sequence(ο) observed for a finite time interval with a HMM (Hidden Markov Model $\lambda$) indicates the probability that signal comes from the given model. By utilizing the fact that the probability represents matching score of the observed signal with the model we can recognize an unknown signal pattern by comparing the magnitudes of the matching probabilities with respect to the known models. Because the algorithm however uses floating point variables during the computing process hardware implementation of the algorithm requires floating point units. This paper proposes an integer algorithm which uses positive integer numbers rather than float point ones to compute the matching probability so that we can economically realize the algorithm into hardware. The algorithm makes the model parameters integer numbers by multiplying positive constants and prevents from divergence of data through the normalization of variables at each step. The final equation of matching probability is composed of constant terms and a variable term which contains logarithm operations. A scheme to make the log conversion table smaller is also presented. To analyze the qualitive characteristics of the proposed algorithm we attatch simulation result performed on two groups of 10 hypothetic models respectively and inspect the statistical properties with repect to the model order the magnitude of scaling constants and the effect of the observation length.
