This text is an introduction to basic principles of digital electronics and a practical guide to techniques used by designers of both board-level and VLSI digital systems. It contains a presentation of the basic concepts of digital circuits and switching theory, focusing on the goals and techniques used in the majority of practical digital designs today. Emphasis is given to structured logic elements and design techniques that apply to both discrete MSI/LSI design and VLSI chip design. In addition to these basic principles, the text presents examples and practical advice.

This newly revised book blends academic precision and practical experience in an authoritative introduction to basic principles of digital design and practical requirements in both board-level and VLSI systems. With over twenty years of experience in both industrial and university settings, the author covers the most widespread logic design practices, while building a solid foundation of theoretical and engineering principles for readers to use as they go forward in this fast moving field.
NEW—Early coverage of modern CMOS logic families—Includes low voltage and LVCMOS/LVTTL.
NEW—Coverage of Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs) and Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
Provides the general background needed for associated CPLD- and FPGA-based lab courses.
NEW—Earlier introduction of HDL-based digital design.
HDL concepts can be used throughout the course.
NEW—HDL coverage and examples—Includes VHDL as well as ABEL.
VHDL is an industry-standard language that also provides a good foundation for Verilog if required.
NEW—Programming examples written in C rather than Pascal.
NEW—Faster progression through non-automated methods—Such as Karnaugh maps and state-machine synthesis.
While these are used to illustrate some basic concepts, more emphasis is given to the methods and tools that are actually used on the job.
NEW—Description of automated methods including simulation and synthesis.
NEW—More and larger design examples.
More opportunity to "learn by example."
NEW—Drill problems and exercises.
Easy-to-follow, practical writing style and extensive use of illustrations.
High-quality, user-friendly color production.
