Digital Systems, 11/E presents a comprehensive and modern approach to digital electronics, plus thorough preparation for advanced study of digital systems and computer and microcontroller hardware. It first introduces the basic building blocks of digital systems, and the easy AHDL hardware description language. Then, step by step, it covers increasingly challenging topics, including a detailed introduction to VHDL. For each topic, clear explanations of purpose and fundamentals are provided, followed by technical description methods such as truth tables, algebraic expressions, timing diagrams, and logic symbols. This edition adds more focus on megafunctions; a complete systems project management case study; updated memory coverage; more worked examples and figures; new terminology, and much more.

Authors Tocci and Widmer have again created a digital electronics text with a wide variety of tools and topics that provides the necessary foundation in digital electronics that students need for future studies.
NEW! The eighth edition features more coverage of programmable logic devices (PLDs). This technology is rapidly replacing the use of conventional small- and medium-scale ICs in modern digital systems. Interspersed throughout the text where appropriate, this PLD coverage offers students an alternative means of implementing digital logic circuits, from the simplest gates to complex systems.
NEW! Each text is packaged with two free CD-ROMs. The first CD-ROM contains the entire library of Texas Instruments Logic Data Sheets, including all TTL series, CMOS, and bus interface parts. The second CD-ROM contains:
UPDATED! Topics that apply to digital signal processing (DSP), a very rapidly advancing technology in electronics, have been expanded and improved.
UPDATED! Digital logic technology coverage and terms often encountered in personal computer literature have been updated and improved.
UPDATED! Students have free access to the text's Companion Website at http://www.prenhall.com/tocci . This site contains review questions for each chapter, which help students test their understanding of the material.About the Author:
