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 university and industrial settings, John Wakerly has directly taught thousands of engineering students, indirectly taught tens of thousands through his books, and directly designed real digital systems representing tens of millions of dollars of revenue.
The book covers the fundamental building blocks of digital design across several levels of abstraction, from CMOS gates to hardware design languages. Important functions such as gates, decoders, multiplexers, flip-flops, registers, and counters are discussed at each level.
New edition features include de-emphasis of manual turn-the-crank procedures and MSI design, and earlier coverage of PLDs, FPGAs, and hardware design languages to get maximum leverage from modern components and software tools. HDL coverage now includes VHDL as well as ABEL.
