Appropriate for a first or second course in digital logic design. 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 students to use as they go forward in this fast moving field.
Features and Benefits
NEW! Early coverage of modern CMOS logic families Includes low voltage and LVCMOS/LVTTL.
Students learn the technology they'll use in the lab and on the job.
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. Most computer engineering students are familiar with C.
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-Includes simulation and synthesis. Students can relate basic principles to a wide variety of automated tools.
NEW! More and larger design examples. More opportunity to "learn by example".
NEW! Drill problems and exercises. Always helpful in core courses.
NEW! CD-ROM Includes the complete Xilinx Foundation 1.5 Student Edition, including schematic entry, ABEL, VHDL, and Verilog compilers, simulator, and documentation. Students with a PC can create and simulate designs using a high-quality set of commercial tools, and thereby learn the practical side of digital design first-hand.
NEW! Instructor's websiteIncludes- Individual, importable files for all figures and tables; drill and exercise solutions; supplementary exercise solutions; sample exams and solutions. Instant access to important instructor materials and updates.
NEW! Student's web site Includes- Source files for all ABEL, VHDL, and C examples; foundation 1.5 schematics for large examples; supplementary exercises; updated references and web links; appendices including "Electrical Circuits Review" and IEEE Standard Symbols; and up-to-date errata.
Instant access to useful supplementary materials and updates.
Easy-to-follow, practical writing style and extensive use of illustrations. Students will actually read the book. High-quality, user-friendly color production. Easy to locate key concepts and definitions.

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.
