For an introduction to digital systems in two- and four-year programs in technology, engineering, and computer science. While a background in basic electronics is helpful, the majority of the material requires no electronics training.
Tocci and Widmer use a block diagram approach to basic logic operations, to enable students to have a firm understanding of logic principles before they study the electrical characteristics of the logic ICs. For each new device or circuit, the authors describe the principle of the operation, give thorough examples, and then show its actual application.

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:
NEAL WIDMER (West Lafayette, IN) is a Professor of electronics at Purdue University.
