This book is an undergraduate level textbook presenting a thorough discussion of state−of−the−art digital devices and circuits. It supplements our Electronic Devices and Amplifier Circuits, ISBN 0−9709511−7−5. It is self−contained; begins with the basics and ends with the latest developments of the digital technology. The intent is to prepare the reader for advanced digital circuit design and programming the powerful Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs), and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
The prerequisites for this text are just basic high−school math; Accordingly, it can be read and understood by trade−school, community college, and 4−year university students. It is ideal for self−study.
The author and contributors make no claim to originality of content or of treatment, but have taken care to present definitions, statements of physical laws, theorems, and problems.
This is an refined revision of the first edition. The most notable change is the inclusion of several Simulink models in Chapter 7 and subsequent chapters.
