For introductory courses on digital design in an Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science department.

A clear and accessible approach to teaching the basic tools, concepts, and applications of digital design.

A modern update to a classic, authoritative text, Digital Design, 6th Edition teaches the fundamental concepts of digital design in a clear, accessible manner. The text presents the basic tools for the design of digital circuits and provides procedures suitable for a variety of digital applications. Like the previous editions, this edition of Digital Design supports a multimodal approach to learning, with a focus on digital design, regardless of language. Recognizing that three public-domain languages–Verilog, VHDL, and SystemVerilog–all play a role in design flows for today’s digital devices, the 5th Edition offers parallel tracks of presentation of multiple languages, but allows concentration on a single, chosen language.
