For one- to two-semester Computer Science and Engineering courses in logic and digital design.
Featuring a strong emphasis on the fundamentals underlying contemporary logic design using hardware description languages, synthesis, and verification, this book focuses on the ever-evolving applications of basic computer design concepts with strong connections to real-world technology.
Balance of Hardware Description Language coverage – VHDL, Verilog, or none.
Strong connections to real-word technology–Discusses SRAM, DRAM, and synchronous DRAM technologies.
Provides solid digital system design fundamentals while accomplishing a gradual, bottom-up development of fundamentals.
Companion Website–12 reading supplements consisting of new material and deleted material from prior editions, code for all VHDL and Verilog examples, 25% of the problem solutions, and projection originals for all figures and major tables.
New to This Edition
Approximately 40% of end of chapter problems are new or revised.
Many new real-world examples and problems have been added.
Example and problems are then used to illustrate the procedures for arriving at a description of a solution that can serve as input to CAD tools
Greater emphasis on formulation stage of design process -- recognizing computerized design tools now perform many of the subsequent steps.
Significant reorganization of content to better fit course topics
Updates to technological content to keep material current
Input-Output and Communication
High Performance CPU Concepts
A brief description and illustration of the Espresso algorithm as an example of a pragmatic approach to 2-leve circuit optimization.
