From the Back Cover
This is a modern revision of the classic digital design textbook. The book teaches the basic tools for the design of digital circuits in a clear, easily accessible manner. New to This Edition:
•Nine sections on Verilog Hardware Description Language (HDL) inserted in discrete sections, allowing the material to be covered or skipped as desired. The Verilog HDL presentation is at a suitable level for beginning students who are learning digital circuits for the first time.
•Reorganized material on combinational circuits is now covered in a single chapter.
•The emphasis in the sequential circuits chapters is now on design with D flip-flops instead of JK and SR flip-flops.
•The material on memory and programmable logic is now consolidated in one chapter.
•Chapter 8 consists mostly of new material and now covers digital design in the Register Transfer Level (P) FL), preparing the reader for more advanced design projects and further Verilog HDL studies.
•A new section in Chapter 11 supplements the laboratory experiments with HDL experiments. These unable the reader to check the circuits designed in the laboratory by means of hardware components and/or by HDL simulation.
•Text accompanied by Verilog simulator software—SynaptiCAD’s VeriLogger Pro evaluation version, a Verilog simulation environment that combines all of the features of a traditional Verilog simulator with a powerful graphical test vector generator. Fast model testing in VeriLogger Pro allows the reader to perform bottom-up testing of every model in a design. All of the HDL examples in the book can be found on the CD-ROM.
•A Companion Website includes resources for instructors and students such as transparency masters of all figures in the book, all HDL code examples from the book, a Verilog tutorial, tutorials on using the VeriLogger Pro software, and more.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
Digital design is concerned with the design of digital electronic circuits. Digital circuits are employed in the design and construction of systems such as digital computers, data communication, digital recording, and many other applications that require digital hardware. This book presents the basic tools for the design of digital circuits and provides the fundamental concepts used in the design of digital systems. It is suitable for use as a textbook in an introductory course in an electrical engineering, computer engineering, or computer science curriculum.
Many of the features in this third edition remain the same as those of the previous editions except for rearrangement of the material or changes in emphasis due to changes in the technology. Combinational circuits are covered in one chapter instead of two, as in the previous edition. The sequential circuit chapter emphasizes design with D flip-flops instead of JK and SR flip-flops. The material on memory and programmable logic are combined in one chapter. Chapter 8 has been revised to include register transfer level (RTL) design procedures.
The main revision in the third edition is the inclusion of sections on Verilog Hardware Description Language (HDL). The HDL material is inserted in separate sections so it can be covered or skipped as desired. The presentation is at a suitable level for beginning students that are learning digital circuits and a hardware description language at the same time.
◦Digital circuits are introduced in Chapters 1 through 3 with an introduction to Verilog HDL in Section 3-9.
◦Further discussion of HDL occurs in Section 4-11 following the study of combinational circuits.
◦Sequential circuits are covered in Chapters 5 and 6 with corresponding HDL examples in Sections 5-5 and 6-6.
◦The HDL description of memory is presented in Section 7-2.
◦The RTL symbols used in Verilog HDL are introduced in Sections 8-2.
◦Examples of HDL descriptions in the RTL and structural levels are provided in Section# 8-5 and 8-8.
◦Section 10-10 covers switch-level modeling corresponding to CMOS circuits.
◦Section 11-19 supplements the hardware experiments of Chapter 11 with HDL experiments. Now the circuits designed in the laboratory can be checked by means of hardware components and/or by HDL simulation.
