The Ideal Text for Understanding Digital Design!
Hingham, MA, November 2005: Charles River Media announces Digital Design
>From Gates to Intelligent Machines, an essential text intended for both
beginners in need of a comprehensive introduction to digital design and
practicing engineers looking for a refresher. This book covers number
systems, Boolean algebra, combinational design, circuit minimization,
complex circuits, and sequential design. It also addresses the
mathematical and logical underpinnings of digital design while at the
same time showing readers how to construct complex circuits from simpler
building blocks. Each chapter is accompanied by a software module
designed to dynamically illustrate the concepts in the text.
Experimentation in the modules is encouraged, and in all cases, the
software offers dynamic and immediate feedback so that any of the user's
mistakes can be easily and quickly detected. The final chapter is
devoted to the application of these designs in novel creations such as
robots and other intelligent machines. The book also covers the
aesthetics of digital design as a method of creating efficient models.
Digital Design From Gates to Intelligent Machines is a uniquely engaging
and interactive complement to the lectures and problem sets of any
digital design course.
* Includes coverage of Unicode, Karnaugh maps, SOP & POS
circuits, PLAs, sequential analysis & synthesis, ALUs, and intelligent
* Covers both combinational and sequential synchronous design
* CD-ROM has an interactive simulator that checks the student's
work in addition to Java modules corresponding to each chapter
* Includes discussion of the latest developments in digital
design applications as well as the software used to create them
* Only textbook to show real-world software applications of the
design principles that correspond to each chapter
