For courses in Electronics and Electricity Technology

Digital Fundamentals: A Systems Approach offers unique coverage of digital technology with a system emphasis, providing a fundamental grounding in the basic concepts of digital technology and systems reinforced by an abundance of illustrations, examples, applications, and exercises.

Hallmark Features:

Core fundamentals and basic logic functions are presented using a practical approach with emphasis on operation and application rather than on analysis and design.

  • Core fundamentals are presented without being intermingled with more advanced topics.
  • Many chapters feature an entire section devoted to a specific system and how it works. Additionally, system-level chapters cover digital data transmission, data processing and control, and buses, networks, and interfacing.
  • System Examples illustrate how the basic concepts and logic elements are applied in a system application.
  • System Notes present interesting facts and information.
  • Multisim is used in selected examples, figures, and problems to provide practice in simulating logic circuits and systems and in troubleshooting.
  • Worked examples illustrate core fundamentals and logic functions and require some basic analytical thought.
  • Related problems in each worked example relate to the coverage of the example.
  • Hands-on-tips (HOT) provide useful and practical information.
  • Many chapters include a section on hardware description languages (VHDL and Verilog) that are essential for programmable logic applications.

Chapter pedagogy keeps students focused on learning the concepts.

  • Each chapter begins with a chapter outline, objectives, introduction, and key terms list.
  • Each section within a chapter begins with an introduction and objectives and concludes with a checkup exercise.
  • Each chapter ends with a summary, key term glossary, true/false quiz, self-test, and sectionalized problem set.
  • Answers to related problems, section checkups, true/false quiz, and self-test are at the end of each chapter.
  • An end-of-book glossary contains all bold and color terms in the text.
  • Answers to odd-numbered problems are at the end of the book.
  • The Companion Website includes files related to the text, including tutorials, programs, and advanced topics.

The text’s approach to mathematical topics is limited to only essential coverage that a technician or technologist will need on the job.

  • Programmable logic is emphasized; fixed-function logic is introduced on a limited basis.
