  • Offers a full-color design, effective chapter organization, and clear writing that help students grasp complex concepts.
Hallmark Features:

 

Provides a strong foundation in the core fundamentals of digital technology:

  • Revised and Improved! Coverage of key topics has been revised and improved, while obsolete devices have been deleted.
  • New! A new boxed feature, Implementation, shows how various logic functions can be implemented using fixed-function devices or by writing a VHDL program for PLD implementation.
  • Added! Boolean simplification coverage now includes the Quine-McClusky method, and the Expresso method is introduced.
  • Added! A discussion of Moore and Mealy state machines has been added.
  • Improved! The chapter on programmable logic has been modified and improved.
  • Added! A discussion of memory hierarchy has been added.
  • New! A new chapter on data transmission has been added and includes extensive coverage of standard busses.
  • Revised! The chapter on computers has been completely revised and is now entitled Data Processing.
  • Core fundamentals are presented without being intermingled with advanced or peripheral topics.
  • InfoNotes throughout the text’s marginsprovide interesting information in a condensed form.
  • Hands-On Tips interspersed throughout provide useful and practical information.
  • The operation and application of test instruments, including the oscilloscope, logic analyzer, function generator, and DMM, are covered. 

Covers basic concepts reinforced by plentiful illustrations, examples, exercises, and applications:

  • Revised and Updated! The Applied Logic features (formerly System Applications) have been revised and new topics added. Also, VHDL code for PLD implementation is shown.
  • Updated! All the Multisim circuit files have been updated to the latest version.
  • An abundance of worked-out examples help illustrate and clarify basic concepts or specific procedures.  Each example ends with a Related Problem that reinforces or expands on the example by requiring the student to work through a problem similar to the example. 
  • An Applied Logic feature at the end of many chapters asks students to apply the concepts and procedures covered in the chapter through a “real-world” system where analysis, troubleshooting, design, and simulation are used.
  • Multisim files on the text’s companion website provide circuits that are referenced in the text for optional simulation and troubleshooting.
  • Extensive problem sets at the end of each chapter include Troubleshooting, Applied Logic, Design, and Multisim Troubleshooting Practice.
  • Troubleshooting sections in many chapters relate to the topics covered in the chapter and emphasizes troubleshooting techniques and the use of test instruments and circuit simulation.   

Offers a full-color design, effective chapter organization, and clear writing that help students grasp complex concepts:

  • New! A new page layout and design provides better visual appearance and ease of use.
  • Section Opener: Each section in a chapter begins with a brief introduction that includes a general overview and section objectives. 
  • Section Check-up exercises: Each section ends with a review consisting of questions or exercises that emphasize the main concepts presented in the section.  Answers to the Section Check-ups are at the end of the chapter.
  • Key terms are listed on each chapter opener.  Within the chapter, the key terms are highlighted in color boldface. Each key term is defined at the end of the chapter as well as in the comprehensive glossary at the end of the book. Glossary terms are indicated by black boldface in the text.  
  • Reminders inform students where to find the answers to the various exercises and problems throughout each chapter.
  • A chapter outline, chapter objectives, introduction, and key terms list appear on the opening page of each chapter.
  • Each chapter ends with a summary, Key Term Glossary, True/False quiz, multiple-choice self-test, and answers to Section Reviews, Related Problems, and the chapter quizzes.
