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. 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. 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 and/or revised in 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.
The 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 (RTL), 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 enable 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 Veriloger 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 VeriLogger Pro software, and more. It can be found at http://www.prenhall.com/mano
