Logic and Computer Design Fundamental, Updated Edition, 2/e Covers the fundamentals of harware and computer design with exceptional breadth and in a very accessible style using abundant examples to build understanding and problem-solving skills. Reflects the current industry trend of designing with hardware description languages (HDLs) instead of logic diagrams-provides optional introductory treatments of both VHDL and Verilog languages-with additional coverage available on the Companion Website for more substantial treatment. Gives the instructor maximum flexibility in HDL coverage. By covering broadly-based fundamentals, provides an excellent foundation and perspective for more advanced courses in digital hardware design and computer architecture and organization preparation.
