PRINCIPLES OF MODERN DIGITAL DESIGN FROM UNDERLYING PRINCIPLES TO IMPLEMENTATION—A THOROUGH INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL LOGIC DESIGN With this book, readers discover the connection between logic design principles and theory and the logic design and optimization techniques used in practice. Therefore, they not only learn how to implement current design techniques, but also how these techniques were developed and why they work. With a deeper understanding of the underlying principles, readers become better problem-solvers when faced with new and difficult digital design challenges. Principles of Modern Digital Design begins with an examination of number systems and binary code followed by the fundamental concepts of digital logic. Next, readers advance to combinational logic design. Armed with this foundation, they are then introduced to VHDL, a powerful language used to describe the function of digital circuits and systems. All the major topics needed for a thorough understanding of modern digital design are presented, including: Fundamentals of synchronous sequential circuits and synchronous sequential circuit design Combinational logic design using VHDL Counter design Sequential circuit design using VHDL Asynchronous sequential circuits VHDL-based logic design examples are provided throughout the book to illustrate both the underlying principles and practical design applications. Each chapter is followed by exercises that enable readers to put their skills into practice by solving realistic digital design problems. An accompanying website with Quartus II software enables readers to replicate the book’s examples and perform the exercises. This book can be used for either a two- or one-semester course for undergraduate students in electrical and computer engineering and computer science. Its thorough explanation of theory, coupled with examples and exercises, enables both students and practitioners to master and implement modern digital design techniques with confide

Digital Design and Computer Architecture is designed for courses that combine digital logic design with computer organization/architecture or that teach these subjects as a two-course sequence. Digital Design and Computer Architecture begins with a modern approach by rigorously covering the fundamentals of digital logic design and then introducing Hardware Description Languages (HDLs). Featuring examples of the two most widely-used HDLs, VHDL and Verilog, the first half of the text prepares the reader for what follows in the second: the design of a MIPS Processor. By the end of Digital Design and Computer Architecture, readers will be able to build their own microprocessor and will have a top-to-bottom understanding of how it works--even if they have no formal background in design or architecture beyond an introductory class. David Harris and Sarah Harris combine an engaging and humorous writing style with an updated and hands-on approach to digital design. Unique presentation of digital logic design from the perspective of computer architecture using a real instruction set, MIPS. Side-by-side examples of the two most prominent Hardware Design Languages--VHDL and Verilog--illustrate and compare the ways the each can be used in the design of digital systems. Worked examples conclude each section to enhance the reader's understanding and retention of the material.
A comprehensive guide to UI design, providing key features and functional requirements, best practices and design guidelines, and components of the user experience of the application, illustrated with "live" case study examples.

The focus of Digital Design and Implementation with Field Programmable Devices is on a practical knowledge of digital system design for programmable devices. The book covers all necessary topics under one cover, and covers each topic just enough that is actually used by an advanced digital designer. The book is broken into three sections, covering digital system design concepts, use of tools, and systematic design of digital systems. This book provides a recap of digital design topics and computer architectures and shows the Verilog language for synthesis. In addition, for an industrial setting, the book shows how existing design components are used in upper level designs, and how user libraries are formed and utilized. Using Altera's UP2 programmable device development board with this book helps engineers test and debug their designs before programming their programmable devices on production boards. In an educational setting, the book can be used as a complementary book for the basic logic design course, or a laboratory book for the sophomore logic design lab, or as a textbook for senior level design courses. Using Altera's UP2 programmable device education board with this book helps students see their designs being implemented and tested, and thereby get a down-to-wire understanding of how things work.

The field of digital design offers immense opportunities for creative young people. Digital designers are in high demand to help design and create images for Web sites and digital media. Business is becoming more dependent on Web marketing, which often relies on visual design to succeed. This title raises teens' awareness of the many opportunities available in this burgeoning field.

As digital circuit elements decrease in physical size, resulting in increasingly complex systems, a basic logic model that can be used in the control and design of a range of semiconductor devices is vital. Finite State Machines (FSM) have numerous advantages; they can be applied to many areas (including motor control, and signal and serial data identification to name a few) and they use less logic than their alternatives, leading to the development of faster digital hardware systems. This clear and logical book presents a range of novel techniques for the rapid and reliable design of digital systems using FSMs, detailing exactly how and where they can be implemented. With a practical approach, it covers synchronous and asynchronous FSMs in the design of both simple and complex systems, and Petri-Net design techniques for sequential/parallel control systems. Chapters on Hardware Description Language cover the widely-used and powerful Verilog HDL in sufficient detail to facilitate the description and verification of FSMs, and FSM based systems, at both the gate and behavioural levels. Throughout, the text incorporates many real-world examples that demonstrate designs such as data acquisition, a memory tester, and passive serial data monitoring and detection, among others. A useful accompanying CD offers working Verilog software tools for the capture and simulation of design solutions. With a linear programmed learning format, this book works as a concise guide for the practising digital designer. This book will also be of importance to senior students and postgraduates of electronic engineering, who require design skills for the embedded systems market.
