SWITCH ON YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF DIGITAL ELECTRONICS!

Now anyone can gain a deeper understanding of digital electronics — without formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Digital Electronics Demystified, electronics expert and author Myke Predko provides a totally painless way to learn enough digital logic and electronics to build your own projects!

With Digital Electronics Demystified, you master the subject one simple step at a time — at your own speed. This unique guide offers problems at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book.

This entertaining self-teaching course makes it fun and easy to learn digital electronics fast.Get ready to:

  • Learn the ins and outs of CMOS logic, Programmable Logic Devices, and microprocessor/microcontroller interfacing
  • Rub shoulders with MML (Mickey Mouse Logic), semiconductor chips, timing devices, and other digital phenomena
  • Understand how computers "think"
  • Cease shying away from feedback circuits
  • Build digital projects for less than $10
  • Create a marketable product
  • Rate your progress with questions and quizzes

So if you're looking for an enjoyable route into digital logic and electronics, let Digital Electronics Demystified be your shortcut!

Synopsis:

One assumption made by most standard texts is that experimenting with digital electronics cannot be done easily. But, digital guru and author Myke Predko will show how readers can set up their own apparatus for experimenting with digital electronics for less than $10.

Synopsis:

The field of teaching digital electronics has not changed significantly in the past 20 years. Many of the same books that first became available in the late 1970s and early 1980s are still being used as basic texts. In the 20+ years since these were written, the basic rules have not changed, but they do not provide strong links to modern electronics including CMOS logic, Programmable Logic Devices and microprocessor/microcontroller interfacing. Courses teaching introductory digital electronics will fill in the missing areas of information for students, but neither the instructors nor students have resources to explain modern technology and interfaces. One assumption made by all the standard texts is that experimenting with digital electronics cannot be done easily - in the proposed book, “digital guru” Myke Predko will show how readers can set up their own apparatus for experimenting with digital electronics for less than $10.
