Synopses & Reviews
An understanding of modern computer logic-incorporating core knowledge of number systems, number conversions, Boolean algebra, memories, and logic circuits-is fundamental to further study of computer architectures, system software, and computer networks. Computer Logic: Design Principles and Applications introduces and describes the relevant concepts, principles and applications of modern computer logic design. The book is self-contained, with an introductory chapter that concisely covers the history of computing devices, as well as number systems, number conversions, signed and unsigned integers, external code, and digital and digitizing concepts. Dedicated chapters on Boolean algebra, transistor circuits, combinatorial logic circuits, and sequential logic circuits round off the work. The emphasis is on design and applications. Topics and features: * Explains Boolean Algebra and logic design essentials in clear fashion * Includes modern topics, such as Unicode, Exclusive Or Theorems, unipolar transistors, copper technology, flash memory, Hardware Descriptive Language, and logic simulation software tools * Thorough coverage of combinatorial logic and provides numerous design examples, such as gates, decoders and encoders, comparators, carry-save and carry-propagated adders, multiplication trees, and programmable logic arrays * Provides chapter-by-chapter summary points, supplementary examples, and exercises * Sequential logic presented, with numerous design examples, such as flip-flops, counters, shift registers, sequencers, and excitation tables With its well-focused approach and clarity of presentation, this new text/reference is an excellent resource for advanced students and practitioners in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. Anyone seeking to develop a solid grounding in computer logic, circuit design, and logic design will find the book an essential and practical learning tool.
