Overview

*A highly accessible, comprehensive and fully up to date digital systems text
• A well known and respected text now revamped for current courses
• Part of the Newnes suite of texts for HND/1st year modules

Brian Holdsworth's Digital Logic Design is a well established undergraduate text on digital systems - offering full coverage of the field for first and second year modules and HND units. It has also proved popular in industry as a reference text.

Clive Woods has fully revised the text to cover all the latest developments in the field and to match current degree module syllabuses. The layout has also been redesigned to make it easier to use. The resulting book is highly accessible as well as being fully comprehensive.

New, updated and expanded topics in the fourth edition include: EBCDIC, Grey code, practical applications of flip-flops, linear and shaft encoders, memory elements and FPGAs. The section on fault-finding has been expanded. A new chapter is dedicated to the interface between digital components and analog voltages.

Audience: Electronic engineering undergraduates. All universities with electronic engineering departments.

Meet the Author

The late B. Holdsworth was born in Leeds and after war service in the Royal Navy he was awarded the B.Sc.(Eng.) degree by London University, and later in 1964 was awarded the M.Sc. degree by the University of Birmingham. After working on Radar Development with the Marconi Company for a number of years he was appointed Senior Lecturer at the University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana. This appointment was followed by further university appointments in Nigeria and Zambia.On returning to the UK in 1968 he joined the staff of the University of London at Chelsea College where he held successively the appointments of Lecturer and Senior Lecturer until he retired in 1985. During this period he developed and ran a number of short courses on digital techniques designed for practising engineers. He was also invited by the International Telecommunications Union on a number of occasions to give a series of lecture courses on the Indian sub-continent. In addition to the present volume he has written a book entitled “Microprocessor Engineering” and acted as editor for the “Digital Systems Reference Book”. For the first ten years of his retirement he worked as a part-time visiting lecturer at King’s College and University College, London University.

R.C. Woods was born in Leicester, England, and was awarded the B.A. and M.A. degrees in Physics by New College, Oxford University. He then worked in the Clarendon Laboratory, Oxford University, on magnetic resonance in rare earth metal alloys, and was awarded the D.Phil. degree in 1980. Next followed a period as a Research Assistant in the Engineering Science Department at the University of Oxford, where he worked on surface-acoustic wave devices. From 1982 to 1983, he was Senior Scientist at Plessey Research (Caswell) Ltd., Towcester, specialising in semiconductor lasers and LED systems. He was then a Lecturer (and subsequently Senior Lecturer) in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, and in 2001 he was appointed Full Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa. He currently has research interests in magnetic recording, novel solid-state devices, and device modelling, and he has authored more than 70 refereed research publications in these fields. He has been in charge of courses on Digital Systems and Semiconductor Devices for many years.
