More About This Textbook


Covers the fundamentals of hardware 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 Web-site for more substantial treatment. 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.


  • Includes a free copy of the Xilinx Student Edition Foundation Series software.
  • NEW—Many new sections on VHDL and Verilog—Includes separate discussions dedicated to VHDL or Verilog on: combinational design; sequential circuits; registers; datapaths; multipliers; and more.
    • Provides the reader with a basic introduction to either of the two hardware description languages used to design in today's computer industry.
  • NEW—125 additional pages on book's website on VHDL and Verilog— Includes additional explanatory material, VHDL and Verilog-based problems, and all source files for VHDL and Verilog examples.
  • NEW—40% changed or new problems.
    • Gives many opportunities to hone and practice.
  • Exceptionally readable.
  • A gradual development of logic, design, digital systems, and computer architecture concepts.
  • Balancedcoverage of both VHDL and Verilog languages.
  • Strong connection to real-world technologies—Discusses DRAM technology, field programmable gate arrays, hard disk and I/O technologies including the Universal Serial Bus.
  • On-going example of a simple computer system—Illustrates the principal impact of each topic on a PC computer design.
    • Stimulates the readers' interest and helps them build a strong understanding by referring to one familiar computer system throughout the book that is used to demonstrate the application of each concept as it is being covered.
  • Abundant coverage of programmable logic devices (PDLs)—Includes field programmable gate arrays.
    • Introduces growing technology that is becoming a mainstay in digital logic laboratories.
  • 25% of chapter problems solutions on website.
  • Transparency originals for most figures and tables on Website.
