Digital Fundamentals: A Systems Approach offers unique coverage of digital technology with a system emphasis, providing a fundamental grounding in the basic concepts of digital technology and systems reinforced by an abundance of illustrations, examples, applications, and exercises.Hallmark Features:
Core fundamentals and basic logic functions are presented using a practical approach with emphasis on operation and application rather than on analysis and design.
- Core fundamentals are presented without being intermingled with more advanced topics.
- Many chapters feature an entire section devoted to a specific system and how it works. Additionally, system-level chapters cover digital data transmission, data processing and control, and buses, networks, and interfacing.
- System Examples illustrate how the basic concepts and logic elements are applied in a system application.
- System Notes present interesting facts and information.
- Multisim is used in selected examples, figures, and problems to provide practice in simulating logic circuits and systems and in troubleshooting.
- Worked examples illustrate core fundamentals and logic functions and require some basic analytical thought.
- Related problems in each worked example relate to the coverage of the example.
- Hands-on-tips (HOT) provide useful and practical information.
- Many chapters include a section on hardware description languages (VHDL and Verilog) that are essential for programmable logic applications.
Chapter pedagogy keeps students focused on learning the concepts.
- Each chapter begins with a chapter outline, objectives, introduction, and key terms list.
- Each section within a chapter begins with an introduction and objectives and concludes with a checkup exercise.
- Each chapter ends with a summary, key term glossary, true/false quiz, self-test, and sectionalized problem set.
- Answers to related problems, section checkups, true/false quiz, and self-test are at the end of each chapter.
- An end-of-book glossary contains all bold and color terms in the text.
- Answers to odd-numbered problems are at the end of the book.
- The Companion Website includes files related to the text, including tutorials, programs, and advanced topics.
The text’s approach to mathematical topics is limited to only essential coverage that a technician or technologist will need on the job.
- Programmable logic is emphasized; fixed-function logic is introduced on a limited basis.
