Description : Digital Electronics provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles of modern digital electronics from basic logic elements to analogue-digital converters. This new edition of Digital Electronics for Technicians has been revised to bring it up-to-date with current devices and includes many practical exercises. The book introduces the reader to digital signals and the applications of digital technology. It then covers binary and hexadecimal numbers and arithmetic. The circuits that are used in combinational logic are then considered, followed by sequential logic circuits. The book goes on to describe memories, programmable logic devices and visual displays. It concludes with analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue converters. This book retains the traditional ideas which are still very relevant, particularly in teaching and prototyping. Each chapter starts with a list of objectives and also includes many fully worked examples and practical exercises. The exercises ask the reader to build a given circuit on a breadboard and test it to check its operation. A full list of the components required is given. The exercises use the readily-available and easy-to-use 74LS series devices but also give 74HC alternatives where they are available. There are also a series of Electronics Workbench circuit files available from Addison Wesley Longman's website that correspond to the practical exercises.Key features comprehensive introduction to digital electronics fully-worked examples refers to practical devices throughout exercises with worked answers to numerical questions includes practical exercises for the student to carry out example circuits for use in Electronics Workbench available free from website ftp: //ftp.awl.co.uk/pub/awl-he/engineering/green latest IEC symbols are used and explained This text covers the digital electronic requirements of BTEC National Diplomas in Engineering. It will also be a useful text for introductory digital electronics modules on first year degree courses and BTEC Higher National Diplomas in engineering. it will also be suitable for C&G electronics servicing parts 2 and 3 (2240), NVQ information technology (C&G 7261) and electronics options on Advanced GNVQ Engineering.
Description : The fundamentals and implementation of digital electronics are essential to understanding the design and working of consumer/industrial electronics, communications, embedded systems, computers, security and military equipment. Devices used in applications such as these are constantly decreasing in size and employing more complex technology. It is therefore essential for engineers and students to understand the fundamentals, implementation and application principles of digital electronics, devices and integrated circuits. This is so that they can use the most appropriate and effective technique to suit their technical need. This book provides practical and comprehensive coverage of digital electronics, bringing together information on fundamental theory, operational aspects and potential applications. With worked problems, examples, and review questions for each chapter, Digital Electronics includes: information on number systems, binary codes, digital arithmetic, logic gates and families, and Boolean algebra; an in-depth look at multiplexers, de-multiplexers, devices for arithmetic operations, flip-flops and related devices, counters and registers, and data conversion circuits; up-to-date coverage of recent application fields, such as programmable logic devices, microprocessors, microcontrollers, digital troubleshooting and digital instrumentation. A comprehensive, must-read book on digital electronics for senior undergraduate and graduate students of electrical, electronics and computer engineering, and a valuable reference book for professionals and researchers.
Description : Designed as a textbook for undergraduate students in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Computer Science, and Information Technology, this up-to-date, well-organized study gives an exhaustive treatment of the basic principles of Digital Electronics and Logic Design. It aims at bridging the gap between these two subjects. The many years of teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering that Professor Somanathan Nair has done is reflected in the in-depth analysis and student-friendly approach of this book. Concepts are illustrated with the help of a large number of diagrams so that students can comprehend the subject with ease. Worked-out examples within the text illustrate the concepts discussed, and questions at the end of each chapter drill the students in self-study.

Description : Digital Electronics and Design with VHDL offers a friendly presentation of the fundamental principles and practices of modern digital design. Unlike any other book in this field, transistor-level implementations are also included, which allow the readers to gain a solid understanding of a circuit's real potential and limitations, and to develop a realistic perspective on the practical design of actual integrated circuits. Coverage includes the largest selection available of digital circuits in all categories (combinational, sequential, logical, or arithmetic); and detailed digital design techniques, with a thorough discussion on state-machine modeling for the analysis and design of complex sequential systems. Key technologies used in modern circuits are also described, including Bipolar, MOS, ROM/RAM, and CPLD/FPGA chips, as well as codes and techniques used in data storage and transmission. Designs are illustrated by means of complete, realistic applications using VHDL, where the complete code, comments, and simulation results are included. This text is ideal for courses in Digital Design, Digital Logic, Digital Electronics, VLSI, and VHDL; and industry practitioners in digital electronics.
