Description

Fundamentals of Digital Logic and Microcomputer Design, has long been hailed for its clear and simple presentation of the principles and basic tools required to design typical digital systems such as microcomputers. In this Fifth Edition, the author focuses on computer design at three levels: the device level, the logic level, and the system level. Basic topics are covered, such as number systems and Boolean algebra, combinational and sequential logic design, as well as more advanced subjects such as assembly language programming and microprocessor-based system design. Numerous examples are provided throughout the text.

Coverage includes:
  • Digital circuits at the gate and flip-flop levels
  • Analysis and design of combinational and sequential circuits
  • Microcomputer organization, architecture, and programming concepts
  • Design of computer instruction sets, CPU, memory, and I/O
  • System design features associated with popular microprocessors from Intel and Motorola
  • Future plans in microprocessor development
  • An instructor's manual, available upon request
Additionally, the accompanying CD-ROM, contains step-by-step procedures for installing and using Altera Quartus II software, MASM 6.11 (8086), and 68asmsim (68000), provides valuable simulation results via screen shots.

Fundamentals of Digital Logic and Microcomputer Design is an essential reference that will provide you with the fundamental tools you need to design typical digital systems.

Index.

While most texts either focus on computer design or digital logic and digital systems, this book includes both areas, making it a unique addition to existing literature.

The author has an extensive background in computers and has published numerous books on the subject. He is undoubtedly one of the leading authorities in this field.

This book covers simple topics, such as number system and Boolean algebra, to advanced topics, such as assembly language programming and microprocessor-based system design.

The accompanying CD contains a step by step procedure for installing and using Altera Quartus II software for synthesizing Verilog and VHDL descriptions. Screen shots of the waveforms and tabular forms illustrating the simulation results are also provided in the CD.

The CD also contains a step by step procedure for installing and using MASM 6.11 (8086) and 68asmsim (68000). Screen shots verifying correct operations of several assembly language programs via simulation using test data are also provided in the CD.

"…a well-established text for undergraduate and graduate students...a good reference for engineers." (IEEE Circuits & Devices Magazine, November/December 2006)

"…will serve very well for a number of courses in electrical and computing engineering…can also be used as a reference by practicing engineers who want to know about microcomputers." (Computing Reviews.com, December 14, 2005)
