An eagerly anticipated, up-to-date guide to essential digital design fundamentals

Offering a modern, updated approach to digital design, this much-needed book reviews basic design fundamentals before diving into specific details of design optimization. You begin with an examination of the low-levels of design, noting a clear distinction between design and gate-level minimization. The author then progresses to the key uses of digital design today, and how it is used to build high-performance alternatives to software.

-Offers a fresh, up-to-date approach to digital design, whereas most literature available is sorely outdated

-Progresses though low levels of design, making a clear distinction between design and gate-level minimization

-Addresses the various uses of digital design today

-Enables you to gain a clearer understanding of applying digital design to your life

With this book by your side, you'll gain a better understanding of how to apply the material in the book to real-world scenarios.

Excellent introduction May 18, 2011
This is a great textbook for 1st year engineering students or engineers from other disciplines who need a basic, thorough introduction to digital logic. Digital Design is excellent for students and instructors. If you are interested in learning digital design then this is the book you need. Ecampus provided excellent customer service, therefore, I will, without a doubt purchase books from this company in the future.
