As technology advances, digital system designers must acquire and maintain skills to design systems with analog, pulse/time, and digital circuits along with LSI and VLSI devices. The CRC Handbook of Digital System Design, Second Edition reviews the fundamentals of these topics for the convenience of designers who need to refresh their memories from time to time. In a somewhat unique presentation, this book integrates theory with practical design and covers three broad topics:
The basics- formulas, design equation, terminology, symbols, and notation
Characterstics, properties, and principles of operation of devices, modules, and building blocks frequently used as components in digital system design
Design procedures-guidelines for system design presented through examples
The author includes numerous examples, both simple and complex, throughout the book that help clarify points often confusing or overlooked. He also addresses memory and arithmetic unit design, techniques of grounding and shielding for analog and digital noise, and graphical techniques for nonlinear circuits and transmission line analysis.
The style is straightforward, the treatment self-contained and practical. The CRC Handbook of Digital System Design, Second Edition remains a popular and valuable resource for anyone involved in digital system design.
