  • Introduces a wide range of software tools including schematic capture, logic simulation, Boolean minimization, multi-level minimization and state assignment.
  • Links the traditional techniques of logic design (such as Karnaugh maps and breadboard techniques) with real-world design examples.
  • Provides comprehensive, early coverage of programmable logic including ROMs, PALs, and PLAs.
  • Includes a variety of examples, exercises, problems, and case studies that illustrate real design problems and challenge the reader to develop practical solutions using modern design tools.
  • Includes a detailed case study of a simple processor design that synthesizes the text's coverage of combinational and sequential design methods.
  • Concludes most chapters with practical matters. These tie theory to practice and explain design technologies and logic devices in detail.

A modern introduction to logic design. Complementing the presentation of logic design theory with discussion of current design technologies, the text introduces readers to a wide range of software tools and demonstrates how they fit in the hardware design process. The text also encourages hands-on experimentation with software tools such as LogicWorks to bolster understanding of practical design methods. Annotation c.
