Logic and Computer Design Fundamentals – M. Morris Mano, C. Kime – 2nd Edition


Reflecting the current industry trend of doing designs using hardware description languages (HDL) instead of diagrams, this straightforward guide presents the fundamentals of hardware and the latest techniques and technologies in a smooth, easy-to-understand style with an abundant use of examples to build understanding and problem-solving skills.

Presents a gradual of logic, design, and concepts, and more real-world examples and than any other of its kind. Covers digital delay early on to prepare readers for forthcoming study on pipelining, and weaves an on-going example of a simple computer system throughout to illustrate the principle impact of each topic in design.

Discusses both VHDL and Verilog languages usage in combinational design sequential circuits, registers, datapaths, and multipliers, and dedicates 125 pages on an accompanying website that includes all source files for VHDL and Verilog examples. Includes new material on inertial delay, dynamic RAMs, jump and instructions, and Universal Serial Bus.
