About

Overview

For the latest digital principles, techniques, and hardware, look no further than this up-to-date fifth edition! Practical, easy-to-understand coverage of the basics of digital design is provided, along with information on the necessary hardware to implement the design, and VHDL programming language for programming PLD devices. Everything from basic programming concepts to microprocessors and microcontrollers is featured, with updated coverage of CMOS sub-families and IC packages that reflect recent industry changes. The only book of its kind that includes both hands-on labs and MultiSIM computer-simulated labs, Digital Electronics, 5th Edition provides users with opportunities to apply theory in real-world situations while becoming familiar with computer simulation technology.

Additional Product Information

Features and Benefits

  • Lab exercises that require readers to utilize multiple approaches when constructing and analyzing circuits, designing and testing them, troubleshooting faults, and implementing circuits in a CPLD help solidify key concepts
  • Many chapters contain circuits in Multisim for troubleshooting so that readers gain practical experience while developing analytical thinking skills
  • QuartusII from Altera is used to write and compile VHDL programs, simulate the resulting circuits, and program the CPLD so that users gain valuable exposure to a powerful industry-standard programming language and a state-of-the-art development system
  • Optional coverage on programming complex programmable logic devices (CPDS) using VHDL allow users to gain valuable exposure to a powerful industry-standard programming language. VHDL programs are created, compiled, simulated, and downloaded using Altera�s Quartus II development system, which is available for free on the CD included at the back of the book

Digital Design with CPLD Applications and VHDL  (ISBN-10: 1401840302 | ISBN-13: 9781401840303)

This Second Edition continues to use programmable logic as the primary vehicle for teaching digital design principles, and maintains its cutting-edge status by updating to Altera's newest Quartus II software, the most current method of digital design implementation. This Windows-based software allows users to design, test, and program CPLD designs in text-based (VHDL) and graphic (schematic entry) formats. The Second Edition introduces CPLDs earlier in the teaching sequence, laying a solid foundation for more advanced principles without neglecting underlying digital fundamentals such as Boolean algebra, logic minimization, and combinational and sequential circuits. VHDL and Quartus II applications are provided throughout.
