Book Description

What makes some computers slow? What makes some digital systems operate reliably for years while others fail mysteriously every few hours? Why do some systems dissipate kilowatts while others operate off batteries? These questions of speed, reliability, and power are all determined by the system-level electrical design of a digital system. Digital Systems Engineering presents a comprehensive treatment of these topics. It combines a rigorous development of the fundamental principles in each area with down-to-earth examples of circuits and methods that work in practice. The book not only can serve as an undergraduate textbook, filling the gap between circuit design and logic design, but also can help practicing digital designers keep up with the speed and power of modern integrated circuits. The techniques described in this book, which were once used only in supercomputers, are now essential to the correct and efficient operation of any type of digital system.

Editorial Reviews

"Not many comprehensive references exist on this subject, and this book is one of the best available....Overall, this book will be a valuable addition to the library of every engineer involved in the design of digital systems, and for those who have only professional contact with digital system designers."

2Not satisfied
By Antonio Ciccomancini
Did not know that it was used item! I ordered this book thinking that it would have been new, instead I have received an used book. The process should be more clear!
