Primarily intended for undergraduate engineering students of Electronics and Communication, Electronics and Electrical, Electronics and Instrumentation, Computer Science and Information Technology, this book will also be useful for the students of BCA, B.Sc. (Electronics and CS), M.Sc. (Electronics and CS) and MCA.

Digital Design is a student-friendly textbook for learning digital electronic fundamentals and digital circuit design. It is suitable for both traditional design of digital circuits and HDL based digital design. This well organised text gives a comprehensive view of Boolean logic, logic gates and combinational circuits, synchronous and asynchronous circuits, memory devices, semiconductor devices and PLDs, and HDL, VHDL and Verilog programming. Numerous solved examples are given right after conceptual discussion to provide better comprehension of the subject matter. VHDL programs along with simulation results are given for better understanding of VHDL programming.

Key features

Well labelled illustrations provide practical understanding of the concepts.
GATE level MCQs with answers (along with detailed explanation wherever required) at the end of each chapter help students to prepare for competitive examinations.
Short questions with answers and appropriate number of review questions at the end of each chapter are useful for the students to prepare for university exams and competitive exams.
Separate chapters on VHDL and Verilog programming along with simulated results are included to enhance the programming skills of HDL.
