Updated with modern coverage, a streamlined presentation, and excellent companion software, this seventh edition of FUNDAMENTALS OF LOGIC DESIGN achieves yet again an unmatched balance between theory and application. Authors Charles H. Roth, Jr. and Larry L. Kinney carefully present the theory that is necessary for understanding the fundamental concepts of logic design while not overwhelming students with the mathematics of switching theory. Divided into 20 easy-to-grasp study units, the book covers such fundamental concepts as Boolean algebra, logic gates design, flip-flops, and state machines. By combining flip-flops with networks of logic gates, students will learn to design counters, adders, sequence detectors, and simple digital systems. After covering the basics, this text presents modern design techniques using programmable logic devices and the VHDL hardware description language.

    4. Applications of Boolean algebra minterm and maxterm expansions.
    5. Karnaugh maps.
    6. Quine-McCluskey method.
    7. Multi-level gate circuits.
    8. Combinational circuit design and simulation using gates.
    9. Multiplexers, decoders, and programmable logic devices.
    10. Introduction to VHDL.
    11. Latches and flip-flops.
    12. Registers and counters.
    13. Analysis of clocked sequential circuits.
    14. Derivation of state graphs and tables.
    15. Reduction of state tables state assignment.
    16. Sequentional circuit design.
    17. VHDL for sequential logic.
    18. Circuits for arithmetic operation.
    19. State machine design with SM charts.
    20. VHDL for digital system design.

    • Balances the basic theory of switching circuits and how to apply it providing students with a clear presentation of the key concepts and how to apply them to problems.
    • Contains built-in Self Study Guide at the beginning of each chapter containing reading assignments and study questions which prepare students to make the most of their reading.
    • Includes simulation or laboratory exercises along with specially designed LogicAid and SimuAid design and simulation software that provides opportunities to design a logic circuit and then test its operation.
    • The material on representation of negative numbers has been reorganized allowing the discussions on one's complement and sign magnitude to be easily omitted if desired.
    • Optional Verilog supplement is available online for courses using the Verilog hardware descriptive language.
    • Newly reorganized discussion of switching algebra and Boolean algebra with a more clear distinction of the two.
    • Newly added introduction to asynchronous circuits.
    • NAND and NOR gates are now introduced earlier in the text.
    • New content on carry look-ahead adders has been added.
    • Expanded discussion of hazard detection in Multi-level circuits.
    • Alternative implementations of multiplexers are now given using different types of gates as well as smaller multiplexers to implement larger ones.
    • Content on gated SR latches is now included with an emphasis on input change restrictions and how it relates to hazards. Also included are alternative implementations of gated latches such as the Earle latch.
    • Additional challenging and design-oriented problems have been added to the majority of chapters.
  • "The book has a good balance of fundamental methods and tools used in design of digital circuits, and current technology such as programmable devices. The Computer-Aided-Design and Simulation software provided free with the book is very helpful for the students."
