This treatment of the fundamentals of modern logic circuits aims to strike a balance between theory and practice and uses examples to clarify the general theory and to introduce useful devices. The text introduces fault detection, metastability and computer aided design, emphasizes VLSI and LSI implementations, and explains the use of Karnaugh maps for manual design and for visualizing problems. It also covers iterative circuits both in linear and tree forms, presents devices such as D-latches, edge-triggered FFT's, synchronizers, arbiters and c-elements. Finally, the book treats specification of optimal clocking schemes for both one- and-two-phase systems, and introduces the state map for generating variable-entered k-maps from ASM charts.

Electrical Engineering/Computer Engineering The Essence of Logic Circuits Second Edition Today, designing state-of-the-art circuits means packing more and more logic on a chip while avoiding timing faults. Featuring extensive introductory material, this complete, carefully organized guide brings you valuable information on designing logic circuits to meet the rising demands on modern circuit technology. The Essence of Logic Circuits allows computer engineers, computer scientists, and students to start from scratch and gain a comprehensive understanding of the most important topics in the field:
Biographical Sketch Dr. Stephen H. Unger has made important contributions to logic circuit design theory over a period of many years. This has included significant work on hazards, flow table reduction, iterative circuits, clocking schemes, and self-timed systems. His book Asynchronous Sequential Switching Circuits is a basic reference in that field. Dr. Unger's graduate work was at MIT, and he subsequently was a member of the technical staff of Bell Telephone Laboratories for almost 5 years. His industrial experience also includes work at RCA Laboratories and IBM. He is a professor of both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Columbia University, where he recently was instrumental in organizing a degree program in computer engineering. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and of the AAAS. Mostly through the IEEE (as a member of the Board of Directors and former president of the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology), Dr. Unger has also been active in the areas of engineering ethics and technology policy.
