This best selling book is well known for effectively combining a clear, highly-accurate explanation of theory--supported by superior exercises, examples, and illustrations--and an emphasis on troubleshooting and applications using actual devices. The Sixth Edition features stronger coverage of key areas (including two new chapters on Programmable Logic Devices), new exercises throughout the text, and an improved pedagogical framework. It includes two specially designed sections which link principles to real world practices--a Digital System Application section in every chapter, and practical Workbench activities throughout the text. Plus, Digital Fundamentals, Sixth Edition features an exciting full color format which uses color to enhance the instructional value of photographs, illustrations, tables, charts, and graphs. Throughout the text's coverage, the use of mathematics is limited to only those concepts that are needed for understanding. Floyd's acclaimed troubleshooting emphasis, as always, provides students with the problem solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job!Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

This is the eighth edition of Digital Fundamentals. As with previous editions, it provides comprehensive coverage in a clear, straightforward, and well-illustrated format. Many topics have been strengthened or enhanced, and numerous improvements can be found throughout the book. This edition further reflects the shift from fixed-function logic devices to programmable logic devices (PLDs) by introducing programmable logic in Chapter 1 and continuing with a complete section in many chapters devoted to the topic of PLDs. As before, the programming of PLDs using the ABEL hardware description language is covered in two chapters. A new chapter on digital signal processing has been added. Also, a new text design and layout enhance the text's appearance and usability.
You will probably find more topics in this text than you can cover in a single course. This range of topics provides the flexibility to accommodate a variety of program requirements. For example, some of the design-oriented or system application topics may not be appropriate in some courses. Other programs may not cover PLDs or ABEL, while some may not have time to discuss microprocessors or digital signal processing. Also, there are programs that may not need to delve into the details of "inside-the-chip" circuitry. These and other topics can be omitted or covered lightly without affecting the coverage of the fundamental topics. A background in transistor circuits is not a prerequisite for this textbook.
