Presenting the fundamentals of hardware design, this work integrates state-of-the-art techniques and technologies in an easy-to-understand style. Examples are used to build understanding and problem-solving skills. The text provides preparation for courses in contemporary computer architecture and organization that emphasize system-level concepts but which present only a cursory treatment of actual hardware design. To strengthen motivation for study, an ongoing example of a simple computer system is used to illustrate the principal impact of each topic in digital systems design.

Covers the fundamentals of hardware and computer design with exceptional breadth and in a very accessible style using abundant examples to build understanding and problem-solving skills. Reflects the current industry trend of designing with hardware description languages (HDLs) instead of logic diagrams - provides optional introductory treatments of both VHDL and Verilog languages - with additional coverage available on the Companion Web-site for more substantial treatment. By covering broadly-based fundamentals, provides an excellent foundation and perspective for more advanced courses in digital hardware design and computer architecture and organization preparation.
