I Ed.2019 17x24 Paperback 240 pages ISBN: 9788893851596
Logic gates and families, design methodologies, combinational logic and devices, sequential networks and components, memories
The book is addressed to an audience interested in the hardware design of digital electronic circuits and systems. It introduces the basics of digital electronics and then describes in detail both combinational and sequential logics and components. The book aims at providing an in-depth overview of the devices and components necessary to design digital electronic systems, by exploiting commercially available components. The book describes the most important concepts, components’ internal block diagrams, schematics and functional specifications, implementations, and design tricks that are the fundamental building blocks of any complex electronic system, designed to be implemented either through discrete components in electronic boards or by means of single-chip programmable logic, such as Field-Programmable Gate Arrays and microcontrollers.
The topics covered by the book are:
- Basic and advanced logic gates;
- TTL and CMOS logic families and interoperability;
- Combinational logic and truth table;
- Sum-of-Products, Product-of-Sums, and Karnaugh maps design;
- Sequential logic and classifications;
- Latches and Flip-Flops;
- Combinational MSI integrated circuits (encoders, decoders, comparators, parity generators and checkers, adders, ALU, multiplexer, demultiplexer);
- Sequential MSI integrated circuits (latches and flip-flops, registers, shift- registers, counters); • Memories (ROM, RAM, SDRAM, E2PROM and flash);
- Basics on 8-bit Microcontrollers.
FRANCO ZAPPA was born in November 1965. In 1989 he graduated cum laude in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano and in 1993 he received the Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Communications. From 1993 to 1998 he was assistant professor and then from 1998 to 2011 he was associate professor at the Dept. of Electronics and Information Science of Politecnico di Milano. Since 2011 he is a full professor of Electronics and teaches “Electronic Systems” at the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering and “Microcontrollers” at the Bachelor of Science. His research interests are in microelectronics, photonics and instrumentation in the fields of 2D imaging and 3D ranging, by means of single photon counting detectors.
