Product description


For engineers, students, and technicians or hobbyists concerned with real-world implementation of complete digital systems -- whether they involve a desktop computer or a car's engine controller -- electrical engineer Balch covers underlying concepts as well as the practicalities of design. He begins with digital logic and microprocessor fundamentals and then proceeds to more advanced topics (logic design methodologies, high-performance memory and networking technologies, and programmable logic devices); critical analog support circuitry; and design issues such as clock distribution, power regulation, signal integrity, design for test, and circuit fabrication techniques. (Sci-Tech Book News 2003-12-01)

From the Back Cover


The explosion in communications and embedded computing technologies has brought with it a host of new skill requirements for electrical and electronics engineers, students, and hobbyists. With engineers expected to have such diverse expertise, they need comprehensive, easy-to-understand guidance on the fundamentals of digital design.
