Digital Desing and Computer Architecture by Harris D.M.

By Harris D.M.

Electronic layout and computing device structure is designed for classes that mix electronic good judgment layout with machine organization/architecture or that train those topics as a two-course series. electronic layout and computing device structure starts with a latest strategy by way of conscientiously overlaying the basics of electronic good judgment layout after which introducing Description Languages (HDLs). that includes examples of the 2 such a lot widely-used HDLs, VHDL and Verilog, the 1st half the textual content prepares the reader for what follows within the moment: the layout of a MIPS Processor. by way of the tip of electronic layout and laptop structure, readers could be capable of construct their very own microprocessor and may have a top-to-bottom realizing of ways it works--even in the event that they haven't any formal heritage in layout or structure past an introductory category. David Harris and Sarah Harris mix a fascinating and funny writing kind with an up-to-date and hands-on method of electronic layout.

Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers: Principles and Applications

This publication is a hands-on advent to the foundations and perform of embedded procedure layout utilizing the PIC microcontroller. choked with worthwhile examples and illustrations, it provides an in-depth remedy of microcontroller layout, programming in either meeting language and C, and lines complex issues corresponding to networking and real-time working platforms.

Logic and Language Models for Computer Science

This article makes in-depth explorations of a huge variety of theoretical issues in desktop technological know-how. It plunges into the purposes of the summary innovations so as to confront and deal with the skepticism of readers, and instill in them an appreciation for the usefulness of thought. A two-part presentation integrates common sense and formal language—both with functions.

Example text

2 . 2 Sum-of-Products Form A truth table of N inputs contains 2N rows, one for each possible value of the inputs. 2 Boolean Equations that is TRUE for that row. 8 shows a truth table of two inputs, A and B. Each row shows its corresponding minterm. For example, the minterm for the first row is AB because AB is TRUE when A ϭ 0, B ϭ 0. We can write a Boolean equation for any truth table by summing each of the minterms for which the output, Y, is TRUE. 8, there is only one row (or minterm) for which the output Y is TRUE, shown circled in blue.

In Chapters 2 through 5, we continue the study of digital logic. Chapter 2 addresses combinational logic, in which the outputs depend only on the current inputs. The logic gates introduced already are examples of combinational logic. You will learn to design circuits involving multiple gates to implement a relationship between inputs and outputs specified by a truth table or Boolean equation. Chapter 3 addresses sequential logic, in which the outputs depend on both current and past inputs. Registers are common sequential elements that remember their previous input.

Moreover, pMOS transistors are slower than nMOS transistors because holes cannot move around the silicon lattice as fast as electrons. Therefore the parallel nMOS transistors are fast and the series pMOS transistors are slow, especially when many are in series. 39. This pMOS transistor is often called a weak pull-up. The physical dimensions of the pMOS transistor are selected so that the pMOS transistor will pull the output, Y, HIGH weakly—that is, only if none of the nMOS transistors are ON. But if any nMOS transistor is ON, it overpowers the weak pull-up and pulls Y down close enough to GND to produce a logic 0.
