|About the Book|
An understanding of modern computer logic - incorporating core knowledge of number systems, number conversions, Boolean algebra, memories, and logic circuits - is fundamental to further study of computer architectures, system software, and computer networks. This text introduces and describes the relevant concepts, principles and applications of modern computer logic design. The book is self-contained, with an introductory chapter that concisely covers the history of computing devices, as well as number systems, number conversions, signed and unsigned integers, external code, and digital and digitizing concepts. Dedicated chapters on Boolean algebra, transistor circuits, combinatorial logic circuits, and sequential logic circuits round off the work. The emphasis is on design and applications.
