This ninth edition of Digital Electronics: A Practical Approach with VHDL provides the fundamentals of digital circuitry to students in engineering and technology curricula. The digital circuits are introduced using fixed-function 7400 ICs and evolve into FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) programmed with VHDL (VHSIC Hardware Description Language). (Note: Those schools not wishing to develop logic using VHDL and FPGAs can completely skip those sections of the textbook without affecting the continuity of the remainder of the text, which describes logic design and implementation using 7400-series ICs.) Coverage begins with the basic logic gates used to perform arithmetic operations and proceeds through sequential logic and memory circuits used to interface to modern PCs. Professor Kleitz uses his vast experience of teaching electronics online and in class from his best-selling textbooks to know what it takes for an entry-level student to be brought up to speed in this emerging field. It was important to design this new textbook to present practical examples, be easy to read, and provide all of the information necessary for motivated students to teach themselves this new subject matter. This makes it ideal for learning in an online environment as well as from conventional inclass lectures. Digital electronic ICs (integrated circuits) and FPGAs are the “brains” behind common microprocessor-based systems such as those found in automobiles, personal computers, and automated factory control systems. The most exciting recent development in this field is that students now have the choice to design, simulate, and implement their circuits using a programming language called VHDL instead of wiring individual gates and devices to achieve the required function. Each topic area in this text consistently follows a very specific sequence of steps, making the transition from problem definition, to practical example, to logic IC implementation, to VHDL and FPGA implementation. To accomplish this, the text first introduces the theory of operation of the digital logic and then implements the design in integrated circuit form (see Figure P–1). Once the fixed-function IC logic is thoroughly explained, the next step is to implement the design as a graphic design file and then to implement it using the VHDL hardware descriptive language, all within the free version of the Altera Quartus® II development software. Several examples are used to bolster the student’s understanding of the subject before moving on to system-level design and troubleshooting applications of the logic. This step-by-step method has proven over the years to be the most effective method to build the fundamental understanding of digital electronics before proceeding to implement the logic design in VHDL. The Altera Quartus® II software is a free download that allows students to either graphically design their circuit by drawing the logic (using logic gates or 7400 macrofunctions) or use VHDL to define their logic. The design can then be simulated on a PC before using the same software to download the logic to an FPGA on one of the commercially available FPGA programmer boards, such as the Altera DE2 illustrated in this text. The first eight editions were developed from an accumulation of 28 years of class notes. Teaching online from the eighth edition for the past 3 years has given me the opportunity to review several suggestions from my students and other faculty regarding such things as improving a circuit diagram, clarifying an explanation, and redesigning an application to make it easier to duplicate in lab. More than 140 schools have adopted the eighth edition. To write the ninth edition, I have taken advantage of the comments from these schools as well as my own experience and market research to develop an even more practical and easier-to-learn-from textbook. In addition to rewriting several of the examples and applications based on my classroom and online teaching experience, I have added the following material: • Greatly expanded coverage of programmable logic devices • Steps involved in converting from 7400-series ICs to FPGAs • Beginning- and intermediate-level VHDL programming taught by example (Note: VHDL and FPGA coverage is optional, and its omission will not affect the remainder of the text.) • New basic and intermediate-level problem sets • New MultiSIM® examples and problems to help facilitate online learning and experimentation • Real-world and “green” applications • Several new and revised annotated figures • WWW references throughout Chapter Organization Basically, the text can be divided into two halves: Chapters 1 to 8 cover basic digital logic and combinational logic, and Chapters 9 to 18 cover sequential logic and digital systems. Chapters 1 and 2 provide the procedures for converting between the various number systems and introduce the student to the electronic signals and switches used in digital circuitry. Chapter 3 covers the basic logic gates and introduces the student to timing analysis and troubleshooting techniques. Chapter 4 explains how to implement designs using FPGAs. Chapter 5 shows how several of the basic gates can be connected together to form combinational logic. Boolean algebra, De Morgan’s theorem, VHDL programming, and Karnaugh mapping are used to reduce the logic to its simplest form. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 discuss combinational logic used to provide more advanced functions, such as parity checking, arithmetic operations, and code converting. The second half of this book begins with a discussion of the operating characteristics and specifications of the TTL and CMOS logic families (Chapter 9). Chapter 10 introduces flip-flops and the concept of sequential timing analysis. Chapter 11 makes the reader aware of the practical limitations of digital ICs and some common circuits that are used in later chapters to facilitate the use of medium-scale ICs. Chapters 12 and 13 expose the student to the operation and use of several common medium-scale ICs and their VHDL equivalents used to implement counter and shift register systems. Chapter 14 deals with oscillator and timing circuits built with digital ICs and with the 555 timer IC. Chapter 15 teaches the theory behind analog and digital conversion schemes and the practical implementation of ADC and DAC IC converters. Chapter 16 covers semiconductor, magnetic, and optical memory as they apply to PCs and microprocessor systems. Chapter 17 introduces microprocessor hardware and software to form a bridge between digital electronics and a follow-up course in microprocessors. Chapter 18 provides a working knowledge of one of today’s most popular microcontrollers, the 8051. The book concludes with several appendices used to supplement the chapter material. Prerequisites Although not mandatory, it is helpful if students using this text have an understanding of, or are concurrently enrolled in, a basic electricity course. Otherwise, all of the fundamental concepts of basic electricity required to complete this text are presented in Appendix F. Margin Annotations Icons Several annotations are given in the page margins throughout the text. These are intended to highlight particular points that were made on the page. They can be used as the catalyst to develop a rapport between the instructor and the students and to initiate online team discussions among the students. Four different icons are used to distinguish between the annotations. Common Misconception: These annotations point out areas of digital electronics that have typically been stumbling blocks for students and need careful attention. Pointing out these potential problem areas helps students avoid making related mistakes. Team Discussion: These annotations are questions that tend to initiate a discussion about a particular topic. The instructor can use them as a means to develop cooperative learning by encouraging student interaction. Helpful Hint: These annotations offer suggestions for circuit analysis and highlight critical topics presented in that area of the text. Students use these tips to gain insights regarding important concepts. Inside Your PC: These annotations are used to illustrate practical applications of the theory in that section as it is applied inside a modern PC. This will help the student to understand many of the terms used to describe the features that define the capability of a PC. Basic Problem Sets A key part of learning any technical subject matter is for the student to have practice solving problems of varying difficulty. The problems at the end of each chapter are grouped together by section number. Within each section are several basic problems designed to get the student to solve a problem using the fundamental information presented in the chapter. In addition to the basic problems, there are three other problem types: D (Design): Problems designated with the letter D ask the student to modify an existing circuit or to design an original circuit to perform a specific task. This type of exercise stimulates creative thinking and instills a feeling of accomplishment on successful completion of a circuit design. T (Troubleshooting): Problems designated with the letter T present the student with a malfunctioning circuit to be diagnosed or ask for a procedure to follow to test for proper circuit operation. This develops the student’s analytical skills and prepares him or her for troubleshooting tasks that would typically be faced on the job. C (Challenging): Problems designated with the letter C are the most challenging to solve. They require a thorough understanding of the material covered and go a step beyond by requiring the student to develop some of his or her own strategies to solve a problem that is different from the examples presented in the chapter. This also expands the student’s analytical skills and develops critical thinking techniques. MultiSIM® (National Instruments) is a software simulation tool that is used to reinforce the theory presented in each chapter. It provides an accurate simulation of digital and analog circuit operations along with a simulation of instruments used by technicians to measure IC, component, and circuit characteristics. With the purchase of this software, you have the ability to build and test most of the circuits presented in this text. This provides a great avenue for in-class as well as online experimentation. Several MultiSIM® examples and problems are included within each chapter (see Figure P–3). The textbook companion website provides all of the circuit files and instructions needed to solve each circuit. There are three types of problems: (1) circuit interaction problems require the student to change input values and take measurements at the outputs to verify circuit operation, (2) design problems require the student to design, or modify, a circuit to perform a particular task, and (3) troubleshooting problems require the student to find and fix the fault that exists in the circuit that is given.

The book is divided into four major parts. Part I covers HDL constructs and synthesis of basic digital circuits. Part II provides an overview of embedded software development with the emphasis on low–level I/O access and drivers. Part III demonstrates the design and development of hardware and software for several complex I/O peripherals, including PS2 keyboard and mouse, a graphic video controller, an audio codec, and an SD (secure digital) card. Part IV provides three case studies of the integration of hardware accelerators, including a custom GCD (greatest common divisor) circuit, a Mandelbrot set fractal circuit, and an audio synthesizer based on DDFS (direct digital frequency synthesis) methodology. The book utilizes FPGA devices, Nios II soft–core processor, and development platform from Altera Co., which is one of the two main FPGA manufactures. Altera has a generous university program that provides free software and discounted prototyping boards for educational institutions (details at http://www.altera.com/university ). The two main educational prototyping boards are known as DE1 ($99) and DE2 ($269). All experiments can be implemented and tested with these boards. A board combined with this book becomes a “turn–key” solution for the SoPC design experiments and projects. Most HDL and C codes in the book are device independent and can be adapted by other prototyping boards as long as a board has similar I/O configuration.
