The book provides comprehensive coverage of programmable logic, including ROMs, PALs, and PLAs
A Practical Matters section concludes most chapters, which ties theory to practice and explains design technologies in detail. To synthesize the text coverage of combinational and sequential design methods, the author uses a detailed case study of a simple processor design in the final two chapters. The text introduces readers to a wide range of software tools, including schematic capture, logic simulation and Boolean minimization, and demonstrates how they fit into the hardware design process. The author also encourages handson experimentation with software tools such as LogicWorks to bolster the reader's understanding of practical design methods.
