Fundamentals of Digital Logic with VHDL Design
teaches the basic design techniques for logic circuits. The text ptovides a clear and easily understandable discussion of logic circuit design without the use of unnecessary formalism. It emphasizes the synthesis of circuits and explains how circuits are implemented in real chips. Fundamental concepts are illustrated by using small examples, which are easy to understand. Then, a modular approach is used to show how larger circuits are designed.
VHDL is a complex language so it is introduced gradually in the book. Each VHDL feature is presented as it becomes pertinent for the circuits being discussed. While it includes a discussion of VHDL, the book provides thorough coverage of the fundamental concepts of logic circuit design, independent of the use of VHDL and CAD tools. A CD-ROM containg all of the VHDL design examples used in the book, as well Altera's Quartus II CAD software, is included free with every text.

New Quartus software from Altera.
Teaches the basic design techniques for logic circuits.
The book emphasizes the concepts that should be covered in an introductory course on logic design, focusing on:
Logic functions, gates, and rules of Boolean algebra.
Circuit synthesis and optimization techniques.
Number representation and arithmetic circuits.
Combinational-circuit building blocks, such as multiplexers, decoders, encoders, and code converters.
Sequential-circuit building blocks, such as flip-flops, registers, and counters.
Design of synchronous sequential circuits.
Use of the basic building blocks in designing larger systems.
