What makes some computers fast and others slow? Why do some digital systems operate reliably for years while others fail mysteriously every few hours? Why do some systems dissipate kilowatts whereas others operate off batteries? The answers to these questions of speed, reliability, and power are all determined by the system-level electrical design of a digital system. Digital Systems Engineering presents a comprehensive treatment of these topics. It combines a regorous development of the fundamental principles in each area with real world examples of circuits and methods. The book not only serves as an undergraduate textbook, filling and the gap between circuit and logic design, but also can help practicing digital designers keep pace with the speed and power of modern integrated circuits. The techniques described in this boook, once used only in super-computers, are now essential to the correct and efficient operation of any type of digital system.
