This text is intended for an introductory digital design course for students at the freshman level, it also is intended for an introductory computer design course with assembly language programming for students at the sophomore level. This text uses a spiral teaching approach by introducing a design problem and then, in the same chapter or a later chapter, either (1) reemphasizing the same concepts when a different design is presented, or (2) working the same problem using a different technique. This is done to increase the likelihood of retention.
VHDL is introduced in the first chapter using just Boolean functions. This prepares students to use VHDL early in their laboratory experiments
Homework problems are keys to each section, for instructor and student convenience. Homework
Solutions will be made available to instructors via the web
