Digital electronics A Practical Approach (8th Edition) by WILLIAM KLEITZ

Do you want to know more about the Flip-Flops and Registers when you take module E201 – Digital Electronics 2? Can you create a mind map for this using what you learnt so far? If you would like to learn more about digital electronics, this book can help you.

The book emphasizes analytical reasoning and basic digital design using standard ICs that are used in industry today. In other words, it’s very practical in our area of study.

I like the examples listed in the book, for example, in chapter 10, in the first lesson on S-R Flip-Flop, a different colour is used to draw the waveform that is produced by the S-R Flip-Flop.  The function is printed in red and arrows point out specific triggers.

After each section, review questions (with answers) are provided while at the end of each chapter, a summary of points learnt, a glossary and a listing of problems is available to aid and test understanding.

Here’s an example of what else you can expect from the book:

In Chapter 11 – practical considerations for digital design (P414 to P462), we learn how to describe the causes and effects of a race condition on synchronous flip-flop operation, use manufactures’ data sheets to determine IC operating specifications such as setup time, hold time, propagation delay and input/output voltage and current specifications. We also learn about the properties of Schmitt trigger ICs.

This book can help us connect all the parts from these two semesters and give us a more complete picture. So come to our library to get this book soon!
