Introduction to Modern Digital Electronics – Charles Hawkins and Jaume Segura

Students from the School of Engineering (SEG) looking to find some of the more updated reading materials for their course of study might find Introduction to Modern Digital Electronics (Preliminary Edition) useful.

Given the fact that technological advancements in the field of electronics is rapid, chips are getting more complicated and electrical engineers need to read extensively and frequently in order to remain relevant. Therefore, this book has been written in a manner which seeks to update readers on the changes and advancements in the digital electronics industry, as well as to refresh concepts pertaining to digital electronics by reiterating the basics.

The content presented in the 12 chapters of this book has been structured in a progressive manner to guide readers from the fundamentals to more advanced concepts. For instance, more advanced topics such as ‘memory circuits’ can be found in the 9th chapter. Each chapter also begins with a summary depicting a brief introduction of the topic to inform readers about learning objectives and what to expect – which I found especially useful.

Another thing which I liked about this book was its combination of theoretical and practical elaborations, unlike most others which contains chapters which first begins by presenting theory and progresses on to practice questions. For instance, in the first chapter on ‘logic gates and Boolean algebra’, theories are presented alongside practice questions and worked out examples. I found this helpful in helping me remember key concepts and would personally like to recommend this to those who are interested to learn more about digital electronics.
