There is no field of enterprise today more dynamic or more challenging than Digital Integrated Circuits. But because of its rapid development, the field has quickly outgrown most of the standard textbooks. The field is also decidedly interdisciplinary. Engineers now must understand materials, physics, devices, processing electromagnetics, computer tools, and economics along with circuits and design rules, but few if any texts take the interdisciplinary approach that best prepares students for their future studies and practice.Author John Ayers designed Digital Integrated Circuits: Analysis and Design to meet three primary objectives:Take an interdisciplinary approach that will stay relevant for years to comeProvide broad coverage of the field relevant to students interested in designing integrated circuits and to those aiming towards designing with integrated circuitsFocus on the underlying principles rather than the details of current technologies that will soon be obsoleteRich with pedagogical features and supplementary materials, this book appears destined to set a new standard for digital integrated circuits texts. It provides all of the materials you need to offer the best possible course for engineering or computer science students, and it's clear, systematic presentation and wealth of solved examples build the solid, practical foundation today's students need.Prerequisites: Students will need an upper-level undergraduate engineering and science background with courses in circuits, electronics, and digital logic.
