Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This best selling book is well known for effectively combining a clear, highly-accurate explanation of theory--supported by superior exercises, examples, and illustrations--and an emphasis on troubleshooting and applications using actual devices. The Sixth Edition features stronger coverage of key areas (including two new chapters on Programmable Logic Devices), new exercises throughout the text, and an improved pedagogical framework. It includes two specially designed sections which link principles to real world practices--a Digital System Application section in every chapter, and practical Workbench activities throughout the text. Plus, Digital Fundamentals, Sixth Edition features an exciting full color format which uses color to enhance the instructional value of photographs, illustrations, tables, charts, and graphs. Throughout the text's coverage, the use of mathematics is limited to only those concepts that are needed for understanding. Floyd's acclaimed troubleshooting emphasis, as always, provides students with the problem solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

This best-selling text, recognized as the authority on the fundamentals of digital electronics for nearly a quarter of a century, provides complete, up-to-date coverage from the basic concepts to the latest in digital signal processing. Floyd's acclaimed emphases on applications using real devices and troubleshooting assist the reader in developing the critical problem-solving skills that are so necessary for working in the field.

Format: Hardcover
When I took digital design class, I struggled to find a book that is easy to understand. I tried to read several books, including Roth's book, all of them are hard to understand. Thankfully I bought Floyd's book and his book is the best digital design book I have ever read so far.
1.) It has lots of colorful diagram that clearly illustrate the topics in each chapter.
2.) Each topic has its own exercises, and each exercises has solutions provided at the end of each chapter. Doing the exercises improves my understanding of the subject.
3.) Lots of examples in each topic. If you read and understand the examples, you can do the exercises.
4.) It covers some digital technology, including the PLD.
5.) Once you finish reading this book, you will be ready to read advanced digital design book.
Good job Mr. Floyd!

As a software engineer working in embedded applications environment, I needed to pick up digital electronics fundamentals fast. This book was extremely helpful, and enabled me to better understand the often-cryptic datasheets of microcontrollers.

Format: Hardcover
The Fundamentals bit of the title suits this book well... The range of subjects the book covers is adequate, and it is visually attractive and very clear all the time, but this is achieved sacrificing the depth and detail some topics deserve (for instance, integrated circuits technologies). The exercises the book provides are too easy all the time, and that is a disadvantage for the serious engineering student.

The 9th edition is the one that my professor requested. However, some of the information is dated, and some of it is out-dated, so there are conflicts with more recent technologies. Unless this is the edition that you specifically need, go with something newer.

I bought this book, because the book we had for class left a lot of things unanswered or was brief. This booked brook everything down and was very detailed. This book had many examples.
