This is an unusual little book that addresses a specific need: That audience has very different needs than those of electrical engineering students learning logic design, but I know of no other book intended for that audience. The pace is brisk. By the time the book ends, the student has seen bit-slice controllers, microprocessors and IO systems, and the inner workings of a UART. This is not idle play. Instead, they're inside of sewing machines, fuel injectors, implanted defibrillators, and anti-lock brakes. Schools do little, if anything at all, to prepare students for working in an environment where software and hardware are interchangeable.

In those worlds, a programmer is often called upon to specify and debug hardware, at least as one member of a mixed development team. They may even need to understand how to create logic circuits that perform computing tasks. Silicon Graphics and Cray have both released main-stream processors that have programmable logic strapped onto their CPUs, and someone has to make that logic work.

See a Problem?

Because of its unique direction, this book skips nearly all of what a "logic design" book would address. There is no Karnaugh mapping, state minimization, or mention of logic hazards though the student does get a look at some kinds of transient glitches. There is bare mention of asynchronous design, a bugbear of logic design students and now relegated to narrow niches.

An EE might poo-poo this book as "logic lite," because it doesn't teach all that manly circuit stuff. Well, it wasn't meant to.

See a Problem?

The student who studies this book carefully, however, will be ready to deal with ground bounce, spec sheets, and a wide range of problems from the analog level on up. Wirth's dense but readable book is my choice for a programmer's first look inside the hardware. I just wish there were an edition newer than the printing.

Digital Circuit Design for Computer Science Students: An Introductory Textbook by Niklaus Wirth

Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. This book emerged from lecture notes of a course taught in the second year to students of Computer Science at the Federal Institute of Tech nology, Zurich. The topic of hardware design plays a relatively minor role in Compu ter Science curricula at many universities.

Most courses concentrate on the various aspects of theory, software, and of information sys tems. Students This book emerged from lecture notes of a course taught in the second year to students of Computer Science at the Federal Institute of Tech nology, Zurich. Students therefore obtain few opportunities to deal with con crete engineering problems and physical devices. We consider this as rather unfortunate, particularly for technical universities. As a result, we observe a growing gap between interest in and understanding of design issues involving not only software but also hardware and inter faces.

This is regrettable at a time when new and advanced solutions to many problems are often crucially influenced by recent hardware de velopments, at a time when the engineer needs to be competent in both software and hardware issues in order to fmd an optimally inte grated, competitive solution. It turns out that the hesitation of many students in Computer Science to take an active interest in hardware - his or her daily tool!
