Electronic Circuits: Digital

Practically Everything Is Digital These Days


This chapter is devoted to digital circuits. It begins with an overview of the binary number system and introduces binary codes such as binary-coded decimal and American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Next comes full coverage of logic circuits such as the inverter, AND, OR, NAND, NOR, and XOR gates. Then basic combinational logic circuits are covered and include the multiplexer, decoder, comparator, and adder.
