Book: Digital Circuit Projects - An Overview of Digital Circuits Through Implementing Integrated Circuits (2nd Ed)

  • Page ID
  • Digital circuits, often called Integrated Circuits or ICs, are the central building blocks of a Central Processing Unit (CPU). To understand how a computer works, it is essential to understand the digital circuits which make up the CPU. This text introduces the most important of these digital circuits; adders, decoders, multiplexers, D flip-flops, and simple state machines.
