Bebop to the Boolean Boogie

    By

    This entertaining and readable book provides a solid, comprehensive introduction to contemporary electronics. It's not a "how-to-do" electronics book, but rather an in-depth explanation of how today's integrated circuits work, how they are designed and manufactured, and how they are put together into powerful and sophisticated electronic systems. In addition to the technical details, it's packed with practical information of interest and use to engineers and support personnel in the electronics industry. It even tells how to pronounce the alphabet soup of acronyms that runs rampant in the industry.CONTENTS:Section 1: FundamentalsChapter 1 Analog versus Digital Chapter 2 Atoms, Molecules, and Crystals Chapter 3 Conductors, Insulators, and Other Stuff Chapter 4 Semiconductors Diodes and Transistors Chapter 5 Primitive Logic Functions Chapter 6 Using Transistors to Build Logic Gates Chapter 7 Alternative Numbering Systems Chapter 8 Binary Arithmetic Chapter 9 Boolean Algebra Chapter 10 Karnaugh Maps Chapter 11 Slightly More Complex Functions Chapter 12 State Machines Chapter 13 Analog-to-Digital and Vice VersaSection 2: Components and ProcessesChapter 14 Integrated Circuits ICs Chapter 15 Memory ICs Chapter 16 Programmable ICs Chapter 17 Application-Specific Integrated Circuits ASICs Chapter 18 Circuit Boards Chapter 19 Hybrids Chapter 20 System-in-Package Sip and FriendsChapter 21 Alternative and Future Technologies Section 3: Design Tools and StuffChapter 22 General Concepts Chapter 23 Design and Verification Tools Appendix A Assertion-Level Logic Appendix B Positive Logic versus Negative Logic Appendix C Reed-Muller Logic Appendix D Gray Codes Appendix E Linear Feedback Shift Registers LFSRs Appendix F Pass-Transistor Logic Appendix G More on Semiconductors Appendix H Rounding Algorithms 101 Appendix I Pass-Transistor Logic Appendix J An Interesting Conundrum Abbreviations and Acronyms Glossary Index
