Digital Design and Computer Organization

Author: Hassan A. Farhat
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 0203486692
Release Date: 2003-12-29
Genre: Computers

Digital Design and Computer Organization introduces digital design as it applies to the creation of computer systems. It summarizes the tools of logic design and their mathematical basis, along with in depth coverage of combinational and sequential circuits. The book includes an accompanying CD that includes the majority of circuits highlighted in the text, delivering you hands-on experience in the simulation and observation of circuit functionality. These circuits were designed and tested with a user-friendly Electronics Workbench package (Multisim Textbook Edition) that enables your progression from truth tables onward to more complex designs. This volume differs from traditional digital design texts by providing a complete design of an AC-based CPU, allowing you to apply digital design directly to computer architecture. The book makes minimal reference to electrical properties and is vendor independent, allowing emphasis on the general design principles.

Wiedersehen mit der Familie Bennet aus „Stolz und Vorurteil“ Ein Millionenpublikum liebt Jane Austens „Stolz und Vorurteil“, ihren berühmten Roman über die Sorgen der Familie Bennet, für die fünf Töchter geeignete Ehemänner zu finden. Doch niemand weiß, was sich in Küche und Stall des Hauses Longbourn abspielt: Hier müht sich die junge Sarah über Wäschebottichen und Töpfen ab. Aber sie hat die Hoffnung noch nicht aufgegeben, dass das Leben mehr für sie bereithält. Ist die Ankunft des neuen Hausdieners James ein Zeichen? Während Elizabeth Bennet und Mr Darcy von einem Missverständnis ins nächste stolpern, nimmt im Hause Longbourn noch ein ganz anderes Liebesdrama seinen Lauf – denn James hütet ein Geheimnis von großer Sprengkraft. Jo Baker erzählt Jane Austens bekanntesten Roman von einer ganz anderen Seite: der der Dienstboten. Und zeigt, dass deren Dramen jenen der Herrschaften in nichts nachstehen.
