This Second Edition continues to use programmable logic as the primary vehicle for teaching digital design principles, and maintains its cutting-edge status by upgrading from MAX+PLUS II to Altera's newer Quartus II software, the most current method of digital design implementation. This Windows-based software allows users to design, test, and program CPLD designs in text-based (VHDL) and graphic (schematic entry) formats. The second edition introduces CPLDs earlier in the teaching sequence, laying a solid foundation for more advanced principles without neglecting underlying digital fundamentals such as Boolean algebra, logic minimization, and combinational and sequential circuits. VHDL and Quartus II applications are provided throughout. The accompanying CD-ROM contains Quartus Block Diagram files, VHDL files, and design and simulation files that afford users many opportunities to run simulations and program CPLDs with existing error-free design files.
