Establishing a solid foundation of digital design principles An authoritative introduction to basic digital design, Digital Design: Principles and Practices helps readers build a foundational understanding of theoretical and engineering principles. This book gives readers the opportunity to learn the basics at the high level (HDLs), at the low level (electrical circuits), and throughout the "vast middle" (gates, flip-flops, and higher-level digital-design building blocks). The author's 30 years of experience in both industrial and university settings brings weight and credibility to the material, and with broad coverage of logic design practices, the 5th Edition gives readers a look at how digital design works in the real world.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Design Series Volume 3 This university level Electrical Engineering text is for anyone who wants to know how to design products using digital logic circuits. The present text is unusually accessible to readers who want to acquire the skills of digital design. We present a thorough foundation so that you can proceed to learn how to design any digital system. This text is different from the many introductory digital design texts, because we actually design a product by implementing a design and not just talk about logic circuits used in a digital circuit. And, we ask you to work hard doing experiments so that you acquire real world experience with commercially available digital circuits. In other words this is about real learning. We start at the beginning by presenting a top down design method for digital systems. We learn about three basic tools necessary to execute any digital design - Truth Tables, Karnaugh maps, and Switching Algebra. The basic circuits of digital logic are building blocks without memory. They are standard commercially available logic circuits, which are described and their equations are presented. We only use standard products. Furthermore we show how to use mixed logic that simplifies digital design. The ASM (algorithmic state machine) chart, a fourth tool, is the preferred way to implement the algorithm representing the product you want to design. We show how to implement ASM charts, derive truth tables from them, and how to convert the truth tables to digital circuits. The ASM-chart-to-product process is straightforward. The design of complex building blocks with memory is based on elementary blocks with one bit memory also known as flip-flops. Designs are implemented by the ASM method. We show how to use ASM's to design up and up/down synchronous counters, shift registers, and linear feedback shift registers using standard products. This is followed by showing how to design memory systems with and without a cache hierarchy. We explain, and then show how to add error correction and control to the memory system. ASM charts and associated timing diagrams allow us to readily implement the designs. These are charts and timing diagrams we have not found anywhere else. A computer has two basic parts – computer control and a datapath for executing instructions. We define a user instruction set (uI), the uI address modes, and how the uI are formatted as binary words. Status bits NCZV and their condition codes that implement program control are defined. We show how each uI is represented by a list of micro instructions mI that is executed by the datapath, and how the datapath executes the mI. For large circuit designs text capture of digital designs is preferred to schematic capture. Verilog uses text capture to represent digital circuits with a hierarchy of modules that are interconnected via input and output ports. We show by example how to write modules defining digital circuits so that you can move on to multi 1,000 gate chip designs using Verilog, which is a hardware description language (HDL). The presentations are eminently clear, because they are based on the policies assume nothing and nothing is obvious. The present text's contents are topics one actually uses when engaged in digital circuit analysis and design. Eight experiments are included that give life to the text's contents, and provide the reader with real world experience with making measurements, using instruments, and learning about all kinds of parts. We consider the experiments to be significant learning activities.

The world of cinematography has changed more in the last few years than it has since it has in 1929, when sound recording was introduced. New technology, new tools and new methods have revolutionized the art and craft of telling stories visually. While some aspects of visual language, lighting and color are eternal, shooting methods, workflow and cameras have changed radically. Even experienced film artists have a need to update and review new methods and equipment. These change affect not only the director of photography but also the director, the camera assistants, gaffers, and digital imaging technicians. Cinematography: Theory and Practice covers both the artistry and craftsmanship of cinematography and visual storytelling. Few art forms are as tied to their tools and technology as is cinematography. Take your mastery of these new tools, techniques, and roles to the next level with this cutting-edge roadmap from author and filmmaker Blain Brown. Whether you are a student of filmmaking, just breaking into the business, currently working in the industry and looking to move up to the next level, or an experienced professional who wants to update their knowledge of tools and techniques, this book provides both a basic introduction to these issues as well as more advanced and in-depth coverage of the subject. The companion website features additional material, including lighting demonstrations, basic methods of lighting, using diffusion and other topics. Topics Include: Visual language Visual storytelling Continuity and coverage Cameras and digital sensors Exposure techniques for film and video Color in-depth Understanding digital images Waveform monitors, vectorscopes, and test charts Using linear, gamma, and log encoded video Image control and grading on the set The tools and basics of film lighting ASC-CDL, ACES and other new methods Optics and focus Camera movement Set operations Green screen, high speed and other topics

Despite remarkable advances in astronomy, space research, and related technology since the first edition of this book was published, the philosophy of the prior editions has remained the same throughout. However, because of this progress, there is a need to update the information and present the new findings. In the fourth edition of Astronomy: Principles and Practice, much like the previous editions, the celebrated authors give a comprehensive and systematic treatment to the theories of astronomy. This reference furthers your study of astronomy by presenting the basic software and hardware, providing several straightforward mathematical tools, and discussing some simple physical processes that are either involved in the astronomer's tools of trade or concerned in the mechanisms associated with astronomical bodies. The first six chapters introduce the simple observations that can be made by the eye as well as discuss how such observations were interpreted by previous civilizations. The next several chapters examine the interpretation of positional measurements and the basic principles of celestial mechanics. The authors then explore radiation, optical telescopes, and radio and high-energy technologies. They conclude with practical projects and exercises. New to the Fourth Edition: Revised values such as the obliquity of the ecliptic Expanded material that is devoted to new astronomies and techniques such as optical data recording A listing of Web sites that offer information on relevant astronomical events Revised and expanded, this edition continues to offer vital information about the fundamentals of astronomy. Astronomy: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition satisfies the need of anyone who has a strong desire to understand the philosophy and applications of the science of astronomy.

Unlike other books in the market, this second edition presents differential equations consistent with the way scientists and engineers use modern methods in their work. Technology is used freely, with more emphasis on modeling, graphical representation, qualitative concepts, and geometric intuition than on theoretical issues. It also refers to larger–scale computations that computer algebra systems and DE solvers make possible. And more exercises and examples involving working with data and devising the model provide scientists and engineers with the tools needed to model complex real–world situations.
