Ternary digital system is commonly known as three valued digital system.Three valued logic is an elementary set of Multiple Valued Logic, which is introduced in the book at the beginning. The book provides a detail overview of every concept required for the design and applications of ternary circuits. It covers the basic concepts for ternary logic fundamentals,ternary logic gates, its logic gate truth tables, Boolean rules for ternary logic up to ternary logic families, function synthesis and minimization techniques and an applications like one trit T-ALU, Two trit T-ALU Slice, Ternary R-S and D memory elements and an analog to ternary converter for DSP application as a fundamental block are developed and simulated using EDA tool. Finally computer simulation using EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tools like Tanner, spice and VHDL is also illustrated. In the first half of 19 th century G.Boolean have proposed the Algebra for two valued (Binary logic) system after that Shanon has expressed the behavior of electrical switches in terms of Boolean algebra and he paved the ramp to an industrial development that is recognized as initiating one of the most revolutionary economic changes ever. MVL is also known as Multi-Valued, Multiple-Valued or Many-Valued logic. Multi-Value logic is regarded as a switch with more than two states. Such as a 3- value switch with states ‘0’, ‘1’ and ‘2’. Or a 4-value switch with states ‘0’, ‘1’, ‘2’ and ‘3’. In case of 3-Valued logic the term ternary logic is used & term quaternary logic for 4-Valued logic. Alexander (1964) showed that the most efficient radix for implementation of switching systems is the natural base (e ≈2.71828), it seems likely that the best integral radix is 3 rather than 2.It should be noted that this book emphasis on Ternary logic with concepts and applications. The fundamental work on Multiple Valued Logic (MVL) System was done by E.L.Post in the beginning of 19 th centuries and based on that work P.C.Rosen Bloom modeled the Algebra for MVL is called Post Algebra.

Today’s networks of processors on and off chip, operating with independent clocks, need effective synchronization of the data passing between them for reliability. When two or more processors request access to a common resource, such as a memory, an arbiter has to decide which request to deal with first. Current developments in integrated circuit processing are leading to an increase in the numbers of independent digital processing elements in a single system. With this comes faster communications, more networks on chip, and the demand for more reliable, more complex, and higher performance synchronizers and arbiters. Written by one of the foremost researchers in this area of digital design, this authoritative text provides in-depth theory and practical design solutions for the reliable working of synchronization and arbitration hardware in digital systems. The book provides methods for making real reliability measurements both on and off chip, evaluating some of the common difficulties and detailing circuit solutions at both circuit and system levels. Synchronization and Arbitration in Digital Systems also presents: mathematical models used to estimate mean time between failures in digital systems; a summary of serial and parallel communication techniques for on-chip data transmission; explanations on how to design a wrapper for a locally synchronous cell, highlighting the issues associated with stoppable clocks; an examination of various types of priority arbiters, using signal transition graphs to show the specification of different designs (from the simplest to more complex multi-way arbiters) including ways of solving problems encountered in a wide range of applications; essential information on systems composed of independently timed regions, including a discussion on the problem of choice and the factors affecting the time taken to make choices in electronics. With its logical approach to design methodology, this will prove an invaluable guide for electronic and computer engineers and researchers working on the design of digital electronic hardware. Postgraduates and senior undergraduate students studying digital systems design as part of their electronic engineering course will struggle to find a resource that better details the information given inside this book
