The zyBooks Approach
Less text doesn’t mean less learning.
An exceptionally hands-on approach to presenting digital design by combining theory and practice, including various web-based simulators, like a circuit simulator, finite-state machine simulator, high-level state machine simulator, datapath simulator, and more, plus numerous tools, like a Boolean algebra tool, a K-map minimizer tool, etc. The material emphasizes a top-down behavior-to-circuits approach, for combinational, sequential, and high-level (register-transfer-level) design. Emphasis is placed on RTL design, where most modern digital design occurs. This material’s HDL (Verilog and VHDL) coverage is intentionally template focused, teaching just enough of the HDLs to understand the templates.
