Πιστεύετε ότι η τάξη κυβερνά τον κόσμο μας; Τι ρόλο παίζει η τύχη στη ζωή μας; Αν πράγματι γνωρίζουμε τους νόμους που διέπουν όλα τα φυσικά φαινόμενα, γιατί δεν μπορούμε να προβλέψουμε με ακρίβεια το μέλλον; Με τη ραγδαία πρόοδο των επιστημών και της τεχνολογίας, ο άνθρωπος κυριάρχησε σε στεριές και θάλασσες, κατάκτησε τους αιθέρες και εξερεύνησε το διάστημα. Ήταν φυσικό λοιπόν να πιστέψει ότι έχει τον πλήρη έλεγχο της εξέλιξής του στον κόσμο! Στο τέλος του 20ού αιώνα όμως, η νέα επιστήμη της "Πολυπλοκότητας" ήρθε να μας δείξει ότι η φύση είναι πολύ πιο σύνθετη και απρόβλεπτη από ότι φανταζόμαστε!
While most popular digital design books present a perspective rooted in the 1970s and 1980s, Digital System Design takes the subject into the 21st century. It quickly moves through the low-levels of design, making a clear distinction between design and gate-level minimization. The book also emphasizes how one of the key uses of digital design today is to build high-performance alternatives to software in addition to glue logic. And it swiftly progresses to register-transfer-level (RTL) design since that is the level at which most digital design in practice today is performed.
