“Then there were the remarkable researches of Faraday, the prince of experimentalists, on electrostatics and electrodynamics and the induction of currents…The crowning achievement was reserved for the heaven-sent Maxwell, a man whose fame, great as it is now, has, comparatively speaking, yet to come.” (“Electromagnetic Theory” Vol. 1, page 8, by Oliver Heaviside.)



PREFACE (Volume 1)


The authors have become increasingly concerned at lack of clear and accurate information on many aspects of digital design, even though this fast growing discipline is the basis of the third largest industry in the U.S.A. They have decided to contribute towards remedying this situation by publishing a series of volumes which concentrate on those aspects of the subject which have been ignored or misunderstood.

   The authors graduated from British colleges. They have a total of more than forty years of experience in Britain and the U.S.A. on digital design, and have published widely in the technical journals. They give seminars on digital design, and act as consultants to industry.
