Digital Electronic Design, Volume 2

by Ivor Catt, David Walton, and Malcolm Davidson

(1979) C.A.M. Publishing St. Albans, England ISBN: 0 906340 01 2


“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.)


“We reverse this; the current in the wire is set up by the energy transmitted through the medium around it.” (”Electrical Papers” Vol. 1, page 438, by Oliver Heaviside.)


PREFACE (Volume 2)


Volume 2 contains more practical advice on day to day digital design, along with some disclosures of fundamental advances in the art. Further disclosures will be found in the sister publication “Electromagnetic Theory” by the same authors.

Volume 1 was well received and is now on the shelves of about half the university and research department libraries. Since it was published, interest in the authors’ quarterly seminar on digital design has greatly increased.

A good working relationship has developed with Wireless World, where the authors’ occasional articles and the resulting correspondence are well worth reading.
