digital electronic is the branch in which most of the devices used work on direct current. this current is very less as compared to the current used in electrics. The direct current is more dangerous as compared to the altenating current, but it is harmful after a certain range like above 18 volts. But all the electronics appliances work below this range . The main things in digital electonics are 0 and 1.The whole of the digital electronics depends on 0 & 1. where o stands for 'off' and 1 for 'on'. It consists of logical gates and almost all the devices work on these gates .The basic gates are 'AND','OR','NOT' gates in this the AND gate performs multiplication, OR performs addition and the NOT gate acts as an inverter i.e if the input id 0 it converts it into 1 and vicersa. the gated derives from it are 'NAND' and 'NOR'. 'NAND' and 'NOR' are knows as universal gates, and with the help of these two gates all other gates can be derived it is called the realisation of gates. the other gates used in digital electronics. These two gates are derives from 'AND' gate and 'OR' gates. when a 'NOT' gate is added to 'AND' gate we get 'NAND' gate, and when a 'NOT' gate is added tp 'OR' gate we ger 'NOR' gate. The truth table of these gates are opposite to that of the gates from which it is derived. the other two gates are 'XOR' gate and 'XNOR' gate.

...Digitalelectronics, or digital (electronic) circuits, represent signals by discrete bands ofanalog levels, rather than by a continuous range. All levels within a band represent the same signal state. Relatively small changes to the analog signal levels due to manufacturing tolerance, signal attenuation or parasitic noise do not leave the discrete envelope, and as a result are ignored by signal state sensing circuitry.
In most cases the number of these states is two, and they are represented by two voltage bands: one near a reference value (typically termed as "ground" or zero volts) and a value near the supply voltage, corresponding to the "false" ("0") and "true" ("1") values of the Boolean domain respectively.
Digital techniques are useful because it is easier to get an electronic device to switch into one of a number of known states than to accurately reproduce a continuous range of values.
Digitalelectronic circuits are usually made from large assemblies of logic gates, simple electronic representations of Boolean logic functions.
Advantages
An advantage of digital circuits when compared to analog circuits is that signals represented digitally can be transmitted without degradation due to noise.[2] For example, a continuous audio signal transmitted as a sequence of 1s and 0s, can be reconstructed without error,...

Introduction
Digital circuits are circuits that use signals in digital form instead of analog forms. One distinctive feature of a digital signal is that it assumes discrete values, most of the time two values. A digital signal takes time to change from one value to another, and assumes intermediate values during transmission (Verma). Steady values are slightly inaccurate. Voltages within certain ranges are guaranteed to be interpreted as certain permitted values. In this technological era, digital circuits are more preferred in industries because of the many advantages they possess. Advantages range from good transmission due to low chances of being interrupted, to high efficiency.
Digital circuits also have disadvantages too but this assignment focuses more on advantages. Some of the notable disadvantages include use of more energy, hence more production of heat, they are more expensive due to high power consumption especially when in low qualities. This is just to mention a few.
Advantages of Digital Circuits
There are several advantages of digital circuits. These are the same features that make these circuits unique and efficient;
a) Signal Transmission Without Degradation

...ANALOGUE & DIGITAL SIGNALS

Tutor : - JAY PATEL

I . Analogue Signals : -
Analogue signal is a form of transmitting data such as voice, image or video using continuous signals. This is a relatively inexpensive way to transmit data. Analogue communications are usually sent via twisted cables or fibre optic cables and they are transmitted via a carrier signal which is set at a specific frequency.
The primary disadvantage of analogue signalling is that any system has noise – i.e., random unwanted variation. As the signal is copied and re-copied, or transmitted over long distances, these apparently random variations become dominant
Living examples: What we speak is analog signal.
II. Digital Signals : -
Digital Signals are much more common and desirable method of transmitting data. Digital information is put into a synchronized order to enable transmission. The information is then decoded when it reaches its final destination. There are not many opportunities for errors when using this method so information arrives intact and in the best quality possible.
One more aspect about digital signals they are binary digits that is they are represented using bits (Binary digits)
Until recently, most telephone, radio and television signals were sent via analogue communication devices and are still used in circumstances where...

In Praise of Digital Design
and Computer Architecture
Harris and Harris have taken the popular pedagogy from Computer
Organization and Design to the next level of refinement, showing in
detail how to build a MIPS microprocessor in both Verilog and VHDL.
Given the exciting opportunity that students have to run large digital
designs on modern FGPAs, the approach the authors take in this book is
both informative and enlightening.
David A. Patterson
University of California, Berkeley
Digital Design and Computer Architecture brings a fresh perspective to
an old discipline. Many textbooks tend to resemble overgrown shrubs,
but Harris and Harris have managed to prune away the deadwood while
preserving the fundamentals and presenting them in a contemporary context. In doing so, they offer a text that will benefit students interested in
designing solutions for tomorrow’s challenges.
Jim Frenzel
University of Idaho
Harris and Harris have a pleasant and informative writing style.
Their treatment of the material is at a good level for introducing students
to computer engineering with plenty of helpful diagrams. Combinational
circuits, microarchitecture, and memory systems are handled particularly well.

understand. The exercises are well-designed and the...
