The CMOS Cookbook contains all you need to know to understand and successfully use CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor) integrated circuits. Written in a "cookbook" format that requires little math, this practical, user-oriented book covers all the basics for working with digital logic and many of its end appilations.

Whether you're a newcomver to logic and electronics or a senior design engineer, you'll find CMOS Cookbook and its examples helpful as a self-learning guide, a reference handbook, a project-idea book, or a text for teaching others digital logic at the high school through university levels.

In the pages of this revised edition, you'll discover:

*What CMOS is, who makes it, and how the basic transistors, inverters, and logic and transmission gates work

*CMOS usage rules, power-suppy examples, and information on breadboards, state testing, tools, and interfacing

*Discussions of the latest CMOS devices and sub-families, including the 74C, 74HC, and 74HCT series that streamline TTL and CMOS interfacing

*An in-depth look at multivibrators - including astable, monostable, and bistable - and linear techniques

*Clocked-logic designs and the extensive applications of JK and D-type flip-flops

*A helpful appendix featuring a TTL-to-CMOS conversion chart

Author Notes

Don Lancaster is the head of Synergetics, a prototyping and consulting firm that specializes in electronic design and micro applications. Lancaster has written many books about personal computers and electronics. Among the best known are the CMOS Cookbook and the TTL Cookbook, but he is also the author of The Hexadecimal Chronicles, The Active Filter Cookbook, The Cheap Video Cookbook, The Incredible Secret Money Machine, and several books about Apple computers.

Lancaster's books are popular because he writes about technical subjects in a clear, understandable way. He has also written more than 200 articles, some of which have been collected in the book The Case Against Patents: Selected Reprints from Midnight Engineering and Nuts & Volts Magazines.

When not working with computers and electronics, Lancaster's interests include firefighting, bicycling, cave exploration, and ecology.
