A major objective of this book is to fill the gap between traditional logic design principles and logic design/optimization techniques used in practice. Over the last two decades several techniques for computer-aided design and optimization of logic circuits have been developed. However, underlying theories of these techniques are inadequately covered or not covered at all in undergraduate text books. This book covers not only the “classical” material found in current text books but also selected materials that modern logic designers need to be familiar with.

This book documents all the features of the Android phones, approaching them from the point of view of a smart person who is intimidated by the technology and baffled by the scant documentation and online support. All topics for the Android phone will be covered, from setup and configuration, to use of the phone features: texting, e-mailing, accessing the Internet, maps, navigation, camera and video, synching with a PC, and expanding the phone’s potential with new software. As usual, humor is generously sprinkled throughout the text. The accessible and fun writing style provides relief but never gets in the way of the book’s important content. The reader will end up keeping this book close, referring to it often as they explore the features of their Android phone. It covers all the updates to the OS through the latest version release, Key Lime Pie.
