This book brings a refreshing new approach to the problems of design in modern digital equipment. The authors have pioneered a complete reappraisal of electromagnetic theory, in the light of present-day developments in digital electronics. They have developed their ideas into a practical technique for dealing with many of the design problems facing those who constructing digital machines. New solutions to old problems are suggested here - solutions that may appear unorthodox, but have been shown to work effectively in practical designs.

" ... one of the most important things being said in the industry. It isn't
just a bundle of mathematics like much of the theory in industry, it's
practical. It gives a completely new insight into problem solving."

(A Development Engineer, quoted in Electronics Weekly, October, 1978)
