The main purpose of this subject is that the student acquires the knowledge and the skills to be able to analyze and design analogue electronic circuits of low frequency, which are most frequently used in data acquisition systems and electronic instrumentation systems.
+Introduction to electronic systems for signal acquisition: functional block diagrams and architectures.
+Feedback: definition and topologies.
+Introduction to sensors: definition and classification.
+Introduction to signal conditioning circuits. Auxiliary circuits: linearization circuits. Level-shifting circuits. Precision rectifiers. Voltage references. Voltage-to-current conversion. Analog switches and multiplexers.
+Amplification in electronic measurement systems: instrumentation amplifiers, programmable amplifiers, and isolation amplifiers.
+Sample-and-hold circuits, digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters.
The main goal of the laboratory sessions (practical work) is to enable the students to acquire sufficient understanding and knowledge to:
+ Assemble electronics circuits.
+ Use of laboratory instrumentation to measure of physical variables on circuits.
+ Detect and correct assembly errors.
+ Manage specific software tools developed to design, simulation and analysis of analogue electronic system.
