Course Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course begins with a review of circuit theory and then develops the principles and applications of analog and digital electronic devices and circuits.

EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of the course, the students should be able to:

·         Explain  the concept of an instrumentation system: to support accurate measurements

·         Design  program, calibrate and use a microprocessor-based instrumentation system

·         Analyse  and design an instrumentation system, dealing with the concepts of dynamic range, signal noise ratio, and error budget

·         Discuss Control noise, either intrinsic or external (interference).

·         Discuss  an operational amplifier spec sheet and use the specifications to construct an error budget for a high-gain amplifier

·         Examine  the operation of various instrumentation transducers

·         Describe and apply A/D conversion techniques such as successive-approximation, dual slope conversion, voltage frequency conversion.
