Signal Conditioning

In this lab, students will learn the importance of signal conditioning in a data acquisition system. First, they will learn how analog signals are prepared for digitizing using various methods such as amplification, attenuation, filtering. Next, students will learn about the different circuits that are used for signal conditional. The students will design a signal conditioning circuit in a simulator and then verify their design using a sensor. Throughout the process, they will be answer short question to confirm their understanding.

This is lab 2 of 9 in the course, Measurements and Instrumentation.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Discuss the types of signal conditioning and their applications for different sensors and measurement types.
  2. Discuss ways to optimize a measurement system to produce a higher quality signal and increase the signal-to-noise ratio.
  3. Given a measurement scenario including a chosen sensor, design and implement an appropriate signal conditioning configuration.
