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, including amplification, attenuation, and filtering. Next, students will learn about the different circuits that are used for signal conditioning. The students will design a signal conditioning circuit in a simulator and then verify their design using a sensor. Throughout the process, they will answer short questions to confirm their understanding.
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Discuss the types of signal conditioning and their applications for different sensors and measurement types.
Discuss ways to optimize a measurement system to produce a higher quality signal and increase the signal-to-noise ratio.
Design and implement an appropriate signal conditioning configuration, given a measurement scenario including a chosen sensor.
