As we know the capacitance of a parallel-plates capacitor is determined by the formula C=εadwhere a is the plate square, d is a distance between plates,…
These types of transducer are used to measure force, pressure and acceleration. These sensors contain a piezoelectric element that generates the electric charge in…
A digital position encoder is a sensor that generates a digital signal that is proportional to the position of the device. The most frequent…
During circuit design it is important to make a proper connection between different circuit elements to avoid effects like screening, noise and others. Let's…
As we discussed before, the first step towards a proper measurement system is shielded, grounded and wired signals. The next step is conditioning –…
Digital-to-analogue (DAC) conversion converts binary words into voltage or current signal. And it's extreme values correspond to the 0s and 1s of binary code.…
