Description of contents: programme
1. Analogue processing chain of an instrumentation system: 1.1 Description of signals of the instrumentation systems. 1.2 Review of signal conditioning circuits 1.3 Noise and interference in instrumentation systems. 2. Data Acquisition Systems. 2.1 Integration of analog and digital signals in instrumentation systems: 2.2 Sampling and digital signal processing techniques. 3. Virtual Instrumentation: hardware and software. LabVIEW as reference software for the development of an instrumentation system 3.1 Tuning of the HW, management of resources of the HW 3.2 Implementation of virtual instruments 3.3 Development of modular applications 3.4 Design techniques, user interface and input / output control. 4. Laboratory project.
Learning activities and methodology
Lectures and practical classes in the computer room. In the latter students will see examples of the contents presented in the lectures, as well as LabVIEW basics. Laboratory work. Guided practices in the electronics laboratory for electronics set-ups. Also, based on that set-up and specifications, students will realize a development project using data acquisition card and LabVIEW software design tool.
