Measuring Instrumentation
Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering (Plan: 419 - Estudio: 257)

Coordinating teacher: MARTIN MATEOS, PEDRO

Department assigned to the subject: Electronic Technology Department

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Electronic Technology in Biomedicine
Ability to analize and conceptually design electronic devices that permit to solve problems in biology and medicine. Moreover, the student has to be able to select electronic devices to implement an electronic function. It will be especially emphasized that the student understands the posibilities offered by actual electronic technology, and the associated problematic in the developement of new electronic technologies of interest in biology and medicine.
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
Block 1: Analog Electronics for Biomedical Instrumentation - Amplification - Frequency Response - Feedback Amplifiers Block 2: Aplication Circuits for Biomedical Instrumentation - Active Filters - Oscillators and waveform generators. - Sample&Hold Circuits. Sampling. - A/D and D/A converters. Block 3: Digital Systems for Biomedical Instrumentation - Digital System basic scheme (Computer) - Microprocessors. Arduino - Measuring system integration in biomedical Engineering
Learning activities and methodology
- Theory classes (large group), problem resolutions classes (small groups), individual tutorials and student personal homework; oriented to theoretical knowledge acquisition. - Laboratory practices and problems resolution classes in small groups, individual tutorials and student personal homework; oriented to practical knowledge related with the fields of the course. - Computer sessions in small groups using CAD tools for electronics circuits┬┐ simulations. The goal of these sessions is to encourage the use of the CAD tools to complement the theoretical-practical learning during the course.
